Shure Beta 87C Cardioid Condenser Mic
The Shure Beta 87C is the cardioid variant of the Beta 87A.
In contrast to the "A" variant, the 87C sports a tighter cardioid pattern for better rejection of sound towards the back of the mic. This makes it better for loud stage monitors that may cause unwanted feedback.
Despite the slightly different frequency curve brought on by the different polar pattern, the 87C retains much of the character of its "A" variant sibling.
If you're looking for a studio-sounding stage mic for louder stage volumes with floor monitors, the Beta 87C is a great pick especially if you've tried the 87A but experienced feedback concerns.
