The PGA98D-LC from Shure is a professional-quality cardioid condenser microphone optimized for drums and percussion; also, it is designed with a drum mount, a flexible gooseneck, and an integrated preamplifier. It can be used to capture audio in applications for live stage, theater, recording studios, houses of worship, and more.
The PGA98D-LC is built with a molded one-piece drum mount for fast, low-profile mounting and removal. The cast zinc housing provides durable construction with an updated design, which is now with a black metallic finish and grill. In addition, the integrated preamplifier provides a direct XLR connection for the 11-52 VDC phantom power required to power the microphone.
The microphone cartridge of the PGA98D-LC is tailored for clear reproduction of drum and percussion sound sources with its 60 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response. The flexible gooseneck also makes accurate positioning of the mic an easy setup. Finally, a zipper pouch is included for additional protection during storage or transport.129
