The Shure Beta 181/BI is a multipurpose instrument microphone that can be used on a wide variety of applications including guitars, bass and drums (overheads and snares). A total of four different capsules (Cardioid, Supercardioid, Bi-directional, Omni-directional) are available in the Shure Beta 181 series, allowing you to interchange them according to the specific application.
The Shure Beta 181/BI comes with the RPM181/BI bi-directional condenser capsule. The bi-directional capsule is best suited to mono overheads, or for the recording of two instruments simultaneously on one channel.
Although this package comes with a bi-directional capsule, the Shure Beta 181 can be purchased with any one of the four mic capsules in the series. You'll then need to buy any additional capsules separately.
