Main Features

  • Small diaphragm condenser microphone
  • Cardioid capsule with interchangeable functionality
  • Multipurpose microphone
  • Ultra compact design

The Shure Beta 181 is an ultra compact, small diaphragm side-address condenser microphone with interchangeable capsules for different polar patterns. This enables discreet placement and versatility in tight conditions for various applications.

The Shure Beta 181/C 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.

Cardioid Capsule

The Shure Beta 181/C comes with the RPM181/C cardioid condenser capsule. The cardioid capsule is best suited to overheads, piano and acoustic instruments. You can also use the cardioid capsule for M/S stereo micing, in conjunction with another microphone with a bi-directional capsule.

Although this package comes with a cardioid 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.
