The Shure GLXD4 system with Beta 87A is perfect for singers who want a tighter tone: The Beta 87A, despite living in the shadow of the legendary Beta 58, might be just the mic capsule you need thanks to its tailored frequency response: the rolled off low end compensates for the proximity effect for a really natural tone that isn't boomy, perfect for male singers with low voices or even for female singers that want a very natural tone.
The GLX24's intelligent frequency management can move to a frequency with better reception mid performance with no interruption to the signal! The GLXD24 System also uses cutting edge digital 2.4GHz wireless technology and is licence-free!
