Shure Beta 98H/c is the mic that has a male XLR end attached to the cable.  It plugs directly into a mixer or a mic cable to extend it, etc...

Shure WB98H/c is the same exact mic, but the wireless system version.  It has the mini-XLR (TA4F) that plugs into a Shure wireless system beltpack.

There's also a Drum mount version of the Beta 98, but that one does not have an "alligator" clip.

This mic should be OK for a 34 key piano box.  It may be pushing it, but I use it on a 30 Key Piano box and it's perfect.  You could try just one and see if you like it.  If it's lacking, just get another one.  If one of these doesn't work, you'll need two.  Most all mics in this price range for this application have close to the same pickup range and performance.

The Hohner Vamonos mic is not the right mic for this application.  With a bigger box like this, you'll be stuck with either wireless beltpacks or cables.

No, WB98H/c is just the mic.  If you need the entire wireless system, then the product number is different.

Shure has different levels of wireless systems.  The one you posted in a picture, I think looks like the SLX, a step up from the entry level unit.  That system I believe is SLX14/ Beta 98H.  That's probably is your best bet, but don't get anything lower than the PGX system which I think is PGX14/Beta 98H.

I say "I think" because Shure for some reason seems like they want to hide their wireless system numbers.  They're not alway consistent or the same from dealer to dealer, and it's not always clear how to find them on their website.  But if you tell a Shure dealer those part numbers, they should be able to figure it out.

The mic in the PGX system and the Beta 98H/c are the same mic...exactly the same.  Only difference is that one is a wireless system and the other is just a mic.  And yea, it's totally worth it.  In my opinion, that is the price of entry for a wireless system.  Any less than that range ($400-$500) and you're rolling the dice.  If you have the money, don't give it a second thought...buy it.  If you don't... wait until you do.
