Shure Beta 52A

Dynamic MicrophoneThe Shure Beta 52A is a dynamic microphone with high output power and a transmission range specially optimised for maximum bass drum punch and accommodating other low-frequency instruments.

It offers a very good response, excellent punch and delivers studio quality even at extreme volume. The superheterodyne characteristics of the Beta 52A ensure maximum isolation of the sound source and high feedback while considerably diminishing background noise.

The adjustable tripod adapter with integrated XLR connector simplifies the positioning of the microphone, especially when used inside the bass drum. At the same time the snap-in tripod adapter holds the Beta 52A securely in place even in hard shocks and strong vibrations. The basket made of hardened steel provides protection against the stresses of the rough stage.

  • Portable stand adapter with integrated XLR connector for easy installation, especially in the bass drum

Sturdy mic that sounds great.

Anders A., 01.05.2014
I've used mostly this and the AKG D112 and I have to say I like the Shure Beta 52 better. Even though the frequency response is pretty similar I do prefer the sound coming from the Shure.

The build quality is great, and if feels like you could choose a Beta 52a as you weapon of choice in the coming zombie apocalypse and you'd stand a pretty good chance.

I do wish they had designed the "holder" for the mic a bit differently, I find that the mic is to tall to work good with floor kick stands. But then again I don't have the most flexible of stands.

I have (contrary to the other review) used this on bass amps and I really like it, maybe not as a solo mic, but as a complement (with a 57 and/or a line signal) it's nice, this has been mostly heavily distorted bass. Recording clean bass might very well be different story,

Great Mic for "Kick-in" Drum

Igan, 27.10.2013
This microphone gives you exactly what you'd expect from it inside of a kick drum. Instant low end punch, and snap due to it's calibrated eq curve. Positioning is very easy with great results. What this mic will not give you is that sub thump "kick-out" sound (achieved with yamaha subkick or large condenser 3feet in front of kick). Even positioned as "kick-out" will not perform as good as subkick or large condenser.
Haven't tried it on other instruments other than cajon which sounded good but positioning proved to be tricky. I'm guessing that bass amp sound wouldn't sound so great with it, but would definitly like to try it on baritone sax.
