Shure Beta 52 Microphone

The Shure Beta 52 is a high output microphone, specifically made to cater for kick drums and other low-end instruments. The Shure Beta 52A is a powerhouse kick drum microphone. Thanks to a premium capsule housed inside a bulletproof metal enclosure, the 52A sounds as formidable as it looks. Frequency response shaped specifically for kick drums and bass instruments.

Boasting more depth than your average kick mic, the Beta has been fine-tuned to harness super-low sub frequencies. As well as that all-important midrange punch. Combined with a gentle top-end boost, you’ll get fully formed drum tones immediately. There’s no need to wrestle with EQ, which is why you’ll see the Beta in venues worldwide. It’s the mic to reach for when you want the right kick sound.

Built-in dynamic locking stand adapter with integral XLR connector simplifies setup, especially inside a kick drum. Studio quality performance, even at extremely high sound pressure levels. Supercardioid pattern for high gain before feedback and superior rejection of unwanted noise. Advanced pneumatic shock mount system that minimizes the transmission of mechanical noise and vibration.
