The Shure BETA 52A is a dynamic supercardioid instrument microphone designed for capturing kick drum, acoustic bass, bass amplifiers, and other instruments with similar frequency response and sonic character. The BETA 52A features a contoured frequency response, customised for capturing signal registering at low frequencies. The microphone accurately captures the attacks that contribute to the "punch" of the signal. The supercardioid polar pattern ensures the highest possible gain before feedback while minimising noise at the off-axis sections of the microphone. A built-in locking stand adapter with an XLR connector simplifies installation when placing the mic inside of a kick drum and its steel mesh grille protects the element from damage.
Tailored Frequency Response
The low-frequency response makes it more than suitable for bass drum, acoustic and electric bass capturing.
Supercardioid Polar Pattern
The supercardioid polar pattern delivers the highest possible signal before feedback while minimising noise at the off axis sections of the microphone.
The Neodymium magnet delivers higher gain levels than that of standard element magnets.
