Authorised N.Z. SHURE dealer (12-month warranty)

The Shure BETA 56A is a dynamic super-cardioid dynamic instrument microphone designed for general instrument recording and sound reinforcement applications. The microphone features a tailored frequency response custom made for capturing toms, snare drums, guitar and bass amplifiers, brass, woodwinds and more. The BETA 56A features a super-cardioid polar pattern which rejects audio around the off-axis sections of the microphone. This ensures maximum gain before feed-back while minimising noise and audio at the off-axis sections of the capsule. The capsule's Neodymium magnet provides maximum audio gain while providing a very low noise floor. A built-in stand mount provides quick and easy microphone placement.
