Shure BETA 52A

Kick Drum Microphone


Shure BETA 52A

The drum microphone provides low-frequency bass punch and SPL handling. It includes a dynamic locking stand adapter for easy set-up, a steel mesh grille for durability, a shock mount for sound isolation, and a neodymium magnet for a high signal-to-noise ratio.

The Shure BETA 52A is a high-output dynamic microphone with a tailored frequency response designed specifically for kick drums and other bass instruments. It provides superb attack and “punch”, and delivers studio-quality sound even at extremely high sound pressure levels.

The Beta 52A features a modified supercardioid pattern throughout its frequency range to insure high gain-before-feedback and excellent rejection of unwanted sound. A built-in dynamic locking stand adapter with an integral XLR connector simplifies installation, particularly if the microphone is to be placed inside a kick drum. The stand adapter keeps the microphone position fixed and resists slipping, even when subjected to sharp blows and strong vibrations. A hardened steel mesh grille protects the Beta 52A from the abuse and wear associated with touring.
