Shure BETA52A Kick Drum Mic
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, customized 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 minimizing 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.
