        Comments about Shure Beta 57A Microphone:

        It's a nice alternative to the SM-57 on snare. So far, I prefer it. I haven't used it on anything else. But it is the next step in my quest to transcend the SM-57 on snare, which is an unexpectedly difficult endeavor.

            generally use it to mic the top of a snare drum with no worries of it being hit by a drumstick

              Comments about Shure Beta 57A Microphone:

              I use the Beta 57 to amplify voices for a public board of education at remote meetings around the district. The mics' supercardioid pickup pattern provides excellent volume before feedback. It is a solid all-around performer that also sounds very good on recorded music performances.

                This mic is good for recording electric guitars and drums. It's also good for vocal performances at clubs (I know several singers who bring their own to performances rather than using the club's equipment).

                  Comments about Shure Beta 57A Microphone:

                  I bought this mic yesterday from a local music shop after comparing it to the sm57, sm58, and a cheap audio tech. mic. The Shure beta 57a had the fullness of the sm57 and 58 but also added a little more detail in the high end that I was looking for. Another good all purpose mic for me.
