The Shure DMK57-52 Drum Microphone Kit is a cost effective microphone kit that includes everything needed for capturing drums and percussion in live sound and recording applications. The kit includes three Shure SM57 dynamic cardioid microphones, a Beta 52A kick drum microphone and three A56D universal drum mounts. The SM57A cardioid dynamic microphones are popular with recording and live sound engineers. The microphones are well suited for capturing snare, toms, conga, bongos, timbales, cymbals, overheads and more.

The Beta 52A features a tailored frequency and sensitivity response for accurate reproduction of kick drums, floor toms, timpani and other low-frequency producing percussion instruments. The A56D universal mounts are rugged and effectively mount the SM57's to drum and percussion rims, hardware, etc. The entire kit is designed to withstand the rigors of life on the road, in the studio or at home.

Shure DMK57-52 reviews

DMK57-52 Drum Microphone Kit is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from drumming with Shure Pretty standard drum kit mic set up for both studio & live. I tend to prefer an i5 for snare, but the 57 is OK there as well. I've always liked the thump of the beta 52a on kick - so this made a great way to get the kick and some additional 57's - even if they aren't always going to be used on the drum kit. The clamps are well made and work fine, but judging from other folks sets, are a bit of a pain to take apart enough to keep neatly organized between uses. Not sure there's an ideal solution for tom clamps - but these are quite good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome combo not just for drums! 3 SM57's? AND a beta 52 kick drum mic?! Hello! This is a great little package! Very versatile for lots and lots of different applications. Who doesn't use 57's? The drum rim mounting system is very well designed and built solidly but apart from live applications not much use in the studio as it can damage the tone of the drums. Lovely little molded plastic case for the kit to sit in between uses. Very happy with mine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Value That is a nice package: getting 3 SM57 and a Beta52 and plus 3 mic clips!! Although, the mic clips are free, they are not so good to use on congas, and that it's frustrative. Even on drum rims they don't fix so well, This is the only negative aspect of the kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DMK57-52 Drum Microphone Kit by Shure I bought the product for drum kit, and that is what I use them for. The microphones are amazing. It is great that they come with holders, and the holders are very comfortable to work with!!!
