Shure BETA 52A Overview

  • 1Description

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 super-cardioid polar pattern insures the highest possible gain before feedback while minimizing noise at the off-axis sections of the microphone. A built-in locking stand adapter with XLR input simplifies installation when placing inside of a kick drum and it's steel mesh grill protects the element form damage.

Tailored Frequency Response
The low frequency response make it more than suitable for bass drum, acoustic and electric bass capturing.
Supercardioid Polar Pattern
The supercardioid polar pattern delivers the highest possible signal before feedback while minimizing noise at the off axis sections of the microphone.
Neodymium Magnet
The Neodymium magnet delivers higher gain levels than that of standard element magnets.

    Shure BETA 52A Reviews

    BETA 52A - Dynamic Instrument Microphone is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice kick mic I use this live at work, but it is good for recording as well. I have one in my private collection as well. I prefer it over the D112 personally. There are a few other choices out there, but this is good for the price
