Beta 52A Super Cardioid Dynamic Mic


The Shure Beta 52 A 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.Features:- Frequency response shaped specifically for kick drums and bass instruments - Built-in dynamic locking stand adapter with integral XLR connector simplifies setup, especially inside a kick drum - Studio quality performance, even at extremely high sound pressure levels - Supercardioid pattern for high gain before feedback and superior rejection of unwanted noise - Hardened steel mesh grille that resists wear and abuse - Advanced pneumatic shock mount system that minimizes transmission of mechanical noise and vibration - Neodymium magnet for high signal-to-noise ratio output - Low sensitivity to varying load impedance - Legendary Shure quality and reliability
