Shure Beta 52A Instrument and Bass Drum Microphone
Shure’s Beta 52A provides a frequency response that is perfect for bass instruments with a 20Hz to 10kHz frequency response, making it ideal for kick drums. This mic also provides a presence boost at 4kHz that allows the kick to really cut through the mix, which is essential for both studio and live performance scenarios. The Beta’s supercardioid pickup pattern promotes an increased proximity effect, meaning you can play around with the position of the mic to the kick drum to customize the sound that you’re looking for. Because of this microphone’s rugged build, it’s a device that you will never hesitate to bring on the road with you; so take it to that next gig, set it up in front of your kick, and get ready to shake the room with your footwork.
