Sturdy mic that sounds great.

I've used mostly this and the AKG D112 and I have to say I like the Shure Beta 52 better. Even though the frequency response is pretty similar I do prefer the sound coming from the Shure.

The build quality is great, and if feels like you could choose a Beta 52a as you weapon of choice in the coming zombie apocalypse and you'd stand a pretty good chance.

I do wish they had designed the "holder" for the mic a bit differently, I find that the mic is to tall to work good with floor kick stands. But then again I don't have the most flexible of stands.

I have (contrary to the other review) used this on bass amps and I really like it, maybe not as a solo mic, but as a complement (with a 57 and/or a line signal) it's nice, this has been mostly heavily distorted bass. Recording clean bass might very well be different story,

Great Mic for "Kick-in" Drum

This microphone gives you exactly what you'd expect from it inside of a kick drum. Instant low end punch, and snap due to it's calibrated eq curve. Positioning is very easy with great results. What this mic will not give you is that sub thump "kick-out" sound (achieved with yamaha subkick or large condenser 3feet in front of kick). Even positioned as "kick-out" will not perform as good as subkick or large condenser.
Haven't tried it on other instruments other than cajon which sounded good but positioning proved to be tricky. I'm guessing that bass amp sound wouldn't sound so great with it, but would definitly like to try it on baritone sax.

Solid Mic

This is a fantastic mic for most kick drum sounds. I mainly use it for rock and metal as there is plenty of punch in it. It is very solid,well built and durable. I also use this mic for recording bass amps as it can give a very thight sound.

It does what it says on the tin

A studio and live classic, this is a lovely mic, solid and sturdy. It's great for rock and pop in particular and with kicks above 20". Works well on jazz kicks but I'd generally pick a D112 for that application. The mic attachment location is much better than the D112 though and it's relatively easy to place. A must for any studio in my opinion.

Worth its weight!

As a comparative newcomer to live sound, I'd taken guidance from both trusted experienced tour engineers plus read reviews here and elsewhere before purchasing.

Whilst there were almost as many mic choices as opinions (!) time and again people said that they included the Beta 52A as a reliable, go-to mic in their armoury.

Having used it a couple of dozen times on a kick drum in a live environment I can understand why - forgiving on placement, punchy, a huge amount of low end yet a decent amount of attack.

Most of the stages I've worked on have been small with front line monitors in close proximity to the mic - no problems with feedback however.

Like many Shure products, the high build quality gives you the confidence that not only are you working with a great mic but that it will last you for years.

Highly recommended.
