Shure Beta 57 A

Dynamic Microphone

The dynamic Beta 57A proves its exceptional versatility in its transmission of acoustic and electric instruments, as well as as a vocal microphone. Its supercardioid polar pattern extends over the entire frequency range and guarantees high gain before feedback, maximum isolation from other sound sources, and minimum off-axis sound. The completely new mesh head design of the Beta 57A facilitates better use of proximity effect. Typical areas of use for this versatile microphone range from drum sets via a guitar amplifier, brass and woodwind instruments, to vocals and speech.

  • Supercardioid polar pattern
  • Optimized frequency range for drums, guitars, vocals and wind instruments in studio quality.
  • Uniform supercardioid polar pattern for high gain-before-feedback at maximum gain, and maximum suppression of background noise.
  • Hardened steel mesh grille facilitates the use of proximity effect and resists wear and damage.
  • Neodymium magnet for high output levels with minimal noise.
  • Pneumatic shock mount protects against impact- and handling noise
  • Frequency range: 50 Hz - 16 kHz
  • Output impedance: 290 O
  • Sensitivity: -51 dBV / Pa (2.8 mV)
  • Dimensions (L x Ø): 160 x 43 mm
  • Weight: 275 g
  • Compact and robust design
  • Incl. microphone clip and bag

Shure need i say more

Daniel B. 502, 14.11.2017
Here you are receiving a quality microphone at a great price. I have a couple and have multiple uses for them in my studio. As my old studio wizard once said 'if you have only a few quality mics, you have the world at your fingertips'. This is definitely true of this work horse. I have one on my snare drum and toms and with the tiniest compression this has a beautiful fat sound. Vocals also sound good through it and I've even recorded a sax with great results. Don't be scared to throw it in the mix of applications you wouldn't normally think. You will be pleasantly surprised with the results.

I personally so far have never had a problem with any shure product I own and quality in build as well as design is why. get one of these and you wont be sorry.

Great mic!

miguelrx10d, 29.03.2018
Amazing mic for snare drum! A bit more boxy than a 57 but with much less bleed! This allows you to be more aggressive with the EQ later without having tons of Hi-Hat spill.
Also built like a tank, as usual with Shure Microphones.
