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

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.

Love it for live vocals
CarlL, 19.12.2015
I use this in studio for snare, but I really love it live on my (backing) vocal. The lead singer uses a 58 and having this for my vocals really helps me cut through without too much confict whilst not having to EQ too much (but with a high HPF applied). In the typical setting with monitors on either side, its pretty good at rejecting feedback

Shure Beta 57 A
Graham George, 11.12.2018
An excellent mic for any studio, if you want great results with both instrument recording and voice!

I have always purchased Shure microphones over the years, and the quality of this mic is no exception to their rule of top quality sound!

It is well made, sturdy, and comes with a case to add protection when/if travelling.

I'm using it for both voice and instruments, and it works perfectly with both! I had read reviews elsewhere that it was "more of an instrument mic", but I needed just one mic, (on a budget), and took the chance with this one, as others had reviewed that it worked perfectly well for both.

Glad I did because they were right. The clarity that I know of and loved in the past, from Shure mics when singing, is no less present in this model than others I've heard and owned.

Great product, well recommend it.
Be sure to order the correct lead for this mic when purchasing, as it is not supplied with one.

Very happy with this microphone and its wide ranging uses!
