Get in and good!

O.S., 11.10.2009
If you divide music equipment so roughly, then there are things that sometimes work and others that always lead to at least a reasonable result, usually even a very good one. The former disappear from the market at some point - the representatives of the second kind are often classics, which are used for decades as a standard.

The Beta 52a is a representative of the second kind - with this microphone you can not go wrong in the bass drum. Reinstellen, depending on the taste closer to the Schlagfell (a lot of kick) or a little further away (more belly, rounder sound), lower the lower middles around the 600Hz something on the desk and to taste a little bass to the 80Hz to - finished the bass drum.

The Beta52a is also well-suited for the removal of a closed bass drum in front of the front drum - it gives a warmer, fuller and slightly longer sound depending on the mood of the bass drum - the littering of the other instruments of the drum kit is louder than with positioning in the bass drum, but well tolerated.

I've used the mic in different bass drums (birch, maple, 20 "+22") and always received a very useful signal - no acrobatics on the EQ were needed to give the bass drum the sound it should have.

The microphone is sturdily built and also worked well for a 16-meter state-of-the-art. The acceptance of a bassamp should also be feasible.

So far, the only shortcoming is the reducer sleeve for mounting on our European microphone stands - which sometimes turns out of the case - who does not want to experience this at the wrong moment on the stage, secures the sleeve with a drop of thread locking adhesive ...

Conclusion: a very useful classic for the bass drum with further use for low tone. This micro is also accepted by almost every drummer and technician - important for those who buy their equipment not just for their own use. It is "cheap" in the positive sense of the word.

Robust, live and studio suitable.

Franz V., 01.11.2009
I had read that the Shure Beta52A was very suitable for Live, but had it for home listening purposes. As expected, you could also get the most punchy bass drum sounds live, which even came to the fore when recording the concert with a camcorder.

When they told me and my band that you can not get crisp bass drum sounds in home recording, because everything about Noisegates, etc. is going on these days, we were initially demotivated, but still tried to get the best out of it. The result was fantastic! The punch that was so inspiring live was now also heard as a recording. Just a corresponding equalizer over it and you had almost studio sound - and no home recording experience!

The robustness expected of a Shure proves the Beta52A also, without frills, hard and direct. As you wish. And all at a reasonable price.
