Shure Beta 57A Microphone
The Beta 57A is a precision-engineered dynamic microphoneDynamic mics have a simple, rugged construction and can handle very high sound pressure levels.Read moreGo to the glossary designed for detailed reproduction of amplified or acoustic instruments. A tight supercardioidPicks up most sound in front of the microphone and very little from the sides, making it more directional than a cardioid mic.

What is the Beta 57A best suited to?
It’s a premium instrument mic ideally suited for the professional musician looking to mic up many types of amplified and acoustic instruments such as guitar amps, acoustic guitar, saxophone, snare drum and brass. It can also be used by vocal artists. The Beta 57A has the quality and ruggedness to be used both on stage and in the studio.
What are the characteristics of the Beta 57A?
It's tailored frequency response provides warmth and presence and maintains a true supercardioid pattern throughout its frequency range. This insures high gain-before-feedback, maximum isolation from other sound sources, and minimum off–axis tone coloration. The hardened stell mesh grille facilitates use of proximity effect as well as resisisting wear and abuse.
