Shure Beta 52A at a Glance:
Amazing Kick Stage Mic
The supercardioidcardioid pickup pattern limits interference from other on-stage sound sources and reduces feedback. The frequency response is perfectly tailored for bass instruments with a 20Hz to 10kHz frequency response with a presence boost at 4kHz to let electric basses and kick drums cut through the mix.
Great for Studio Work
In the studio, the Beta 52A excels on low-frequency sound sources. Supercardioid mics have a tendency toward increased proximity effect. Since the Beta 52A sports a supercardioid pickup pattern, positioning the mic closer to sound sources results in a bigger bottom-end response. This is great for tailoring the sound for the specific project.
Like all Shure mics, the Beta 52A is built like a tank, meaning that you can travel with it from gig to gig and rest assured that it will last. Shure mics are famous for their bulletproof construction, and the Beta 52 is no exception. Night after night, the Beta 52A will perform!

by tabletopdrummer from Indiana, U.S.A.Love the beta 52 mic! Amazing sound, has THE punch that my kick was lacking, but gives it a nice warm low end when your playing is more subtle. I really dig the way my kick sounds now!

This mic is the counterpoint of the AKG D112, which to me is more
about a tight attack than a full spectrum reproduction of the source.
It is one of my favorites on bass cabinets. close [-]
