THE Wow Factor For My Kick Sound!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!
Thanks Sweetwater Dudes!

Best bass mic I ever heardWe played at a huge indoor venue in North Carolina and my direct out on my SVT IV went down. The engineer hooked up Shure 52 and I was blown away!!! True to live speaker response reproduction! My bandmates all commented on how clear it sounded!

WOW!Couldn't believe how much bottom end I got with this mic when using it on kick this weekend. It had so much bottom end. I had so much thickness at 47hHz when used with a Pearl Masters 22x18 kick. Paired with a Royer R101 on the outside, I had a killer kick sound!
I'm definitely adding one of these to my arsenal. Might have just found my new go-to kick mic!

Great on Kick or Bass CabThe Beta 52A is one a true bargain. It is solid and it sounds great.
It handles high SPL without distortion and when placed properly it
can reproduce the source with punch and detail without undue color.
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.
