Product Description

The Shure Beta 52A Dynamic Bass Drum Microphone is a precision-engineered dynamic microphone with a tailored frequency response and integrated swivel-mount with XLR connector designed specifically for kick drums and other bass instruments. The Beta 52A provides superb attack and punch, and delivers studio quality sound even at extremely high sound pressure levels.

A built-in dynamic locking stand adapter with an integral XLR connector simplifies installation, particularly if the microphone is to be placed inside a kick drum. The stand adapter keeps the Beta 52A mic position fixed and resists slipping, even when subjected to sharp blows and strong vibrations. A hardened steel mesh grille protects the Shure Beta 52A bass drum mic from the abuse and wear associated with touring.

Excellent purchase!
What is your opinion of this product?
You really can't get a better kick drum mic. This thing is perfect for any kind of music, but especially for hard/heavy rock since it has so much punch with tons of bottom end.
