Product Description

The Shure Beta 91A is designed for use with kick drums, as well as other traditional low-frequency applications including piano. Featuring an updated microphone capsule, integrated preamplifier, and XLR connection, Beta 91A offers a strong low-frequency response and is specifically tailored for bass frequency applications. The Beta 91A combines superior attack and punch for studio-quality sound, even at extremely high sound pressure levels (SPL).

Shure Beta 91A Condenser Microphone Features

  • Uniform half-cardioid polar pattern for maximum gain-before-feedback and rejection of off-axis sound
  • Precision-engineered low-profile design features integrated preamplifier and XLR connector to maximize setup efficiency while minimizing stage clutter
  • Frequency response tailored for kick drum/low frequency applications with a wide dynamic range for use in high SPL environments
  • Two-position contour switch to maximize attack and clarity depending on application: select the flat response setting for natural sound in most applications or the “low-mid scoop” setting for a strong low frequency “punch” with plenty of higher frequency attack
  • Requires no external mounting or accessories for ease of use and storage
  • Furnished with zipper pouch

What is your opinion of this product?
This is an amazing microphone. With it flat response throughout its frequency range (20Hz - 20KHz) it captures the attack the kick drum very well. Its made to withstand any punishment you throw at it. Handling high SPL, it is at home with the hardest of rock bands, and its just as well with soft latin music.
