The Shure BETA®52A is specifically designed as a high-output dynamic microphone for kick drums and other bass instruments, delivering a unique frequency response tailored for these applications. Renowned for its excellent attack and punch, the microphone is capable of producing studio-quality sound, even under extremely high sound pressure levels. The Beta 52A is distinguished by its modified supercardioid pattern across its frequency range, ensuring substantial gain-before-feedback and exceptional rejection of unwanted ambient sound.
To facilitate easy installation, especially when positioning the microphone inside a kick drum, it includes a built-in dynamic locking stand adapter equipped with an integral XLR connector. This adapter is engineered to maintain the microphone's position securely, providing resistance against movement or slipping, even when it faces intense physical impacts or vibrations. Durability and resilience in touring and performance environments are further assured by the microphone's hardened steel mesh grille, offering robust protection against wear and physical abuse.
