The Shure Beta 52A is a high output, dynamic microphone with a tailored frequency response designed specifically for kick drums and other bass instruments. It provides superb attack and "punch" and delivers studio quality sound even at extremely high sound pressure levels.

The Beta 52A features a modified supercardioid pattern throughout its frequency range to insure high gain-before-feedback and excellent rejection of unwanted sound.

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 microphone position fixed and resists slipping, even when subjected to sharp blows and strong vibrations. A hardened steel mesh grille protects the Beta 52A from the abuse and wear associated with touring.

I owned this mic in 2001. I eventually sold it to pay the bills and tried every other mic for kick drum available. AKG, Sennheiser, Audix...None have had the same response that the Beta 52 presents. I love it's great ability to capture what a kick drum actually sounds like. It's unmatched for the price!

I own this mic and have used it for live sound reinforcement many times. Pros: Full spectrum sound, can handle high SPL, decent all-round kick mic. Cons: much too heavy (in weight, not sound!), too much attack vs. thump ratio. I like this mic and it (and a few others) are basically the industry standard when it comes to kick drum mics. Honestly I prefer the cheaper and lesser-known Apex 125 - seems fuller on the bottom and not quite as "snappy" in the top. Other mics I use include the Shure 91/beta 52 combo, Audix D5 and AKG D112. Out of ALL these, I still prefer the cheapo Apex which seems to work very well in any live situation. I'd still give this 4 stars overall for being a good all-round kick drum mic.
