The Shure BETA®56A microphone has a frequency response specifically tailored for drums and instruments.
Its extremely uniform supercardioid pickup pattern provides high gain-before-feedback and excellent rejection of unwanted noise.
A built-in dynamic locking stand adapter with an integral XLR connector simplifies installation.
The stand adapter keeps the microphone securely in place, even if it is struck by a drumstick.
Typical Beta 56A applications include close miking of tom-toms and other percussion instruments,
as well as guitar amplifiers, brass instruments, and woodwinds.
