SHURE BETA BASS DRUM MIC PACK:
Includes BETA 52A LARGE DIAPHRAM BASS MIC & 91A PLATE CONDENSER MICROPHONE

Condenser:
Lightweight, sensitive diaphragm. Precisely and smoothly captures sound nuances. Powered by battery or phantom power supply.
Recommended Uses
Kick Drum
Piano/Organ

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).

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

Beta 52A Dynamic Kick Drum Microphone

The Shure Beta 52®A 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.

Shure Beta 52A Dynamic Mic Features:

  • Frequency response shaped specifically for kick drums and bass instruments
  • Built–in dynamic locking stand adapter with integral XLR connector simplifies setup, especially inside a kick drum
  • Studio quality performance, even at extremely high sound pressure levels
  • Supercardioid pattern for high gain before feedback and superior rejection of unwanted noise
  • Hardened steel mesh grille that resists wear and abuse
  • Advanced pneumatic shock mount system that minimizes transmission of mechanical noise and vibration
  • Neodymium magnet for high signal–to–noise ratio output
  • Low sensitivity to varying load impedance
  • Legendary Shure quality and reliability
