The Shure Beta 57A dynamic instrument microphone provides high gain before feedback in demanding environments. It features a steel mesh grille for durability, shock mount to minimize transmission of unwanted noise, and a neodymium magnet for high signal-to-noise ratio.

What is the Beta 57A best suited to?

It’s a premium instrument mic ideally suited for the professional musician looking to mic up many types of amplified and acoustic instruments such as guitar amps, acoustic guitar, saxophone, snare drum and brass. It can also be used by vocal artists. The Beta 57A has the quality and ruggedness to be used both on stage and in the studio.

What are the characteristics of the Beta 57A?

It has a tailored frequency response provides warmth and presence and maintains a true supercardioid pattern throughout its frequency range. This insures high gain-before-feedback, maximum isolation from other sound sources, and minimum off–axis tone coloration. The hardened stell mesh grille facilitates use of proximity effect as well as resisisting wear and abuse.

Customer reviews

Overall Rating 4.8 (4 reviews)

Great Mic. Just what I needed for a more focussed snare sound when recording.

STEWART M. - 4/12/2018

Love it on guitar but especially on snare. Prefer it to the SM57 in this case.

Michael K. - 29/12/2017

A good mid priced microphone which did as expected. The bundle with the stand and XLR lead is excellent value.
