High output BETA Series mics

Shure has been setting the standard for audio for over 80 years. They engineered their BETA® Series mics to provide powerful output and resistance to feedback, and their rugged construction ensures they'll stand up to the tough conditions you'll find on the road.

Your instrumental jack of all trades

Shure 57A

The 57A is the first choice for many guitarists for miking their amps.

Shure built the BETA 57A microphone to handle the demands of miking instruments and vocals, whether you're on stage or in the studio. This upgraded version of the legendary Shure SM 57 delivers powerful output with warmth and presence. The modified supercardioid pattern rejects unwanted sound and limits feedback issues. The BETA 57A is well-suited for use with drums, brass, woodwinds, vocals, guitar amplifiers, and just about anything else that makes noise!

    Why a dynamic mic?

    Dynamic microphones are engineered for the rigors of live performance and life on the road. Thanks to a very simple and rugged design concept that relies on few internal parts and no electronic components, they're tough, durable, and require no outboard power source to operate. Looking to outfit your church's PA system with vocal microphones? Need to mike your lead guitarist's cabinet for a big club gig? You'll find dynamic mics to fit the bill. If, however, you're looking for a recording microphone to capture sounds in exquisite detail, consider a condenser mic instead.
