Overview: The Shure Beta 58A is a precision-engineered professional microphone
for live sound reinforcement and studio recording. It has a tailored, smooth frequency response, tuned
specifically for vocal applications. The Beta 58A comes with a swiveling stand mount, a 5/8"-to-3/8"
thread adapter, and a
zippered carrying bag.
Pickup Pattern: The Beta 58A has a supercardioid polar pattern,
which picks up the most sound from directly in front and sides of the microphone.
It features a tailored low-frequency roll-off, which helps the performer take
advantage of the proximity effect, while preventing explosive low-frequency
sound during close-up use. Its greatest sound rejection is at 120° toward the
rear of the microphone, where monitors should be placed. A microphone/monitor
locator is included to help you properly position the monitors.
Construction: The microphone has a silver blue painted die-cast metal handle. The hardened steel mesh ball grill protects the
internal elements, and resists wear and abuse. Inside the grille is an
integrated "pop" filter that reduces explosive breath sounds and wind noise.
Mounting: The Beta 58A comes with a swiveling stand mount, which
provides a secure mount to a floor stand or a boom stand. The microphone slips
into the swivel mount, which lets you tilt the microphone forward or backward over 180°.
A 5/8"-to-3/8" thread adapter is included for alternate mounts.
Connector: The Shure Beta 58A has a 3-pin male XLR connector. No
microphone cable is included in this package.
