About the Shure Beta 52A Kick Drum Package
With all the details involved in shopping for a microphone, it's easy to forget that you'll also need a microphone stand and cable. We designed this bundle to simplify shopping, and save you some cash.
Shure made the BETA 52A mic for kick drums and other low-frequency applications.
The bundle starts with Shure's BETA 52A, a heavy-duty dynamic microphone which captures the full attack and punch of kick drums and other bass instruments, even when sound presure levels are high. The mic's modified supercardioid pattern rejects unwanted sound and limits feedback issues. The BETA 52A is built like a tank, with a hardened steel mesh grille, a locking stand adapter, and an integrated XLR connector.
The K&M stand holds your microphone securely.
You'll install the BETA 52A in this high-quality, German-made, low-height tripod microphone stand from K&M. It's not just another stand, it's a piece of equipment you'll use for years to come. We also include a Whirlwind 25-foot microphone cable to connect the mic to the mixing board.
The BETA 52 bundle is ready to capture your kick drum or other lower-register instruments. Let it work for you, and save a bundle.
