Shure designed the BETA 56A dynamic microphone for close miking instruments in a live show or a recording session. The integrated stand adapter keeps it securely in place, while the advanced pneumatic shock mount system minimizes vibrations — even when you're miking drums. The BETA 56A features a frequency response curve that'll make your drums and instruments sound their best, while its supercardioid pattern rejects sounds from other instruments.
