The durable Beta 56A was specifically built to handle drums and instruments, with a compact, pivoting design that makes it a great choice for positioning in tight spots. It's die-cast case, hardened steel grille and integral locking stand adapter make the Beta 56A ideal for years of use.

Shure BETA 56A Dynamic Instrument Microphone at a Glance:

  • Perfect for close miking of snares and toms
  • 50Hz to 16kHz Frequency Response
  • Strong proximity effect for tonal variation
  • Supercardioid pickup pattern for excellent isolation
  • Max SPL: 174dB

    Amazing Snare and Tom Mic

    The supercardioid pickup pattern limits interference from other on-stage sound sources and reduces feedback. The frequency response is perfectly tailored for snares or toms with a 50Hz to 16kHz frequency response to let drums through the mix.

    Great for Studio Work

    In the studio, the Beta 56A excels on drum sound sources. Supercardioid mics have a tendency toward increased proximity effect. Since the Beta 56A sports a supercardioid pickup pattern, positioning the mic closer to sound sources results in a bigger bottom-end response. This is great for tailoring the sound for the specific project.

    Rugged Reliability

    Like all Shure mics, the Beta 56A is built like a tank, meaning that you can travel with it from gig to gig and rest assured that it will last. Shure mics are famous for their bulletproof construction, and the Beta 56A is no exception. Night after night, the Beta 56A will perform!

    What Shure Says...

    The Shure BETA®56A microphone has a frequency response specifically tailored for drums and instruments. Its extremely uniform supercardioid pickup pattern provides high gain-before-feedback and excellent rejection of unwanted noise. A built-in dynamic locking stand adapter with an integral XLR connector simplifies installation. The stand adapter keeps the microphone securely in place, even if it is struck by a drumstick. Typical Beta 56A applications include close miking of tom-toms and other percussion instruments, as well as guitar amplifiers, brass instruments, and woodwinds.
