The Shure Beta 56A microphone has a frequency response specifically tailored for drums and instruments. It's 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 micing of tom-toms and other percussion instruments, as well as guitar amplifiers, brass instruments, and woodwinds.

A Work Horse


I have had a Beta 56 for a long time. I use it to mike a tube type 120 watt amplifier and other things when needed, and I love it. Simple to use as a sound renforcement tool. Position it right and the sound from the PA system will speak for it's self. No phantom power to deal with. " Simple to use and sounds great," tough and reliable in and out of many gigs " Well worth the cost". " A must have item for a working musician on the go " " If it wasn't a good mic I wouldn't have it or recommend it"
