The Beta 57A offers a tight supercardioid pattern and provides excellent gain-before- feedback. The compact grille design allows low-frequency proximity effect to enhance bass for close-up vocals. Frequency response is 50 to 16,000 Hz.

Sure SM86: Small Cost. Big Sound.


This mic sounded pretty good out of the box. I got it home and plugged it in to my Digidesign 003 and just sang some scratch vocals and i was pretty impressed with the clarity and warmth considering the size of the mic's diaphragm. This mic sounded decent with EQ or reverb added to the vocals. I would recommend this mic to anyone looking for a low-cost, handheld condesor microphone for live performance or low budget home studios.

Shure Beta 57A - This Microphone Can't Be Beat!


"This microphone is simply amazing! It has so many applications. For my uses, I use it primarily to mic my 30 watt guitar amplifier. But I know that my drummer's planning on getting at least one for his snare and possibly more for his toms. It's used at times for vocals... This mic is the Leatherman of live sound! It's so versatile and can do just about anything. Every musician should own one of these miics. Also, this mic has superior gain before feedback and a tighter polar pattern than the old SM57. It also has a steeper presence peak if I am not mistaken. I should also mention that this mic has made feedback a thing of the past for my band. I was afraid that I would have trouble with feedback, but have had zero problems. I just put my amp behind me, mic it up, and let wail. It's simple, it's efficient, it's practical. This mic was well worth every penny I spent on it. It's so clear and real and natural. And I have almost infinite options with the sound, because it's sound changes reltaive to it's placement. -center of my speaker, this mic provides a sharp, aggressive attack. But after moving it merely 2.5"" down to the left, I found that I got a sweeter, smoother, more tailored response. It's crazy and it's fun, too! This mic was well worth my money and would be well worth yours, too. This microphone WILL NOT disappoint! Go for it!"



An excellent all around mic!


"I use this mic for lots of different live applications but I think it works best on a snare. It just gives it a nice, tight, crisp sound and preforms better than any other drum mic I've used. I also know that lots of studio professionals use it for the same appllication."
