Shure Beta 56A Tom Snare Drum Microphone

 SHU BETA56A
Product Description

The Shure Beta 56A dynamic microphone has a frequency response specifically tailored for drums and instruments. An extremely uniform supercardioid pattern provides high gain-before-feedback and excellent rejection of unwanted noise. An integrated swivel-mount with XLR connector simplifies mounting and adjustments.

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.
