  • Summary: Great mic. Compact, clean sounding, handles pressure well. Nice on horns. Nice on snare or toms. Nice on vox. A real desert island microphone. I wish I had 10 of these.

"Good for drums "

chrislieck, Audiofanzine
25 September 2012
  • Excerpt: I would buy these mics for LIVE SOUND application and for a home studio application. I would not buy these for professional recording nor would I use them unless it was my only option. I would invest in some 421's if I am serious about tom mics. I think that for the money I would consider this mic for a home studio but not for a pro studio if y...

"Great deal purchasing the 56A"

JimboSpins, Audiofanzine
25 September 2012
  • Excerpt: The price point of this microphone is by far the best aspect of it, you wont find any other drum microphones that will sound as good as the 56A for anywhere under 200 dollars. I am very happy that my garage band has chosen to use these microphones for our drummer. We always get clean recordings with the 56A, we have used the Shure SM57 for a whi...

" Versatile, reliable archi-"

"great for a good drum sound"

ericthegreat, Audiofanzine
10 January 2012
  • Excerpt: To make a kick drum sound full, this mic requires a little boost around 100-150 hz. Since I only paid $50 for it on a whim, I wasn't expecting it to sound amazing, but like I said, with a little EQ you can get some pretty good results for the money. Just like EQ'ing the low-end, some midrange EQ can bring out a really nice "thwack" out of a kick...

User Review

Kierkes, Audiofanzine
18 July 2011
  • Excerpt: The Shure Beta 56A microphone is a great solution to mic'ing drums, especially if you have the budget for it. The lower end PG56 at about one third of the price will also mic drums rather well, although there was something I couldn't quite place my finger on with the Betas. Combine these with a Beta 52A on kick and you have one nicely mic'ed up ...
