  • 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 "

  • Excerpt: Great mic for drums ala toms. I don't like them for snare. Use an SM57 over this mic. Great hard hitting low end bump at 200 hz. I do have to ad top end or a boost at about 5k. They are not clean sounding mics but they work for tom toms. Specs say 50 to 16k but I doubt this mic has anything going on about 12k. For just over 100.00 I think it is good for drums. I happen to use this mic on a horn track recently and I must say I liked the track and the mic a lot.

  • Excerpt: The Shure Beta 56A is a super cardioid microphone that is made for drums and a few other instruments. I have only used it on drums, but I have heard it sounds great with some acoustic instruments.

" great for a good drum sound "

  • Excerpt: I read another review on the Shure Beta 56A and had to have it soI bought this from Guitar Center from one of their closeout sales years ago. It is a dynamic microphone intended on kick drums and bass instruments like tuba. Although I have yet to mic a tuba with it, with the proper placement this mic can make a kick drum sound pretty sweet.

  • Excerpt: The Shure Beta 56A is a microphone touted as a drum and instrument microphone from Shure, but I am not acquainted with anyone who actually uses these little beauties for anything but drum mic'ing. The first thing to note is the the microphones themselves are extremely compact, making their positioning on a drum set painless and easy, unlike the well loved

  • Excerpt: The Shure Beta 56A is a dynamic microphone that can be used both in the studio and for live sound reinforcement. I've actually only used the microphone in a live sound setting. I don't usually do live sound at all, but recently the studio that I work at put on a show and we used a few of these mics on the drum set. The mic is dubbed as any instrument mic, although I'd say it's definitely best for drums.
