  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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. For the price of the Shure beta 56A it is most definitely one of the best in its class.

  • 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.

  • 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.
