A worthwhile option.

  • Excerpt: It's a nice alternative to the SM-57 on snare. So far, I prefer it. I haven't used it on anything else. But it is the next step in my quest to transcend the SM-57 on snare, which is an unexpectedly difficult endeavor.
  • Pros: Durable

  • Excerpt: I use the Beta 57 to amplify voices for a public board of education at remote meetings around the district. The mics' supercardioid pickup pattern provides excellent volume before feedback. It is a solid all-around performer that also sounds very good on recorded music performances.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Use, Versatile

  • Excerpt: Great sound! I used SM57 , sennheiser e945 and MD421, AE6100. But beta57A is clearer and brighter sound.beta57A works good sound with cheap preamps. But I feel thinner than other mics very slightly.

Shure Beta 57a

14 August 2010
  • Excerpt: I bought this mic yesterday from a local music shop after comparing it to the sm57, sm58, and a cheap audio tech. mic. The Shure beta 57a had the fullness of the sm57 and 58 but also added a little more detail in the high end that I was looking for. Another good all purpose mic for me.
  • Pros: Cheap, Clear Sound, Easy To Use, Quality all purpose mic
