  • 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

Shure Beta 57a

  • 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

Shure Beta 57A Microphone

  • Summary: This Microphone (Shure Beta 57A Microphone) is the best mic I have ever used. I can't say enough, everyone should try one of these. I have been playing lead guitar for 4o years. I use it to mic my 65 Fender Twin Reverb. It made my guitar sound full and clear and improved my sustain.

Microphone for Instruments, Vocals, Speakers, anthing!

William L. Cronin, music123

  • Summary: The Shure Beta 57A is an absolutely unmatchable live microphone. The entire beta series by Shure is well known. This particular microphone works well for about anything. Traditionally 57's have been used to mic amps for live use, and this one follows suit.

Excellent

  • Summary: The Beta 57A is, quite simply, a fantastic microphone. I cautiously purchased 2 and now I intend to replace my entire range of SM58's & SM57's with the superb Beta 57A.Great for vocals, no need to get close to the grille due to its sensitivity.
