The compact Shure BETA 56.A is a high output supercardioid dynamic microphone designed for professional sound reinforcement and project studio recording. Its extremely uniform supercardioid pickup pattern provides high gain before feedback and excellent rejection of unwanted noise.
A built in dynamic locking stand adapter with an integral XLR connector simplifies installation. The stand adapter keeps the microphone securely in place, even if it is struck by a drumstick. Typical BETA 56A applications include close miking of tom toms and other percussion instruments, as well as guitar amplifiers, brass instruments, and woodwinds.
