The Beta 52®A is a precision-engineered dynamic microphone with a tailored frequency response designed specifically for kick drums and other bass instruments. It provides superb attack and “punch,” and delivers studio quality sound even at extremely high sound pressure levels (SPL). An integrated, locking stand adapter simplifies mounting and adjustments.
Featuring a modified supercardioid pattern, the Beta 52A exhibits remarkable gain before feedback and excellent off-axis rejection. A hardened, steel mesh grille and die-cast metal construction withstands years of abuse, making it ideal for touring sound reinforcement.
