Shure Beta 57A Dynamic Microphone

Overview by GAK

The Shure Beta 57A dynamic microphone is easily one of the most versatile, well-built and best-sounding in its price range. Whilst it’s touted as a premium instrument microphone, it’s also a fantastic vocal mic that can cope with high gain levels and excel in noisy environments. If an all-round mic at an affordable price is what you’re looking for, the Shure Beta 57A is a fantastic choice.

Maximum Isolation

A key part of why the Shure Beta 57 A is a top dynamic mic to use live and in the studio is its supercardioid polar pattern. As a result, the Beta 57 A is more directional and boasts minimal off-axis colouration. This helps to isolate the sound source and greatly reduces feedback when performing with foldback monitors.

True Versatility

The broad frequency response and clear sonic character of the Shure Beta 57A make it an excellent microphone choice for drums, guitar & bass amplifiers, brass and vocals (though many have achieved incredible results when using the 57A in an unorthodox way). When it comes to vocals, the Beta 57A delivers a crisp presence and plenty of clarity.

Compared to the SM57, the Beta 57A presents additional high and low frequencies, which may make the Beta 57A a more versatile option. When choosing which one to use, especially for vocals, it’s worth trying them both out to see which one you prefer the sound of.

Road-Ready Construction

What many have come to Shure regard for is the legendary build-quality of their microphones. The Beta 57A is no exception, with a premium construction that’ll provide years of loyal service.

The rugged and robust Beta 57A features a hardened steel mesh grille that gives you the best of the SM57 and SM58 design, as it offers the full use of proximity effect like the SM57 and the protection of the SM58. The Shure Beta 57a also features a neodymium magnet which boosts the output & signal-to-noise ratio and a state-of-the-art pneumatic shock mount system that significantly reduces handling noise & vibrations.

If Shure’s Beta 57A dynamic microphone is the only one in your arsenal, you’ll be astounded at how much you can achieve with it. It’s a top notch instrument mic that captures a wide range of instruments with crisp sonic detail - amplified or acoustic. As a vocal mic, it’s exceptional for live performance with its high output, ability to take on tonnes of gain and rejection of unwanted sound.

  • Hardened steel mesh grille that facilitates use of proximity effect and resists wear and abuse
