Designed specifically for kick drums and other bass instruments, the Shure Beta 52A high-output dynamic microphone provides very good attack and “punch”, and delivers studio quality sound even at extremely high sound pressure levels. A successor to the preferred Beta 52, the 52A includes a redesigned knob and tightening mechanism for more durability and a much wider mounting base that may accommodate a larger range of mic stands.

The Shure Beta 52A microphone.

The Beta 52A includes a modified supercardioid pattern during its frequency range to insure high gain-before-feedback and very good rejection of unwanted sound. A built-in dynamic locking stand adapter with an integral XLR connector simplifies installation, particularly if the microphone is to be placed inside a kick drum. The stand adapter assists in keeping the microphone position fixed and resists slipping, even if subjected to sharp blows and strong vibrations. A hardened steel mesh grille protects the Beta 52A from the abuse and wear associated with touring.
