Pros

similar to the Shure SM57, which is already popular and makes this familiar right away

1 agrees

almost never gets feedback, automatically accounts for it

1 agrees

excellent value for such a high quality microphone, would normally expect to pay quite a bit more

1 agrees

offers different types of pickup purely based on positioning - sharp and aggressive at the center of a speaker, or sweet and smooth when off to the side

1 agrees

versatile design great for using on everything from drums to woodwinds

1 agrees

not much configuration needed, just plug it in and go

1 agrees

sensitive enough to the vocal range to account for a variety of voice types

The Shure Beta 57A is a high output supercardioid dynamic microphone designed for professional sound reinforcement and project studio recording. The Beta 57 series are a step up from the hugely popular SM57 series and are typically used to mic instruments as well as vocals; while the 58 series are used mainly for vocals. Some common applications include drums(snares, hats also), guitars, horns and woodwinds, either live or in the studio. The inside contains a Neodymium magnet for high signal–to–noise ratio output and it is encased in a hardened steel mesh grille that facilitates use of proximity effect. An advanced shockmount is included for minimizing noise and vibration.

Features
  • Tailored frequency response provides drums, guitars, vocals, and horns with studio quality sound
  • Uniform supercardioid pattern for high gain-before-feedback and superior rejection of off–axis sound
  • Hardened steel mesh grille that facilitates use of proximity effect and resists wear and abuse
  • Neodymium magnet for high signal–to–noise ratio output
  • Minimally affected by varying load impedance
  • Advanced pneumatic shock mount system that minimizes transmission of mechanical noise and vibration
  • Legendary Shure quality and reliability
