Shure Beta 57A Instrument Microphone 50Hz To 16kHz

The Shure Beta 57A® is a high output supercardioid dynamic microphone designed for professional sound reinforcement and project studio recording. It maintains a true supercardioid pattern throughout its frequency range. This insures high gain-before-feedback, maximum isolation from other sound sources, and minimum off–axis tone coloration.

Excellent for acoustic and electric instruments as well as for vocals, the extremely versatile Beta 57A dynamic microphone provides optimal warmth and presence. Typical applications include drums, guitar amplifiers, brass, woodwinds and vocals.

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

Type Dynamic (moving coil)

Frequency Response 50 to 16,000 Hz view larger

NOTE: The curve above shows on-axis response at a distance of 2 feet from a uniform sound source. Your response may vary, depending on microphone position.

Polar Pattern Supercardioid, rotationally symmetrical about microphone axis, uniform with frequency.

Output Level (at 1,000 Hz) Open Circuit Voltage -51 dBV/Pa* (2.8 mV) *1 Pa = 94 dB SPL

Impedance Rated impedance is 150 ohms (290 ohms actual) for connection to microphone inputs rated low Z.

Phasing Positive pressure on diaphragm produces positive voltage on pin 2 with respect to pin 3.

Connector Three-pin professional audio connector (male XLR type).

Case Silver blue enamel-painted die cast metal with hardened, matte-finished steel mesh grille.

Adjustable Stand Adapter Slip-in, adjustable through 180 degrees, with standard 5/8"-27 thread.
