Good bass mic

Shure Beta 52Published on 08/25/11 at 16:40
Shure Beta 52A Features:
-Perfect for kick drum and other low frequency information
-20Hz to 10kHz, presence boost at 4kHz
-Strong proximity effect for tonal variation
-Supercardioid pickup pattern for excellent isolation
-Max SPL: 174dB

This mic is a good bass/kick drum mic for both live and studio sound. It's relatively cheap and built tough so it works on stage but has a sound quality good enough to use in the studio.

OVERALL OPINION

This microphone has a pretty good sound. I primarily put it on bass cabs or the outside of a kick drum. It has a nice beefy bass response that can get some great tones. I prefer the AKG D112 to this mic for those applications but it...…

OVERALL OPINION

This microphone has a pretty good sound. I primarily put it on bass cabs or the outside of a kick drum. It has a nice beefy bass response that can get some great tones. I prefer the AKG D112 to this mic for those applications but it is pretty similar in quality. I like to pair this mic with another mic with higher frequency response because it gives a nice low "oomf" but lacks some clarity. On a kick I use this on the outside and put a RE20 on the beater. On a bass cab I will use this paired with a 57, 4050, or just a bass DI. I haven't tried this microphone on much other than really low frequency sound sources but it sounds good on those. For the price its a really good deal. A decent kick mic will improve drum sounds greatly. If I had the option to buy this again, I would just pick up a second D112 because I slightly prefer its sound to the Beta 52.

OVERALL OPINION

Bought back the bass drum.
Works perfectly in this use provided you take the time to place it correctly, and have ad hoc microphone stands (foot cast if possible ...)
Also works well on bass amp.
Expensive but durable.
