Shure Beta 52A
Supercardioid Dynamic Microphone
The Shure Beta 52A is a low-output dynamic microphone with a tailored frequency response designed specifically for kick drums and other bass instruments. It is capable of handling extremely high sound pressure levels (tested to 174dB at 1000Hz).
The Beta 52A was introduced in October 2002, as a revision of the Beta 52 microphone. The sound of the two models is identical. The ‘A’ revision improved the design and reliability of the integrated mic clip.
The moving-coil capsule inside the large basket measures just over 1'' in diameter.
The Beta 52A does not use an output transformer. According to Shure, it contains a passive EQ circuit consisting of “two capacitors, an inductor, and a resistor.”
The Beta 52A ships with a storage pouch (Shure p/n 26A21) and a European thread adapter.
The Shure Beta 52A is also known as: Beta 52A, Beta52A.
The mic was released in 2002.
