Shure BETA 57A Instrument/Vocal Microphone

SHURE BETA 57A Instrument Microphone (& Vocal)


The SHURE BETA 57A is excellent for acoustic and electric instruments as well as for vocals. It provides optimal warmth and presence. Typical applications include drums, guitar amplifiers, brass, woodwinds and vocals.

The SHURE BETA 57A Instrument Microphone is an excellent microphone when sound quality really matters. Its outstanding high-output capability and supercardioid pickup pattern make it able to provide an even cleaner and more precise signal than SM57. It rejects even more of the surrounding sound from other performers, crowds and speakers, making it less likely to create feedback and unwanted room reflections, providing an extremely clean sound to the sound engineer or directly to a PA system.

We offer the BETA 57A for dry or full production hire in Sydney, based on what you need. You can even, hire the product for multiple days and get a really competitive price, plus we only charge you for the days that the item is in use and not for the transportation/setup dates.
