Shure Beta 56A

Wired Microphone

The Shure Beta 56A is a dynamic mic with a super cardioid pickup pattern that is most popular for it’s use on drum kits, specifically toms, but also using the over-under technique on snares. Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers) has this mic on his snare. It’s frequency range of 50Hz – 16kHz gives it enough response for some usage on guitar amps also.
