    The Shure BETA57A 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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic instrument (and vocal) mic There's a reason pro sound hire companies carry a dozen of these to every gig... a real all rounder, a bit sexier in the lower mid range than a plain old sm57, which also makes it a capable "alternate" vocal mic (some people suit a 58 or a beta 58, some voices suit a beta 57, depends on your timbre) as well as a workhorse guitar / drum microphone. For recording use, I use as an alternative to condenser mics to prevent mixes from becoming too "thin", by layering softer, slightly fuller dynamic mic sounds beneath more detailed, present ones...
