Shure Beta 56A Supercardioid Swivel-Mount Dynamic Microphone Details

Typical Beta 56A applications include close miking of tom-toms and other percussion instruments, as well as guitar amplifiers, brass instruments, and woodwinds.  NEW Wider mounting base capable of accommodating a larger range of microphone stands.
