  • sounds great as a vocal mic also!

    As reviewed by cdp on 4/24/2007

    I own a Beta 57 and a Beta 58, as well as a few 'standard' 57's and 58's. By my own ear and after getting several positive comments from vocalists and band members - the Beta 57 is my 'secret weapon' live vocal mic. For the right vocalist, it seems a touch warmer and less harsh than the Beta 58 when pushed. Two different female vocalists that I perform with absolutely love the sound of this mic, and I agree. Through my small/medium venue pa system, with little or no coloring from the EQ, this mic is warm and crystal clear, even when the volume increases. R&B, Jazz, Funk, Reggae and Blues vocalists- don't overlook this mic!

  • Great Acoustic Harmonica Mic

    As reviewed by Mark Friedman on 4/24/2014

    Just tried out the Shure Beta 57a for harmonica on an acoustic gig. Fantastic mic for the price (runs around $135). Picks up clearly the subtleties of rhythm harp at around one foot away with some great bass proximity effects when you move in to around few inches from the mic for a lead. The tone is both warm and crisp filling in some of the mids that are normally missing from my Marine Band Crossovers on an acoustic set up and bringing out the beef on my Marine Band Deluxes and Blue Midnights. Think I might even use it in some of my home recording projects as well, even though it cost less than half of the AKG C2000 I current use for acoustic harp home recording! Think it might be almost comparable in sound quality to some of the ribbon mics I have used in various studios with much more of gritty live vibe. Mad Dog Friedman

  • Warm Sound

    As reviewed by Lee Miyauchi on 11/14/2012

    I just purchased this mic and I was blown away. I use this microphone for vocals. My voice is clear and gives a warm prescence. I like to sing variety styles of music, and this microphone picks up a balance frequency.
