Description

The DMK57-52 Drum Mic Kit is a conveniently packaged selection of microphones and mounts, designed to offer a core package of microphones for recording and performing drummers at a great price.

Industry-standard drum microphone and hardware kit features options for kick drum, snare drum, rack toms, floor toms, and congas. Mountable drum microphones for live sound and recording. It includes 3 SM57 microphones, 1 BETA 52A microphone, 3 A56D drum-mounting systems, carrying case, and user guides.

BETA 52A Dynamic Instrument Microphone
The Shure BETA 52A is a high output dynamic microphone with a tailored frequency response designed specifically for kick drums and other bass instruments. It provides superb attack and “punch,” and delivers studio quality sound even at extremely high sound pressure levels.

The BETA 52A features a modified supercardioid pattern throughout its frequency range to insure high gain before feedback and excellent rejection of unwanted sound. A built–in dynamic locking stand adapter with an integral XLR connector simplifies installation, particularly if the microphone is to be placed inside a kick drum.

The stand adapter keeps the microphone position fixed and resists slipping, even when subjected to sharp blows and strong vibrations. A hardened steel mesh grille protects the BETA 52A from the abuse and wear associated with touring.

SM57 Dynamic Microphone
The Shure SM57 unidirectional dynamic microphone is exceptional for musical instrument pickup or for vocals. With its bright, clean sound and carefully contoured presence rise, the SM57 is ideal for live sound reinforcement and recording. It has an extremely effective cardioid pickup pattern which isolates the main sound source while minimizing background noise. In the studio, it is excellent for recording drums, guitar, and woodwinds. For musical instruments or vocals, the SM57 is a consistent choice of professional performers.

Features

  • Performance tested, industry standard
  • Uniform cardioid pick-up pattern for maximum gain before feedback and excellent rejection of off-axis sound

A56D Drum-Mounting Systems
This universal drum mount system can be used to position mics virtually anywhere -- drum rims, mic stands, even cymbal stands. Designed with captive parts to prevent the loss of individual pieces, the A56D is small, secure, and can be used with any standard mic.

The Shure A56D mounts microphones on a drum or cymbal. It fits stand adapters with a 5/8-in, 27-thread. An L-adapter extension curves at a 90° angle for optimum microphone placement.

The clamp fits drum rims measuring from 1/2-in. (12.7 mm) to 2 1/4 -in. (57.2 mm) in height, or on cymbal stands measuring from 3/8-in. (9.5 mm) to 1 1/8-in. (28.6 mm) in diameter.
