      Combines superior attack and punch for studio-quality sound.

      The Shure Beta 91A is designed for use with kick drums, as well as other traditional low-frequency applications including piano. Featuring an updated microphone capsule, integrated preamplifier, and XLR connection, Beta 91A offers a strong low-frequency response and is specifically tailored for bass frequency applications. The Beta 91A combines superior attack and punch for studio-quality sound, even at extremely high sound pressure levels (SPL).

      A 2-position contour switch maximizes attack and clarity depending on application. Select the flat response setting for natural sound in most applications or the "low-mid scoop" setting for a strong low frequency "punch" with plenty of higher frequency attack. Requires phantom power. Comes with zippered pouch.

      Features
      • Uniform half-cardioid polar pattern for maximum gain-before-feedback and rejection of off-axis sound
      • Precision-engineered low-profile design features integrated preamplifier and XLR connector to maximize setup efficiency while minimizing stage clutter
      • Frequency response tailored for kick drum/low frequency applications
      • Wide dynamic range for use in high SPL environments
      • Two-position contour switch to maximize attack and clarity
      • Requires no external mounting or accessories for ease of use and storage
      • Furnished with zipper pouch

            This is for sure a must have mic for drummers. I have a beta 52, and the 91A is a nice addition because it really gives the punch of the kick.

                If you're looking for a cajon mic, deep BD, or stage mic this is your mic!
                Especially for cajon though!

                So much better than the "All Powerful" Subkick.

                Comments about Shure Beta 91A Kick-Drum Mic:

                One of the best purchases you could make to mic your drum kit, also would work great with a bass cab! You would just have to buy a special mount.
                Great look, built extremely well, only thing you have to watch is the thin cord that hooks up to the adapter.
                This is at a GREAT value if you want some extra punch to your bass drum, and it is $150 cheaper than the Yamaha Subkick, and it fits inside the bass drum easily ontop of a pillow so you don't have this weird looking drum,that is actually a microphonem outside of your bassdrum.

                Incredible Thump and Punch

                By Anonymous

                from Undisclosed

                Comments about Shure Beta 91A Kick-Drum Mic:

                This mic is truly amazing in a kick drum. It has great low end along with a clear, high, punch. I typically use it by itself, but I have paired it with a Beta 52, Audix D6, and AKG D112 and all the results where different, yet amazing. Try running your EQ flat with a 5k boost for nice punch and plenty of low-end. This mic is excellent and I highly suggest it.
