- Wide Frequency Response
- Low-Profile Design
- Cardioid Polar Pattern
- Interchangeable Cartridge
- Product: #4010
- SKU: BETA91A
The Shure Beta 91A is a boundary microphone that can double as a kick drum mic, as it can capture the punch and attack of low-frequency instruments such as kick (bass) drums. It features a wide frequency response well suited for capturing a variety of audio signals such as organ and piano. The flat, boundary design also aides in producing a strong, solid low-end response, as well as make it easy to mount inside of a bass drum. The Beta 91A is ideal for both recording and sound reinforcement alike.
- Uniform half-cardioid polar pattern for maximum gain-before-feedback and rejection of off-axis sound
- Low-profile design features integrated preamplifier and XLR connector to facilitate setup efficiency while minimising stage clutter
- Frequency response tailored for kick drum/low frequency applications with a wide dynamic range for use in high SPL environments
- Two-position contour switch to maximise 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

Australian Shipping Via DHL
DHL offers a great express shipping service to Australia from New Zealand. We are proud to be able to offer express shipping to main cities on the east coast of Australia, within the same timeframe ( If not quicker ) than local Australian courier companies.
