The Shure DMK57-52 is the industry-standard drum microphone and hardware kit featuring options for kick drum, snare drum, rack toms, floor toms, and congas.
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.
Mountable drum microphones for live sound and recording
Includes 3 SM57 microphones, 1 BETA 52A microphone, 3 A56D drum-mounting systems, carrying case, and user guides
SM57: The industry standard for snare, and a reliable, high-performing choice for toms, the Shure SM57 features a contoured frequency response that cuts through the mix with exceptional impact, while reproducing sound accurately.
BETA 52A®: Perfect for the kick drum, this mic derives low-end punch and sonic presence from a carefully tailored frequency response. Equipped with its own pneumatic shock mount, the BETA 52A is designed with an integral locking stand mount for easy set up.
A56D: 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.
3x 57s, a Beta 52 and, the often overlooked, A56D mounts (which kick serious ass) for $500 is a seriously good deal. Those clamps are $55 each alone. It's a savings of over $200 and even comes with a slick little carry bag.
