My Review

I’ll keep the review short and simple. This is a kick drum mic. You may have a use for somewhere else but I bought it as a kick mic. Stick it inside the bass drum on top of the pillow and you get the slap of the beater. Its exactly what I needed. Dont expect to have this as the only mic youll need on kick. This one gives you the click and the other outside mic gives you the boom.

I found that micing the mic didnt really change the sound so basically I just throw it in there. There is a contour switch with two settings, one flat and one with low mid scooped. I go with the scoop.

Once recorded, it doesnt require much eq if any for me. It just works.

Its a shure beta so its well built
