I noticed all of the bigger stage/venues had this mic. You can get so much range from this half cardiod. Only issue I had, was that my mixer didn't have a way for me to take enough mids out and was causing it to clip. Better mic, required a better mixer.

I know some people would like to do to use 2 mics in the drum kick, but I’m telling you if you only use this one, it’s more than enough

I bought this mic to use in my Meinl Siam Oak String Cajon. This mic sounds incredible! The cajon sounds amazing through the PA. I tried recording using the Shure Beta 91A and it sounds great. I like it better than the sound that I was getting with my two mics placed outside of the cajon.

I use Shure Beta 91A Mics in all of my Kick drums. Mounted with the Kelly Shu suspension system. This mic needs very little help in the way of EQ.

Great mic, I've been looking for a good beater side kick mic for a while. I've tried several options but they were always at least a little intrusive or needed to be heavily gated. The sound of the beta 91a is immediately satisfying; the switch on the underside cuts right where I'd like.

This mic was everything that it was built to be! Great construction and awesome performance. I use it as an inner kick mic. Switching from the AKG D-112, I had to get used to the high end attack. After adjusting, I am finding a secure place for it in the mix!

This half cardioid condenser boundary mic will rock your kick. The beta 91a is specifically engineered for low frequency applications. With a built in mic pre-amp it really helps for low volume settings as well. This mic requires no external mounting and can just sit in a kick drum ready to roll.

    great low end response, half cardioid to isolate sound.

One of the best kick mics I’ve used! In Studio or Live this mic gives you a great warm sound. Totally recommend.

I use it in my kick drum when I need to be miked. The great thing is the punch I get from my kick drum. The convenience of not needing a small stand in front of my bass drum is another thing I like about it. It is a little pricey but worth the money.
