Default Re: Shure Beta 52a and AKG D112 - Video

The D112 was a touch deeper sounding on your bass drum. The Beta 52 sounds good on smaller bass drums, but it had a little more click in the sound, which some people like.
On my bass drum, I like a D112 the best. The Beta 52 sounds a little 'boofy' on my bass drum, for the tuning I use, the small amount of muffling, and size of it.

On your D112 and overheads section, it seemed to sound fuller overall. Not saying the 52 can't sound the same, but if you didn't change any settings between them, the D112 just sounded a touch fuller, even if by a slight margin.

You'd do well with either. No wrong choice.
