Shure Microphones

Steve is a proud endorser of Shure Microphones.

Of his Shure setup, Steve says: "For most gigs, I use a simple mic setup: 4 overheads and a bass drum mic. I use a Shure Beta 52 on the bass drum and four Shure KSM 137s as overheads.

I use four overheads because my kit is rather spread out and with two overheads, it may not cover the 16" floor tom and 12" side snare. I position the mics so they are over the drums rather than over the cymbals. Occassionally, I'll use a Shure SM57 on the main snare, and when I use tom mics, I like the Shure SM 98s."
