Question:
How does the Beta 57A differ to the Beta58A?
Answer:

The form factor of the mics is different. The different grilles influence the frequency response resulting in a slightly different sound reproduction in the higher frequencies. In addition, the Beta 57A grille allows a little closer placement of the microphone cartridge, which translates to higher output, more gain before feedback, and a more bass response due to proximity effect.
