Drums & Percussion

Percussion and drum microphones shape the sound to your style. Mics specialized for each drum or cymbal. Overheads. Complete sets. Shure covers your kit.

Shape the setup to your sound.

Just like a cookie-cutter trap set won’t hold your tune, a one-size-fits-all microphone setup won’t always fit your kit. A lot of pieces? A leaner set? There’s always a mic combo that suits your sticks.

Shure drum and percussion microphones cover every shell and cymbal smarter. For a beginner or a touring professional, in the studio or at the show, we’ve got the options to help you customize the coverage to your kit.
