Ensure that your instrument sounds its best with the e 608 dynamic instrument microphone from Sennheiser. A member of the Evolution 600 series, this miniature microphone has been specially designed for miking wind instruments, brass, percussion, and drums. It’s easy to set up and simple to operate, making it an ideal entry-level choice of audio equipment.
The e 608 features a miniature supercardioid element mounted on an adjustable gooseneck. The gooseneck mount allows you to achieve the perfect placement of the mic—so you can get it close to your instrument while remaining inconspicuous. Meanwhile, the supercardioid polar pattern makes it easy to “aim” the mic toward the desired sound source, eliminating off-axis ambient sound, minimizing feedback, and avoiding the accidental capture of residual noise.
This microphone is also characterized by a dynamic element, which is capable of handling loud instruments in close proximity without suffering from noise or distortion problems. The e 608 is constructed of durable fiberglass housing and comes with a tear-resistant cable as well as a rugged integrated shock mount that is intended for firm placement on instruments during lengthy performances—all the components and quality you rely on to get a stellar performance again and again.
