Perform with accuracy from live performance to the recording studio with the e614 Supercardioid Condenser Microphone from Sennheiser. This member of Sennheiser’s Evolution 600 microphone series delivers an extended frequency response, high SPL handling, fast transient response, and more—all in a compact size. The Evolution 600 series is made with beginning users in mind, making it a great entry-level investment that doesn’t compromise on quality.
Capture the details of percussion with vibrant accuracy; the e614 picks up the shimmer and contacts of sticks, mallets, and hands on drums and percussion. Its low-profile build makes it easy to fit into tight spaces. Originally designed for drumset overhead miking, the e614’s capacity to handle high sound pressure levels makes it a great choice for other instruments that are rich in transient response, from percussion to guitar, brass, woodwinds, strings, and even vocals (due to its wide, flat frequency response of 40Hz-20kHz). Other applications include sound reinforcement, general recording, and recording in home studios.
The supercardioid polar pattern makes it easy to “aim” the mic toward the desired sound source, eliminating ambient sound at the off-axis sections of the mic’s capsule. This helps in minimizing feedback and avoiding the accidental capture of residual noise. The medium sensitivity reduces “bleed” from other instruments on stage.
Entry-level doesn’t necessarily mean a compromise in quality. Sennheiser’s Evolution 600 mic series is designed with beginning musicians in mind. Whether you’re a solo drummer, in a newly formed band, or simply a musician looking to capture your music, the e609 is an affordable option that doesn’t sell your sound short. With its enhanced isolation from other onstage signals, another potential application for this mic is for instrumental miking in houses of worship, school concerts, or other smaller stage venues.
