Take charge of your sound on the stage or in the studio with the e609 Silver Supercardioid Dynamic Instrument Microphone from Sennheiser. This member of the Evolution 600 microphone family is specifically engineered for miking guitar cabs face-on, letting you place it extremely close to the signal source without worrying about distortion. Featuring a hum compensating coil, advanced shock-mount design, and rugged metal body, the e609 is also a great choice for miking drums, particularly toms.
This microphone is characterized by a dynamic element, which is capable of handling loud instruments in close proximity without suffering from noise or distortion problems. 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.
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 musician, in a newly formed band, or simply a guitarist 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 instrument miking in houses of worship, school concerts, or other smaller stage venues.
