    Sennheiser E609

    Sennheiser e 609Published on 03/06/10 at 15:00
    Large diaphragm microphone designed special like for miking guitar amps. Compact design. Silver on the input side. Black on the audience side. I play loud rock guitar and I am very picky about the tone of my rig being accurately sent to FOH. I use some effects in my signal path and want them to make the trip out front too! Sound techs like 'em too!

    Bought two of them at Piano's N Stuff in Blawnox, north of Pittsburgh. I think I picked them up for just under a $100.00 each since I was buying two.

    I use two combos in my live set up. Any two of the following: Marshall 5175, Fender Studio Lead. Tech 21 Trademark 60. Hughes and Kettner Attax 80 or Gallien Krueger Backline 100. You put the E609 in front of the speaker, close up and you are done. The sound of the rig comes out front, not the mike (yes, I'm talking to you Mr. SM57). I put relatively high SPL into these knuckleheaded looking mics with no breakup. That's good.

    you can't polish a turd. If your tone blows this microphone will not cure it.

    Well made mic by a good company. Both of mine have about a hundred gigs on them and two recording sessions. No complaints.

    You will not break the bank on this mike and should be very happy with the results. I you are not satisfied, please keep the wonder whisk as our free gift.

    I used to dub a baffle.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I bought this micro rcemment complter for its decision that I was on my amp with a SM57. I had read good reviews here and so I wanted to try the exprience. I VERY dcu t; I tried lots of configurations to get good sound and I must say that we are far from the potential and the quality of an SM57. There is a ct Crunch EXAGRES and this, regardless of the position of the microphone in front of the membrane. So I bought a SM57 deuxime complter for my recordings and it is 100 times better!

    Wide dynamic microphone capsule

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it in the studio for 6 months, mainly for the sound of guitar amps, snare and toms.
    He gives her a wide trs, flattering the bottom mdium, dynamic, and organic prcis. Less electrical and more natural I think a sm57.
    Very practical in concert (no need to walk: Just hang in front of the HP, it Pipelines Limited for that).
    For me a must among others in a fleet of pickups.

    Dynamic microphone capsule mounted on the front .....
    Designed to dub guitar cabinets.

    OVERALL OPINION

    If you do the Rock / mtal is what I found best for transplanting a baffle.
    on the other hand in sound do not expect to get exactly the sound of your cabinet:

    It's ultra comprss and it does not transcribed all the shades ....
    But for rock or pchu mtal is exactly what it takes!

    I prfre in SM57 ... because I find it less aggressive (less acute) and heavier (more serious).

    Good dynamic look nice, has changed a little on scne ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it - there are some who will jump to the ceiling - to use the bombing of PA groups fest-noz. Although these are sharp instruments with harmonic standards, the fact that he is very aggressive fast ... to take an aggressive instrument with a microphone that accentuates it. Similarly, transient severe bombardment are important and Necessary for reproducing sound of a bomb: the 609 goes down well and does it well. Finally, the power of a bomb is standard, the 609 accepts high SPL without flinching.
    So I adopted him and I still use it!

    Now things have changed and I made a lot of expression since. However, I stay glued to this microphone. Even if its use is limited spectrum (electric guitar), the sound is neutral and will be returned with air and greater lack of grain that many competitors. It does not come forward and let the sound comes out of your guitar cabinet as it is. Note that it is also sensitive trs dynamics and does not crunch. If you want to put forward its own color, it will Galise in conscquence. It takes lgrement all sounds around him, so it is wise to use it on a set that sends a lot (and it can lower its sensitivity or to isolate attacks peripherals (using a cache for example). The microphone can be the same cab and scotch trs well dbrouiller. rsiste it well with water and fire. The purchase price is honnte.

    In making a comparison, the 57 sounds a bit dirty but bright and full of attack, the E609 is much more rich and low-mdium mdium, I think it goes down much more serious as the sound is cleaner, softer. It seems more linear than the sm57 which seems a bit nasal ct but the effect of proximity and may be a little worse for low gr trs quickly become invasive which is a common problem on 57.
    It is therefore trs complmentaire and diffrent of 57. At 57 I use the Submitted for everything solo, arpge, lightweight little riff and E609 for all that is rhythmic and application of the scale and precision throughout the spectrum, especially in the bass.
    I think it must be percu trs good on toms or congas type of batteries as well.
    It is not EMDU on vocals, m'enfin there are better, it works well trs to effect a "little dynamics could allo houston problem we have."

    The Sennheiser E 609 is a microphone specifically built with guitar amps and cabinets in mind. When the standard for mic'ing anything goes, "Just put a Shure SM57 on everything and EQ it to make it fit better later," it can understandably get a little obnoxious to do so repeatedly, and because the SM57 is a workhorse microphone, mic'ing up most things with the SM57 falls just ever so slightly short of perfectly ideal.

    Enter the Sennheiser E 609. It is a dynamic microphone with a supercardioid pickup pattern, so you can count on it picking up just what is in front of it. The Sennheiser E 609 boasts a comparatively impressive frequency response of 40-18,000 Hz, so you can count on it to pi…

    Enter the Sennheiser E 609. It is a dynamic microphone with a supercardioid pickup pattern, so you can count on it picking up just what is in front of it. The Sennheiser E 609 boasts a comparatively impressive frequency response of 40-18,000 Hz, so you can count on it to pick up a few more of the nuances of a guitar through an amp than the Shure SM57, which only goes up to 15,000 Hz.

    The microphone itself is unique in design, being very low profile, and side address. This makes it incredibly inconspicuous when using on stage or in the studio, and in the short time I had access to it, I found that having an E 609 in front of the guitar amp was more of a godsend than I thought. Its low profile makes sure that the E 609 never gets in the way, unlike the SM57 which will protrude from the amp. When working in cramp spaces, I can only imagine how much more secure one would feel.

    The sound itself is very impressive. The SM57 is by no means a bad guitar amp microphone, but comparatively to the Sennheiser E 609, it sounds downright hollow. You just have to imagine the SM57 sound, but richer, and at the same time, a bit crispier. The low mids pop out with a sizzle that I did not previously know the low mids could have.

    OVERALL OPINION

    For roughly the same price as an SM57, you can have a dedicated guitar amp microphone. It's not the workhorse that the 57 is, but if you're completely aware of what you want to mic things up with, you shouldn't have to worry about not having an ideal microphone anyway. If you desperately need a guitar amp microphone just to have a guitar amp microphone, this is a great choice over the vaunted SM57.

    Robust, can be hung on a guitar amp, so he is glued to the baffle.
    Plastic clamp a bit soft but sturdy and thick. It seems unbreakable.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I'm not a big fan of this mic on the guitar. Neither of SM57 elsewhere.
    Following is a history of gout, but I think I found my happiness in a combination of microphones. Sometimes I did some tests on percussion I think he is better in this application. But as I have a good park microphone available, it is sometimes alone in his corner!

    It has a beautiful medium low, it is fatter than a SM57. Not bad with distortion.
    Attention as usual, it is sensitive to placement, we can have good and bad.

    Ideal for electric guitars, and trumpets.

    OVERALL OPINION

    best in this microphone: no need to faithfully repequer pole to a guitar amp, its shape allows it to dangle before the Bafil (we will have made a second round with the XLR cable to turn the handle to the head or combo ).
    for Repik from scratch: there, I love it!

    excellent dynamic microphone.
    * Rugged metal body
    Internal Suspension * Advanced Design
    * Directivity Supercardioid
    * Compensating coil anti-snoring


    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it (4 years) exclusively for the resumption of my amp and timbre of the snare. But it can be very versatile ... also for brass instruments (trumpet and horn).
    I find it responds extremely well and accurately reproduces the original sound (my ears)! attention to the placement anyway!
    I could look at Shure SM57 Rode NT1 (guitar amp and snare) well but for the price does not happen at the ankle.

    For examples:

    I use the E609 for the guitar on rock, hardcore, pop, metal, and also in live in a home studio.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I purchased it new several years ago.
    I can look at SM57 traditional: it is easier to position because of its shape, and I think it gives a softer, rounder in the grave, I found the SM57 a bit garish. However, I think it is good to have both on hand, it can be adapted according to the sound of the guitar sound with.
    I would do without this choice problem, especially at 80 € hand.
