MGR/daveb's review"Sennheiser E609"

Sennheiser e 609
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 use the E609 for the guitar on rock, hardcore, pop, metal, and also in live in a home studio.


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.

Sennheiser e 609
transplanted for the first guitar. what I want is the return before any of my sound, so it necessarily passes by a very good mic


no, I've never tested other micro front, a peculiarity little strange is the way with a front and back. value for money well if I would do the same choice, no, I think I change category to climb a little higher as

sixcordes76's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Top!"

Sennheiser e 609
Dynamic microphone for guitar amps, I have not used for anything else.


3 years of proud service.
I had before that good old SM57, but the record I like the 609 much more, ie more accurate, better response in the lower spectrum.
240 nine parrait me too hard, looking at a site USA for example ...
Micro robust, which does not need no mic stand, with experience, and if I ever let go one day, I rachèretais one without thinking!
I put 8 / 10 for 240 ... is not kidding either!

Sennheiser e 609
See datasheet


This mic is perfect to use an electric guitar and amp. Ideal for a rhythm guitar, it is very easy to place (move the cable in the strap of the amp) and do not require a microphone stand. We quickly forget it's there, it was the sound coming from the amp directly to the console.

Small, quiet, very reliable, I prefer the SM57 for his sound, that presence and neutrality. Try also brass but I've never done!

Sennheiser e 609
Dynamic microphone, especially helpful before a guitar amp or bass. Also used on the toms mediums.


I use it for 8 years (still).
His glorious ancestor had much in session.
He never let me down but it remains fairly typical, less versatile than a SM57 for example, which makes it an excellent complement.

Very good value for money is of reinforced concrete.

With experience, I would do this election, probably by buying his successor.

Fmarine's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Very good dynamic guitar, drums or brass"

Sennheiser e 609
A very good dynamic microphone for close miking of wind instruments, bass drum (drums), recovery of electric guitar amp ...


One of my favorite mics for this type of exercise. Cash very large pressures without flinching!

Sennheiser e 609
excellent dynamic microphone.
* Rugged metal body
Internal Suspension * Advanced Design
* Directivity Supercardioid
* Compensating coil anti-snoring


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.

RaphRaymond's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Sennheiser e 609
Dynamic Microphone Designed for supercardiode transplanted guitar amp, but that can be used stuff mdium rich and low-mdium.
Note the hyper ct practice for the design of microphone that allows it to hang in front of the guitar cabinet for the transplant is an economy of a microphone stand and especially place!


I compare it to that j'utlise sm57 a long time. This E609 me more each time I put him sondier front of my amp, whereas with a 57 half the time I had a screaming his trs. I am buying a history know him a little better and actually it's a big slap.
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."

Sennheiser e 609
Dynamic microphone (reissue of MD409)
I use it for the taking of guitar amplifiers.


I use 409 (older) and 609, for 5 years.
What I like: one more round sm57 (for guitars) and the fact of let it hang in front of a cabinet (no need to walk). If we want to make it more crunchy (like 57), Eq a little work and there seems more. Furthermore, very strong.
Micro bit expensive, so benefit, even if I did not find multiple uses.
For a resumption of guitar speaker, it works well.
