Sennheiser e609 Silver Dynamic Supercardioid Microphone

Able to withstand high SPLs without distorting, the Sennheiser e609 Silver's flat-profile capsule facilitates extremely close miking of guitar cabinets and is also suitable for drum miking, particularly toms.

The Sennheiser e609 Silver is based on the legendary MD 409 microphone. The e609 Silver's super-cardioid design improves isolation in live sound reinforcement and recording applications while its increased output and wider frequency response improves performance. Its sound inlet basket, made of refined steel, is distinguished by a unique silver address side.

What We Think - Sennheiser e609 Silver Review

"The e609 Silver is a great microphone for use with guitar amplifiers and even percussion instruments. Though it's not as full bodied as it's big brother, the e906, the e609 is perfect for rhythm guitars that don't need to be as big in the mix. It's also good for taming very woofy cabinets or tones when you have a guitarist who won't roll back their bottom end; you know that guy! All in all it's a great way to get the element right up against the grille and isolate the guitar from that noisy drum kit right next to it."

Well worth it November 1, 2011
Reviewer: Jonathan Malugin from TN United States  
I have used many different brands of mics to mic my guitar into the board, this one sounds better than all the rest, Well worth it. At the front of the house it really sounds like the guitar cab, others cant do that?

Outstanding mic for electric guitar June 2, 2011
Reviewer: Silent Sky from Northeast Arkansas, US  
I had used another mic for recording electric guitar for many years, but wanted a slightly different flavor, which I've found in the e609. This mic is great for distorted guitars (especially metal), but also does great on clean electric guitar as well. It's unique design allows you hang it from the top of the amp by the cable, or stand-mount it very closely to the amp without the mic or cable sticking out and getting in the way. My only complaint is that the included stand clip is almost too small for the mic and requires a bit of coersion to get the mic into it, but that's no big deal.
