Sennheiser e604 Dynamic Microphone
The Sennheiser e604 evolution Drum Mic handles very high SPLs, and has a clear, balanced, low-distortion signal similar to high-end studio condenser mics.
The e604 response and cardioid pattern are optimized for use on drum sets, while also producing exceptional results on brass and woodwinds. Lightweight voice coil provides extended high frequency and rapid transient response. The clip on drum microphone is made from a tough reinforced glass-fiber body that takes knocks, shocks, and suppresses impact noise. Now includes a 10-year warranty!

What We Think - Sennheiser e604 Review
The Sennheiser E604 is one of my favorites, and I regularly use it in my sessions. Though it is primarily designed as tom mic, I really like it on snare. And well this is a very surprising mic on guitar cab, it has a really smooth response to it, which I love. I personally think of this as the 421's little brother. It has a similar sound, but a little less bottom end. Great for snare, mounted toms, and guitar cab. You might as well grab a three pack, you'll want like them that much.

I've been using the e604's as my go-to mic for toms for many years now. They also make an outstanding snare mic, with a lot of crack to poke through in a mix. They're very small, so they're easy to position in tight spaces without getting in the way. My only complaint is that the included clips don't work with most RIMS-type suspension tom mounts, so if your drums are so equipped, you'll need to buy some different clip, or mount the mics on a stand.
