Its laterally mounted capsule can get extremely close to the speaker while the supercardioid pattern provides isolation from other signals.

First off, this mic has a great design. I love the look and vibe of it. However, the sound is just not for me. I was looking to pair something up with my modified SM57, the E609 is in my price range, and I adore Sennheiser headphones as they have a very accurate midrange. I thought this mic was sure to be a winner. When I got it home, and started laying down some tracks to compare it to my mod SM57, the 57 was fatter & warmer. The E609 has this airy top end that I just could not get used to, especially on distorted guitars. It made it difficult to fit it into a mix as the top end occupied some of the cymbal space. I ended up having to roll off top end, and I would rather not EQ electric guitars. I am sure the mic would be awesome for Snare and Toms, but I've already got my favorites for those. I tried to get into the E609 for a couple of weeks, but ended up returning it for a different mic.

Rivals the Sm57

By matt1

from New Jersey

Comments about Sennheiser e 609 Silver Dynamic Guitar Microphone:

This microphone gives the SM57 a run for its money and in some cases is better than it. I love using this for my guitar amp recording. It always picks up the sound beautifully and you can lay it right on the grill and get a great sound. I also use it for a kick drum mic and it performs great also. Works well with a snare and other drums. I completely recommend this if you want an alternative for the sm57 because this is awesome.

Great Mic

By Andrewvox

from Tampa, FL

Comments about Sennheiser e 609 Silver Dynamic Guitar Microphone:

This mic is what I use to mic my Vox half stack. It works great, just put it near a speaker, and it works perfectly. The sound is perfect, and it is an amazing deal for the money. I'd highly recommend it to anyone miking a guitar amp.

All Around Mic

By phil777

from Stafford, Virginia

Comments about Sennheiser e 609 Silver Dynamic Guitar Microphone:

This mic is great for almost anything. I wasn't satisfied with an SM58 for vocal recording, so I tried this on the vocal stand, and it is the clearest vocal mic I have heard in my life. Also great for picking up the kick drum, excellent for guitar mic'ing. If You're looking for a new mic for the studio, this is your best choice hands down!

MIC TEST!

By J-dizzle

from Winter Park, FL

Comments about Sennheiser e 609 Silver Dynamic Guitar Microphone:

i am a student at Full Sail University and today in class we had a guitar re-amped in a million $+ studio with a 9098i console off of a studer tape machine into a marshall JCM 2000. we recorded the exact same track's rhythm guitar through this mic, a sm57, an AKG 414 and a seinheiser 421. as far as rhythm guitar goes, this blew ALL the other mics out of the water. it was chunky and had all the beef one could want. now for leads it didnt live up as well as some others, but for rhythm guitar....im buying this over any of the mics we used. it is great for building your arsenal of mics for creating that sound you want.

Comments about Sennheiser e 609 Silver Dynamic Guitar Microphone:

I just bought the mic today because my PG57 obviously wasnt getting the job done. Well it was, but not up to the stature I wanted. This microphone is incredible. Its cheap and sounds absolutly great. I was blown away by the much clearer sound I had once I began recording. If your looking for a clearing sound whether its heavy distortion or acustic this should be in your possibility list. And if your boke like me then it should be at the top!

      Comments about Sennheiser e 609 Silver Dynamic Guitar Microphone:

      I'm a full-time professional guitarist and most contracted sound companies already have this microphone for guitar - I bought mine for the times when I run into the few that don't. My reasoning is that I spend all this $$$ on great-sounding gear, but the sound company is using a Radio Shack Realistic mic draped over my amp, pointing straight down and not at the speaker. So what's the point of having all this great tone if the audience doesn't get to hear it...???

      E609

      By BoogieBoyD

      from Mesa, Az

      Comments about Sennheiser e 609 Silver Dynamic Guitar Microphone:

      This is a great mic for live and recording. I have owned it for a year. It captures my tone very accurately. One of the best parts about this mic (in my opinion) is that it is very sesitive to where you position it infront of the speaker. It is built very rugidly making it great for touring. I recemend this mic to anyone who is looking for a great mic for micing cabs.

      I have bought this mic for a fairly large church. I use this mic for the Hammond B-3 at my church and it sounds awesome. It picks up everything with clearity. I recommend this mic for an organ or keyboard player out there.

      This mic is great for recording electric guitars . The sound is more complete because of the larger diaphram and very affordable great mic what more can u ask for. Great for Heavy Metal music.

      the new 57

      By billy EL34 lover

      from appleton wisconsin

      Comments about Sennheiser e 609 Silver Dynamic Guitar Microphone:

      I bought this e609 about 2 months ago and have been using it live constantly ever since. I use it to mike a Marshall 1960 cab with a carvin master tube head. It is awesome at very close range to the speaker,(never breaks up or distorts). I love it more than my sm57 which I have used forever. The best thing for me is that you simply drape it over your cabinet and place it easily in any position in front of the cone due to its shape. You almost always get perfect sound with the silver side addressing the cab.

      Not just for cabs

      By Sam R

      from Denver

      Comments about Sennheiser e 609 Silver Dynamic Guitar Microphone:

      What's not to like? It has the frequency response of an SM57 with a larger sweet spot and higher SPL capability. Works great for accordion, and well for acoustic guitar and banjo. Not so good for viola or violin, though; as with the SM57, the "presence peak" makes them too shrill. If you're used to the SM57, you'll have no problem working with this mic--though you will have to increase your preamp gain a little. The mic clip that comes with it sucks, though; it's so tight that I have to plug a cord into the mic and slide it up the cord and over the plug onto the mic.

      I've finally found a mic that reproduces the natural sound of my amp.(mesa boogie markIII)My 57's always been pretty good to me but this thing just takes it over the edge. I get that warm fuzzy feeling during playback. Very very worth the money!

      Bye Bye 57

      By Paulyfiddle

      from Manchester, NH

      Comments about Sennheiser e 609 Silver Dynamic Guitar Microphone:

      I purchased this mic about a week ago and tried it out on a gig and I have to tell you, my band said using this mic, it made them feel like I was right next to them. After equalizing the room, I eq'd the guitar amp through the sound system. I couldn't believe how full the guitar sounded through a small Peavey Bandit 112. I got all the sound I needed, and the larger area on the mic makes it easy to position it on the speaker to get various tones. I just drape over the grill cloth and to one side. I recommend this mic for anyone who plays live. See ya' later SM57.

      tops the '57

      By Neil

      from Cincinnati, OH

      Comments about Sennheiser e 609 Silver Dynamic Guitar Microphone:

      i've been using the mic for recording and some live. The mic is designed perfect for guitar cabs. If your looking for a mic just to mic guitar cabs this is the way to go over the '57. if your looking for a mic that you can use to mic guitar cabs and use as a snare mic, etc., i'd go with a '57. This is one of most transparent (if you but a bad sounding amp in you'll get a bad sound out, if you out a good sonund in you'll get a good sound out) mics i've ever used. In the studio, the design where it only picks up the sound on one side is great. allows those with home studios and one room to stay in the room and not worry about your natural guitar being picked up over the amp. highly suggest this mic for anybody.

      Absolutely Amazing... Should be worth 100's more

      By Tom

      from Boston, MA

      Comments about Sennheiser e 609 Silver Dynamic Guitar Microphone:

      Finally after waiting a month to get this, I bought it at GC yesterday. I didn't really know expect out of it till i tried it out. Only complaint i had, was the clip it came with didn't really fit on the mic, and it didn't even fit on my boom stand. Long story short i found a clip made it work and was completely amazed with what i was getting. I knew that running the mic through the PA would make my guitar louder but jeez it was not just loud, it was insanely clear. It basically doubled my wattage and my amp was only on 3. At shows I cannot wait to use this because its just going to be absolutely insane.

      Has never failed.

      By Bill See

      from Catoosa OK

      Comments about Sennheiser e 609 Silver Dynamic Guitar Microphone:

      Our band uses the E609 to mic the lead guitarist's amp. Even in the midst of the noise of the band this mic never feeds back and is crystal clear. There are more expensive mics but it would be hard to imagine one working any better. We place it about 2 inches away from the cloth over the speaker and about 3 inches away from the center of the cone.

      Amazing

      By Dylan Waldner

      from Sioux Falls, SD

      Comments about Sennheiser e 609 Silver Dynamic Guitar Microphone:

      I've been searching for a great cabinet mic for a long while now. The Sennheiser e 609 SilverDynamic Guitar Microphone offers a great modern tone a lot of guitarists are looking for. If you're looking for a more classic rock tone I'd go more for the Sm-57. Like me however, a more modern tone will be without effort brought out with the Sennheiser e 609 SilverDynamic Guitar Microphone.
