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 e609 SilverDynamic 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 e609 SilverDynamic 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 e609 SilverDynamic 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 e609 SilverDynamic 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 e609 SilverDynamic 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 e609 SilverDynamic 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 e609 SilverDynamic 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.
