TUTORIAL: e 604 Drum Dynamic Microphone | Sennheiser


collapse expand iconDescription

The Sennheiser e 604 Dynamic Cardioid Instrument Microphone is optimized for drum sets, percussion and other high-volume applications. The e 604 can handle sound pressure levels exceeding 160dB with clarity and accuracy. Its cardioid polar pattern rejects unwanted noise and provides isolation. An integrated, pivoting mount attaches directly to mic stands or drum rims for efficient setup.

Withstands Extreme Volumes Without Distortion

The e 604's lightweight voice coil and reinforced fiberglass body are built to withstand the physical demands of close-miking drums and percussion. Its wide dynamic range and ability to handle high SPLs with minimal distortion result in a balanced, transparent signal comparable to high-end studio condenser microphones.

Attach and Position With Ease

An included drum rim clip and mic stand mount make placing and securing the e 604 simple. The pivoting mount offers flexibility in mic placement, allowing optimal positioning in relation to the sound source. Rugged and roadworthy, the e 604 delivers professional results gig after gig.

isolate the Sound You Want

With a tight cardioid pickup pattern, the e 604 rejects off-axis noise and ambient room sounds. Focus the mic on a single drum, the hi-hat or an entire drum set—the e 604's directional characteristics help capture the intended sound while minimizing bleed from other sources.

Roadworthy and Reliable

As a dynamic microphone, the e 604 requires no phantom power and has no internal components that could be damaged in high-moisture environments. Its rugged build quality has been engineered to withstand the rigors of live performance and touring. The e 604 delivers professional results gig after gig, providing years of faithful service.
