Sennheiser E604 dynamic instrument microphone
Sennheiser's E 604 is a popular and versatile dynamic microphone. It is often used as a drum mic for toms and snares. Thanks to the practical clip-on holder you can attach the mic to the rim in seconds for optimal positioning. The Sennheiser E 604 is not just great for drums, but also for recording brass and woodwind instruments. Thanks to its maximum sound pressure level of no less than 160 dB, the E 604 can record it all without any distortion.
The sound of the E 604
The sound of the Sennheiser E 604 is based on the legendary MD 421 microphone. The E 604 has a frequency range of 40 to 18,000 Hz with a small peak in the mid-high and high frequencies. As such, it offers a powerful, open and clear sound. Because the E 604 can be placed near the drum head and has a cardioid recording pattern, feedback is not an issue. Vibrations are eliminated, thanks to the integrated shock mount.
