Very SolidSolid sound, solid construction. Amazing kick mic even with out EQ. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a tight low end with out that hyped type of sound. Well worth the money!

THIS MIKE ROCKS AND/OR ROLLSAs a PA system tech, I have the opportunity to read up on and at times experiment with new gear for our house band. I orriginally ordered the kick pack compilation with the intent of only utilizing the stand for the existing D112. The drummer and I (having used the D112 for years) were slightly reluctant to using the Sennheiser. However, after one night of playing, we were both sold on it's response, tone, and especially it's consistency in sound reproduction at different dynamic levels.

Great sounding mic for bad sounding kickThis mic will make any cardboard box sound like a rock kick drum. But be careful, because if you put this on a great sounding kick, you will probably be taking that drum, and the drummer, down a notch or two. This mic compliments modern tuned PA systems and will lie to you by letting you think you know how to get a good sound. So if you don't want to use your ears and talent, this mic will give you a slightly above average, generic sound that most people want to hear.

e602 Kick Drum MicI really like the sound of the e602. It is very comparable to a d112, and a 52. Different, but equal performance. The main difference that I have found in the e602 is that the low end response is very omnidirectional when compared to a d112. I have been pointing it down say, 90 degrees off axis to the batter head, and it gives an amazing and punchy low end sound. (no click though), so I use two mics (a beta 91 or even a 57 will work).

Thumbs Up!!!Recently we had a recording session coming up. I needed to buy more cool stuff from Sweetwater (isn't THAT fun?!). Cool stuff inclued new microphones for each band member. At the advice of my sales-dude extraordinaire (Delvin Wolfe x1378) he recommended this Sennheiser e602 for the kick drum. I record on a Roland 2480cd (also a beauty) and let me tell you, the kick drum never sounded so good on playback.
This mike rocks. Not only does it have great accoustic qualities but it looks cool too. Our drummer thought it was cool....the whole band thought it sounded great and I got the thing for a fair price.
Sweetwater has never steered me wrong on advice for proper equipment selection and this is just another example of sales staff that know what they are talking about and don't just sell you stuff to sell you stuff. Delvin, you rock too, dude! But I digress.
So you need a good kick drum mike? Buy this one; you wont be disappointed. This mike rocks and so does Sweeetwater!
