From Our Research Team:
Tonal Character For Guitar Amps!Building on the performance and popularity of the Evolution 609 and legendary MD 409 dynamic microphones, Sennheiser has re-engineered the e609's capsule for a punchier sound with more clarity to better capture the raw energy of guitar amps and loud brass instruments. Musicians and engineers flocked to the e609 due to its distinctive side-address design, supercardioid pickup pattern and famous low-mid growl. The tonal character has been tailored to more closely match that of the original MD 409 and cosmetically the new mic will be identified by the silver front grille, which will also help to orient the microphone correctly, even in dim stage lighting. The frequency response of the e609 Silver is 40Hz to 18kHz; sensitivity is 1.5mV/Pa; and nominal impedance is 350 Ohms.
The physical construction and side-address configuration of the e609 is identical to its predecessors in that placement remains exactly the same. Simply hang it in front of the amp's speaker and it will faithfully pickup any sound the amp can dish out.

Much Better Than I Expected

I hignly recommend you to give this mic a try. I think you will be quite pleased with the results. I may have to add one or two more to my mic box. close [-]
by Stephen from MichiganWhat a great mic! I use these to mic steel pans from above on a very loud stage. Previously used 57's or 58's placed below. All of our FOH engineers are absolutely blown away by the difference. Less b... read more [+]leed, warmer sound, no feedback issues...you name it.

Where squares fit into circles.
by Kevin from Knoxville, TNIncredible clean sounding microphones tuned perfectly for guitars. The mics are idiot proof and a no brainer. Stickem' on a stand or drape it over the cab, can't go wrong. Sounds great when you put on... read more [+]e on the front of the cab and another behind the speaker, just don't forget to flip that phase or you'll be like, "Huh?, that can't be right." Great for horns and trumpets too! This mic will remind you why sm57's are only a standard but not a must have. If you have some extra moolah, add a couple of these puppies to your rig. close [-]
