Awesome Microphone on an SVT810! WOW!!!

I bought the 602 II almost a year ago and finally got around to seriously using it today. Running it through a Tascam UH7000 into my laptop (running REAPER). I had to mike up my bass rig (MXR M81 Bass Preamp, SWR Stereo 800, Ampeg SVT810E). The first thing I noticed when getting levels was that placing this mike is super easy- you can clearly hear sonic changes as you move it across the front of the speaker cone. This mike really makes it easy to get the instrument (bass rig, in my case) to sit in the mix. I needed to capture what I call my ultimate "Lost Child of Doug Pinnick and John Entwhistle Tone" (courtesy of a DIY Compressor driving a Boss OC-2, into a guitarPCB Guitar/Bass Driver DIY, and finally into the above gear), and this mike easily gave the track the heft, punch, presence and edge that makes this kind of tone come alive. I'm sure that this thing is a great mike for the kick, but if you need a seriously Neve-like bottom end for recording a bass rig, this is an awesome go to!! BTW, shouts out to Justin Rix for helping the transaction go smoothly (and for the lastest additions as well!). The crew at Sweetwater are what true customer service is all about!

Thee best kick drum mic on the market!

This mic sounds HUGE. It has such a pure and natural tone to it that can probably make any kick drum sound great. The low end is massive and really doesn't need any EQ, if so, very little. Thanks Sweetwater, and thanks Sennheiser for making quality products.

Not just for kick drums

Finally got a chance to mic up my bass cabinet with this mic. Wow. I had my 1974 bassman 50 pushing 2 Weber bass15 speakers and this mic running through a Heritage audio '73jr into the preamp bypass of my Audient ID22. Previously I have been using a DI into the '73 jr and using amp emulators. That was a good method, but with this mic I have a next level sound. My old DI recordings sound thin in comparison. Now they sound like a bass ought to. Huge and Vibrant, with a greater sense of space and musicality and realism. I may be ahead of you with my gear collection, but this mic is the real deal for recording bass cabinets and may be a good place to start...

Very Solid

Solid 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!
