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...

Great for toms too

I use them on toms when I want some rock beef ..I have 421's too but I end up using the 602's more for rock .. For faster tempo songs I like it better than my B52 on Kick

Awesome Kick Mic!

What is there to say? It's one of the industry standard kick mics. Sounds great and has plenty of punch.

No fuss low end.

We've tried many mics on bass drums. The e602 II simply sounds the best right out of the box. We use very slight compression and no EQ, and the sound sits perfectly in the mix.

The best kick microphone, period.

I use it live, and have experience with all the leading models available.Beta 52 - great low end, but tubby. However, killer combo with Beta91a.D112 - sounds like cardboard box. I run out of EQ with this one with some kicks.D6 - fantastic as a single mic. Owned and loved.602 II - bigger low end than D6, better with closed jazzy kicks as well, more broadband high frequency pickup - you can select where to boost. It's an upgraded D6 as I see it.You can now get away with starting your sound check with channel 2 if you're in a rush.There's still some 250-300Hz you would sometimes want to clean slightly, however miles away than most mics.
