Summary: Hands down my favorite kick mic. It's got punch, snap, and bump without the 200hz - 250hz mud of a Beta 52. It reminds me of a D6 with more body. Everybody's got their thing, this is definitely mine.
Summary: Can't say enough about the quality and ruggedness of this microphone. I love the fact you can just hang the mic over the top of the amp. No loss of tone. In fact, with the 3 position switch on the mic, you can shape the sound you're looking for.
Summary: The Sennheiser e906 is a very compact and versatile mic that gives other dynamic mics a good run for their money. The e906 has been designed for use with guitar cabs and other close micing situations. The side address of the mic makes it very compact. The e906 has a similar tone to the SM57, no doubt this being its intention, however there is slightly less of a boost in the upper mids.
Summary: Great Mic, absolutely superb on Guitar Amps and Drums, but i have recorded Soprano Sax with it along wit other mics. Very useful mic, i keep one with my guitar equipment to guarantee my guitar tone live and it has never once failed on me. Strong construction (almost unbreakable) great sound and a 3 position eq switch make it a very versatile mic, in most situations were i would use a sm57 this sounds better and it's easier to position due to the side address capsule...
Summary: I love these mics. For guitar, it's great and also works nicely on toms and snares. Never tried vocals however. For the money, nothing bad to say at all. I much prefer it to the 609 which surprised me as I thought it was basically the same with the 3 position switch, but it just seems to sound better to me. Recommended.
Summary: another really great mic for electric guitar cabs, just set it and forget it. most of the time I just sling it over the front of the cab like I would live. that's it. done. although not as sonically interesting as the heil pr40, this mic is a solid goto to guitar cabs and I almost always have one in the mix.
Summary: The Sennheiser e906 is an affordable, supercardioid dynamic microphone tracing its ancestry back to the legendary, and now pricey, MD409. This compact, almost laughably shaped, microphone is deceptive--much like its forebearers and spin-offs there's a lot of sonic potential waiting to be unleashed. Feature-wise the e906 has a three position switch to affect presence, which can be boosted, cut or left neutral. The e906 handles transients and SPL without difficulty.
Summary: I had the opportunity to try the Sennheiser e906, Telefunken M80, Sennheiser MD421 and AKG C 414 XLS. In addition I have a modded U87ai and M149. Of all the mics above I preferred the Sennheiser e906 on my particular guitar cabinet (Blackstar HT5) and guitar (vigier excalibur). To my ears it sounded the least processed and most natural. It would be nice if it had lowcut filter.
