PLAY AS YOU PAY
Your durable Sennheiser e604 Evolution dynamic cardioid mic is optimized to capture the high-decibel hits of your snare drum and rack toms. With a wide frequency response of 40 Hz to 18 kHz, an insanely high maximum SPL of 160 dB, a secure shock mount to reduce handling noise, a cardioid polar pattern for serious bleed reduction, output impedance of 350 ohms, and incredibly low weight of only .13 pounds, this tiny, non-invasive captor of tone will deliver the goods with every drum hit.

Small, Almost Invisible Presence

Small and noninvasive, this little workhorse of a mic does its job without ever getting in the way. Drumming is a full-contact sport, and the last thing any drummer wants is a bunch of microphones stacked all around and over each drum head. You won't get all up in your drummer's personal space when you clip a couple of these on your snare and tom heads. It'll seem like it's not even there during your session.

Wide Frequency Response and Amazing SPL Handling

Your e604 harnesses a lot of strength and durability, which is perfect for the high decibel level produced by hitting drum heads. An amazingly high maximum SPL of 160 dB means that you'll be able to hit your snare and toms as hard as you want without dealing with any distortion. This little mic also has a wide frequency response of 40 Hz to 18 kHz, so each hit will contain a big, full-bodied sound.

Advanced Shock Mounting for Smoother Capture

The physicality of hitting a drum set requires the necessity of using microphones that can handle the substantial intensity that comes with the territory. Your Sennheiser e604 Evolution dynamic cardioid mic comes with an advanced shock mounting system that holds your mic securely to your drums while providing flexibility and superior shock absorption. You can always count on a consistent and pristine capture with every hit. Plus, fewer stands to get in the way of the drums and the drummer.

Dynamic Microphone with Cardioid Polar Pattern

Being a dynamic mic with a cardioid polar pattern, this little tool is very directional. You don't have to worry too much about bleed from hitting your other heads or cymbals during your recording session. This makes gating a breeze during mixing, so you can get a nice, modern, and consistently clean capture.

- Frequency response of 40 Hz to 18 kHz

- Noninvasive -- weighs only .13 pounds
- Connects via XLR

Product Description

The frequency response and cardioid pickup pattern are optimised for drum sets and other percussion instrument miking, while also producing exceptional results on all forms of brass and woodwind. An integral stand mount screws directly onto mic stands and included clip attaches mic to rim of drum.

Very high sound pressure level handling, in excess of 160dB, is combined with a balanced, clear, low distortion signal similar to a high-end studio condenser microphone. Lightweight voice coil provides extended high frequency and rapid transient response. A tough, reinforced glass fibre body takes the knocks and shocks and suppresses impact noise.

Now includes a 10-year warranty!

Sennheiser e604 Mic Customer Review
Quality: I use these mics all the time for toms. they are very easy to fit on most drum kits. not needing a stand or a clunky drum claw really makes them a breeze to use. the only issue is if the get wacked by an overzealous drummer, the capsule can come out of the shell. there really isn't a whole lot you can do besides tape or glue them back in. i'll buy more though.

Sennheiser e604 Mic Customer Review
Sound: Great sound on toms, bottom of snare (with a 57 on top) and on guitar amps it works a treat too Feature: Clips are great, and reduce the over all price by negating the need to buy stands Ease of Use: Clip it on and go, very little EQ needed Quality: 904 seems to have a better build quality, but IMO 604s have a nicer sound Value: For under AU$400 for 3 and with out the need to buy stands, these things rock Manufacturer Support: never needed, can't say The Wow Factor: Bang for buck the best tom/guitar mic I've used Overall: Great tone, a little hardier construction would be nice though

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
