PLAY AS YOU PAY
Close-mic your guitar amps and drums with the Sennheiser e609S Silver microphone, a revamped version of a Sennheiser favorite. Offering a re-engineered flat-profile capsule for clearer, punchier articulation, the e609S Silver is the kind of mic that can get its grille in your grille, and sit or hang extremely close to your guitar cabs, toms, and other instruments for in-your-face sound. It sports a supercardioid polar pattern for impressive sound isolation, with a wide frequency response and high SPL handling for low distortion during performances. Its sleek silver design is icing on the cake, throwing a bit of style to the live stage.

Superior Sound Isolation Meets Versatile Frequency Response

Your tone comes through loud and clear, in its truest form, when you use a mic like the e609S Silver. Its supercardioid polar pattern is a super choice for picking up sounds from the front of the mic while rejecting sounds from the sides and rear. What's more, the high-output dynamic microphone's wide frequency response of 40 Hz to 18 kHz provides reliable performance when tapping into your amp's sweet spot.

The e609S' hum-compensating coil reduces electrical interference, and a Neodymium ferrous magnet with boron keeps the microphone stable no matter where you put the e609S Silver to work -- mic your gear inside or outside without any noticeable change in performance.

Larger-Than-Life Guitar Sound

Sennheiser's e609S Silver microphone sports a flat-front capsule that can get up close and personal with your guitar cabinets, drums (especially toms), and more. Hang it in front of your amp's speaker and enjoy accurate, distortion-free reproduction of whatever your amp can output.

The mic's sleek silver address side is visible in any lighting situation, so you can easily position it on dark stages.

Features:

- Dynamic supercardioid microphone ideal for use on guitars, guitar cabinets, drums, and more
- Supercardioid pickup pattern provides superior isolation from off-axis sound sources
- Frequency response of 40 Hz to 18 kHz
- High SPL handling without distortion
- Hum-compensating coil reduces electrical interference
- Neodymium ferrous magnet with boron keeps the mic stable regardless of climate
- Rugged metal construction for years of use and abuse

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (19 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
Written by one of our gear experts! "Great mic, mediocre accessories."
Sound: Great presence, very punchy, aggressive. I like it a heck of a lot more than a 57. Haven't used it live yet but it's great for recording dry tracks. Tends to pick up 10 and 12 inch speakers better than 15s. Get a windscreen and try it on vocals with an extra room mic for that Albini-esque sound... Feature: The mic seems tough enough. It's really compact, I might try using it to mic up some drums. The bag is okay, the clip is useless. It doesn't fit the stem of the mic at all, barely fits over the XLR jack on the cable. I'm just using it draped over the cab instead. Ease of Use: It's a mic, point it at the thing you want to pick up, pretty easy. All depends on your ear and experience in the studio I guess. Quality: Probably not bomb proof like a 57 but I don't think I'll be taking this one on the road with me. I could see it surviving a few rough nights at The Mutiny, maybe. Value: Same price as a 57 but smaller, lighter and less noisy. Manufacturer Support: Haven't had to deal with the manufacturer yet. Probably won't need to unless I do something stupid to it. The Wow Factor: Not as sleek looking or feature rich as the e906 but I don't really need selectable filters on a dynamic mic, that's what EQ is for. Overall: I'm a junkie for gear so I'm always looking for something new and different. This mic will probably be used on everything I record until it stops working. In which case, I'll probably buy another or try out the 906. It's always a good idea to keep a stable of mics at the ready. Definitely recommend giving this one a shot.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great Bang For Your Buck!"
Sound: I am a live sound engineer, and recently added this to my microphone rig. This product can handle a wide array of musical styles. I have used this for Blues, Rock, Punk, Surf Rock and everything else you can imagine. I think the sound quality of this is much better than an SM57. High gain before feedback is awesome too! Feature: The Most useful feature of this mic is that it eliminates the need for a stand on stage. If you are tight on space, than this mic is for you. Hang it through the handle of an amp, and place a small piece of tape on your XLR cord, and you are good to go. The components of the mic seem to feel a little cheap. It is extremely light compared to an sm57. That does not mean that this wont hold up. Just make sure you don't have people throwing it around, and what not. Ease of Use: Very easy to get good guitar sounds out of this mic. The response is right where you need it, and it is tailor made for guitar sounds. Quality: The product seems to feel lighter than I expected, but I baby my mics, so that's just me. Value: Yes! Manufacturer Support: Never had to deal with the company as of yet. Overall: This microphone is awesome! Compared to the Sm57 it beats it hands down. The design eliminates the use for a microphone stand, which is good cause I have a small stage, and the less clutter I have, the better. I was on the fence about getting this microphone or a SM57 or an Audix i5. I am glad I went with this, I will be purchasing another one soon!

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.
