The Importance of a Present Low End
No matter what genre of music you're into, when it comes to performing or recording, no one can deny the essential nature of staying in the pocket. This role is usually handled by the drummer or the bass player. Having a powerful presence of bass and kick cutting through the mix means that not only will the other performers on stage lock in tightly, but the audience with be there with the group every beat of the song. If you're recording, then the Sennheiser e902 will do your kick or bass justice by keeping the low end consistently sounding big and full of body -- without too much poofiness.
Great for Kick Drum and Bass -- And Easy to Place
Your Sennheiser e902 works well for a decent collection of low-end instruments, including kick drum, bass guitar, tuba, and other instruments as well. A wide frequency response of 20 Hz to 18 kHz means that you'll never miss anything necessary to get a powerful and well-articulated capture. For bass, simply set your e902 in the sweet spot of your amp's speaker, about a thumb's distance away from the amp's grill. For kick, stick it right in the center of the hole. You can adjust how far to place this baby inside the kick drum based on how it sounds in the mix.
