Drum Mics Compared: Sennheiser e604 vs. e904

Both are quality drum mics from Sennheiser's Evolution series. The Sennheiser e904 features all-metal construction, while the e604 is a fiberglass composite with a stainless steel grille. Though the e904 is a bit heavier due to its metal construction, it's physically a bit smaller and therefore easier to place on drums. The metal body makes the mic sturdier and more robust, so it's better able to withstand wayward drumsticks! The e904 features gold XLR pins. Sonically, you'll find the that e904 will yield and extra 3 to 6 dB more gain before feedback, compared to the e604, and the e904 tends to have more attack and snap than the e604.

Sennheiser is known for their quality microphones and this one is no exception. Has a great build and very solid. The mounting hardware makes it easy to place this very compact 904 in the right place and out of harm's way. The sound is natural and uncolored leaving you the freedom to sculpt it anyway you want. It reproduces what the drum sounds like perfectly and that works for me. I use them on the drum kit but it would work on percusion, horns and guitar cabinets equally well. Excellent mic for the money and worth getting over the 604 IMO. The build quality of the 904 alone. I own 3 and looking into another 2 to use on percussion. Have 906's and 609's for the guitar cabinets. You cannot go wrong with the 904 in your microphone locker.
