"Live Guitar Cab Mic"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Ordered two of these dudes when they went on sale for 57 prices and I'm glad I did. Side address, 3 different voicings (dark, neutral, bright), throw it over the cab so it hangs in front of the speaker center-ish and good to go. Used it for a couple shows and it outshines the 57 for my purposes by far.

Sound
It sounds great without being picky about placement. Plenty hot enough for being on or near the edge for darker tones. It's a hot signal and a little brighter at all settings by nature, or better yet, loud and clear no matter what assuming you didn't completely miss the cone opening!

Features
Smaller than it looks, lightweight, comes with clip and carry bag. There's a noticable difference in the tone/voice selections but not so much I would really notice in a live setting nor would it matter because it would sound awesome still.

Ease of Use
Plug it in, select a tone. Stand or no stand. If this isn't easy I don't know what is.

Quality
Metal grill on both sides, plastic handle...thing. It's small and light enough to survive drops. Cables and the clip are both very snug and solid, almost to snug but better than not enough.

Value
At almost twice the price of a 57, you get what you pay for. Flexibility and efficiency if you set up and tear down regualarly. Saves space on stage and keeps me off stage fixing stands that read more have been kicked. It feels solid for something so light, really light compared to a 57. My uses have been exclusively OD/HighGain rock so I can't speak on it's versaitily for genres but for a general purpose something different than "it just works", it's the way to go!

Manufacturer Support
Probably won't ever need it but Sennheiser has a great reputation so no fear.

The Wow Factor
Couldn't be happier with the clarity I'm getting, letting the guitars cut through that much more. The ease of deployment. I'm so happy with these I'm considering keeping them safe with me and getting e609's to take the road abuse lol I'm confident they'll be within 20% of the sound, build, and quality of these.
