I spent a lot of time today on my cello quest. In the end, I picked the SM57, and the Sennheiser e906 (mainly because I'd been using 3 of them for a Queen Tribute - and they did quite well on AC30 amps. I went with the AKG 414 and the U87.
thoughts on them?
i work for a music retailer and can get great deals on 609 and 906 mics, but for a 409 i'd have to hit ebay just like everyone else.
compare and contrast sound coloration for these mics please. anyone?
I've won a $1,000 gift certificate in a George's Music contest and want to possibly get another mic for guitar cabinets. Can someone compare the Sennheiser e906 and 609 to a 57 for me? I would like a description of the sonic difference and if someone had a A/B soundclip of the two that would help as well.
Personal opinions/experience are also great. thanks
I received my Sennheiser e906 today and I must admit that i am surprised at how cheap it feels. I have not had a chance to use it and I am fairly sure I will be satifsied with the sound, but It will never go near a drummer as is recommended in the manual. If you are rough with equipment this might not be the mic for you. I just dont think the plastic used on the mic would stand up to much.
