        This is a sensitive, durable mic with an awesome sound! It is compact and lightweight and the clip makes set up simple and quick! It definitely lives up to the Senheiser reputation.

        Good - as far as I can see.

        By hoovie87

        from Florida

        Comments about Sennheiser E604 Evolution Dynamic Tom and Snare Drum Microphone:

        I use four of these every week on 4 toms. They tend to have a bit of proximity effect. You have to watch the 100-150Hz on these mics. I usually have to EQ that down to keep the toms from sounding like torpedos. It extends low enough for our large floor tom (tom 4). It's enough to kick the subs a little on the floor toms. They're a but flat sounding I think. You have to add some high end in suitable for your mix. Even just by itself, your going to have to boost up your attack area for the click. So, really just that 100-150Hz range, and the click are the problem areas for me. They are pretty durable. We just put them into the mic box loosely. The plastic drum mounts are a big time saver, too.

        they have their place

        By Anonymous

        from Undisclosed

        Comments about Sennheiser E604 Evolution Dynamic Tom and Snare Drum Microphone:

        I've used these microphones in a number of situations for drums in place of 421's or RE 20's. I think they sound pretty good on rack toms, though in my opinion the 421 will always be THE mic for rack toms. Also, they sound just a little more than okay on floor toms, but after doing that once, I'm probably gonna opt to not do it again unless I have to.Honestly, where these things really shine is on bottom snare, with a 57 on top. If you compress it just right in comparison to your snare top, you'll be hard pressed to get a better snare sound.The 3-pack is a pretty good bargain. If you're recording a drummer with high-tuned fusion rack toms, you can do that plus a snare bottom, then use a 421 or an RE 20 on the floor.I've also seen this microphone used as a bottom floor mic and a batter side kick mic with decent results. Its versatile like that. All in all, I think it has its place, and though I haven't tried it, I'm sure it would be great for hand percussion.

        amazing...but pricey

        By dancindingo

        from boston

        Comments about Sennheiser E604 Evolution Dynamic Tom and Snare Drum Microphone:

        I recently bought 4 of these used for a great deal and tried them out by recording a practice on drums. Until that day I had only used Sm57s on snare and toms. My sm57's have been demoted to backups and the occasional snare bottom on recordings. These things blow away the sm57s and are much smaller and easier to place. Overall my studio and live setups have migrated from Shure to Sennheiser. They are a little pricey but theyre worth it

        Great mic

        By The Mastermind

        from California

        Comments about Sennheiser E604 Evolution Dynamic Tom and Snare Drum Microphone:

        I use these as a professional audio engineer. I've used the Audix D series (loved em) and the Shure SM series (hated them) and I've got to say sennheiser/newman is my all in one solution. I also integrate some behringer and Samson mics into the mix as well. And for other use I still have my audix fusion and D series mics. Over all these are cheaper than the D series and easier to place. Strong as hell and work great. Sound incredible for the pro and amateur shows. Whenever I can I use the 900 series, but the 600s are great, I also use an e835 and the 865 for vocals (same cost as a shure 50, the performance of the shure beta 58 or 87) (the 845 is around 200+). For the pro shows use sennheiser, whether it be these or the 900 series.

        bullet proof

        By DSMars

        from Mississippi

        Comments about Sennheiser E604 Evolution Dynamic Tom and Snare Drum Microphone:

        I ran sound in a club for a while and used one of these on the snare. Some nights I could hear the drummer repeatedly whacking the mic with his sticks. The mic always sounded great and never got a scratch. The small size makes it easy to place, especially when you get one of those drummers who just has to cram a ton of gear up on the riser.Yes, the mic is a wee bit pricey, but I think it's worth it. You will never get a 57 in the space and a 57 will come apart with only a couple of hits from a drumstick. Sounds better than the 57 as well.

        Best mic for live drums I've found

        By dDBj-OI0z

        from norman, OK

        Comments about Sennheiser E604 Evolution Dynamic Tom and Snare Drum Microphone:

        This mic is a soundman's dream. Connect and remove in 2 seconds. The sound is comparable, and as good as, an sm57 - and I say that as one who loves the sm57. I also like the flexibility in positioning the mic downward toward the drum head. The only negative thing I have to say is that the price for the single mic is too high. The 3-Pack is a better value, but I'd like to see them a little cheaper still. But overall, it's the best option for live drum miking I've found.

        Performs like an SM57, just smaller and well... I'd be afraid to whack one of these with a stick...
