Comments about Sennheiser evolution e906 Dynamic Guitar Amp Microphone:

Let's talk sound first. Sounds similar to a Shure 57. A little brighter and more attack. It has a presents switch to modify the output curve with either more top end or to a smoother sound. Overall the sound quality is great with very little coloration added. The mic only weights a few ounces so supporting it is not a problem. It can be supported by its cable and hang down in front of the cabinet saving the cost of a stand. Not to professional but effective. I don't know how well it would handle getting dropped or other misuse. I don't want to try. It seems to be a good quality product. It is a dynamic mic so no phantom power is required. A little pricey. Has a good output and good off axis rejection. Overall it is a keeper.

        Comments about Sennheiser evolution e906 Dynamic Guitar Amp Microphone:

        I really enjoy this mic. I had one for about a year then lost it. I tried around with a few others and the only way be that came close was the e609. The e906 just sounded a bit clearer and captured the sound of my amp a bit better with the options it has on it. For a single mic you can slap right in front of your amp (especially when you have to set up quickly) it's perfect. So, I bought another. Just make sure you take time and find the sweet spot on your amp because a 1/4 of and inch makes a difference with this mic.

                Recorded side-by-side with SM57 and noticed definite fullness improvement, punchier sound from the e906. Can't wait to use it on the next gig.

                e906 - Pretty Decent

                By Magoon67

                from Saint johnsbury, VT

                Comments about Sennheiser evolution e906 Dynamic Guitar Amp Microphone:

                The Sennheiser e906 is a good mic to have whenever you go out and play or head into the studio to work. I have likes and dislikes with this mic. I wouldn't get rid of this mic for any reason, but I would defiantly have other mics on hand as well. Recording guitar cabs with this mic seems to be pretty painless but I would strongly recommend putting another mic next to it. It works well with blending other mics with it. I usually blend it with an SM57. then put a condenser above the cab to get the room and it's a good pace to start. On a side note, I find this mic works for fender amps.I have to say the e609 might be slightly better. I think there is a padding that was added to the e906 to make the 906 and I think it changes the dynamic of the mic for worse. The 609 that I used was a little more honest.Both mics work on the tops of snare drums too. But once again. I suggest having another mic blended with it. On snares, put the other mic on the bottom.In closing, it's a good mic to have. I would recommend it, but have backups. Take a look at the e906 as well.

                A pretty good mic

                Comments about Sennheiser evolution e906 Dynamic Guitar Amp Microphone:

                I can honestly say this is a good mic...especially for the $$$. I found it works best for me when I pair it up with an SM57. I really like the idea of the built in filters, however, I never seem to have anything on me to switch it when I need to, but I can understand why they went with the countersunk switch. This mic really shined on stage: it let me really crank the guitar without giving me any problems with feedback and still maintained sound quality.

                A great mic for short dough

                By pspagnolia

                from Worcester, MA

                Comments about Sennheiser evolution e906 Dynamic Guitar Amp Microphone:

                I own a live recording studio where performance of a mic is paramount, especially for guitars. I received my E906 about a month ago and have used it on 3 live recordings of 3 different bands under 3 seperate sets of conditions, 1. rehearsal studio, 2. Live Soundstage, 3. Small club with close proximity to all other insturments. The performance of this mic has been nothing short of stellar. Every guitar is clear and captures the exact sound coming off of the speakers. I'm impressed with this little jewel as it's performed beyond my expectations...I'm buying 2 more!!!
