I like it better than the Shure SM57, but that's just me. I have used SM57s for many years but I don't understand why 90% of the reviews prefer the SM57 over this silver Sennheiser e609 Dynamic Mic.

I think this mic focus only on thing, delivering great and accurate guitar sound, I didn't even need to tweak the EQ at all to get the right tone, although my guitar tone source was already the way I wanted it but I always had to tweak the EQs when recording with a SM57. Also the Sennheiser e609 is easy to place really close to the amp cab without even using a mic stand and is easy to locate that sweet spot that is always so uncomfortable to get when using a mic with a stand.

Moreover. it looks better than SM57 with an old vintage style but yet really lightweight, I'd say half of the weight than the SM57.

I'm comparing this mic to a 57. I often use both for recording guitar, and mix them together. For distorted guitar, it seems to lack the balls that the 57 has. It does a better job than the 57 for the high end, which is good for clean sounds, but in my opinion it doesn't sound that good for the distorted sounds I've used it on. It's probably better as a live mic or maybe a live recording mic if you want to cut down on bleed.

    Use this mic on my lead guitarist amp to run through the PA system.This way it will not interfere with his settings and yet amplify the sound.

      Picked up this mic a couple days ago. Recorded with it today and I'm so pleased! Picks up all the best characteristics of my Princeton Reverb without having to struggle too much with placement! Not as picky as the SM57, and it definitely produces a hotter signal and less hum. I'll be taking this mic on a tour here in a couple days, so we'll see how she hold up for extensive live use! Very excited about this microphone. Can't wait to run it with an SM57 at shows!

            This is by far the best mic I've ever owned for instruments. Easy placement to find that sweet spot from your speaker. The sound guys love it too. I used an SM57 for years and this is much easier to work with and provides a much hotter and cleaner signal. I play pedal steel and clarity and tone are my main requirements.
