Sennheiser has selected its Evolution e 604 as its Mic of the Month for July 2018. It is a cardioid microphone for drums and brass instruments.
The frequency response and cardioid pick-up pattern of the e 604 are optimized for drum sets and other percussion instrument miking, while also producing exceptional results on all forms of brass and woodwind. An integral stand mount screws directly into mic stands and included clip attaches mic to rim of drum.
Very high sound pressure level handling, in excess of 160 dB, is combined with a balanced, clear, low distortion signal similar to a high-end studio condenser microphone. Lightweight voice coil provides extended high frequency and rapid transient response. A tough reinforced glass fiber body takes the knocks and shocks and suppresses impact noise.
