i just got both of these. havent reakky heard either one yet, but The Internet says that the 57 is good and the e609 is better. I bought the shure on reputation, and the fact that some of my best guitar tonez came from a 58 with the ball unscrewwed.

Lol, I'm currently using a karaoke mic from Target. Clearly my ears don't work or I'm layering so much dirt it doesn't matter.

Then again, my vocal mic is a shure beta 58a which I love.

I have a cheap JTS which seems to be a copy of a Shure SM58 for vocals. I borrowed someone's SM58 and really couldn't tell the difference between the sounds. I love this mic. I'm now gonna look into both of these for guitars though!

i'm always smiling when i see a place is mic'ing cabs with the flat sennheiser but their e906 is far superior, i'm not really an audiophile but if something sounds good you just hear the difference you know. or maybe because the shure 57's are such a standard the sennheiser e's are a nice change but i really think the e906's really shine, i just don't know technically what it is but of you hear it you just know. it's not being anal about sound, i use cheap vocal mics and shure 58's (not the betas) but for micing up stuff live the good stuff does it much more justice, it's just more 'real' sounding the way you hear your amp on stage compared to the sound people in the audience hear, the e906 does your gear more justice.

I liked Mic 2 better...

Interestingly, I've got one of those and the other guitarist in my band has the other.

I feel vindicated.

If either one of those is a "people on the internet" mic it's definitely the e609.

906



609

the sm57 and e609 are about the same price, but the e906 is like $75 more or so.

sm57 - kinda nasal whatever, great for 80's lofi thrash or iron maiden

e609 - bright, great for cleans, amazing mic for live use

yeah i know they cost more so it makes sense for a comparison sennheiser vs. shure they gotta be around the same price but i don't think i'd get the 609 knowing the difference with a 906 i would pay a bit more.

Something even better to see would be a shoot out of an SM7b, Sennheiser 421, and an EV RE-20. Yes, these are more expensive but I think they'll give an even greater sound off. +1 to mic'n cabs, only way to go.

i always forget to mention that i really like the e609 on TOMS. I just recorded some drums and used the e609 on floor tom and it's awesome!
the e609 has amazing off axis rejection which why i love it for live use, and for toms it doesn't pick up so much of the rest of the kit, which is always a plus.


LUV IT.

Sloan,
Have you tried the Cad M179 on Toms? Man does that mic rock on almost all drum pieces. Its a condenser with like 5 patterns as well...very versatile. Decent on Cabs and Vox as well.

I had no idea CADs we good at anything. I always see a 6 piece "drum pack" going for like $99 in the local classifieds but always turn my nose up to it because I've heard bad things about them. Should even be considering picking this up?
