Sennheiser e602 dynamic kick drum mic

£6.00 plus VAT per day

The Sennheiser e602 is a dedicated bass instrument microphone ideal for use with kick drums, but also useful for mic’ing bass guitar cabinets and (allegedly) tuba. There is a mic stand-sized screw thread built-in. According to Sennheiser, the frequency response is pre-shaped to reject feedback and give an extended bass response. In layman’s terms, chuck it in a kick drum and it sounds great.

There is a mic stand-sized screw thread built-in. According to Sennheiser, the frequency response is pre-shaped to reject feedback and give an extended bass response. In layman’s terms, chuck it in a kick drum and it sounds great.

The punch of the kick drum keeps its forceful volume at the bottom of the sound image; the attack remains precise throughout the mic’s entire frequency response.
The e 602 hears bass guitars and tubas with the same attention to detail: warm, dynamic, and always with substance. It sounds as solid as it looks and, thanks to its lightweight aluminum body, is easy to position – in studios, clubs, rehearsal rooms, at smaller gigs or for home recording.
