Sennheiser E614 Super-Cardioid Condenser Microphone
The Sennheiser e614 condenser microphone features a supercardioid design that makes it a precise tool for use with cymbals and overall drum overhead duties. It offers high SPL handling, which is great for an instrument like the cymbal which typically operates at loud velocities. The mic’s medium sensitivity allows it to capture great sound but also shuts out any of the bleed-through that can occur from closely adjacent instruments on the drum kit. It offers a very flat response and has a frequency range of 40Hz to 20kHz, so you can really get an accurate sounding cymbal performance. The e614 also comes with a mic clip and carrying pouch, making it great for travel as well as home recording. Additionally, this unit also comes with a 10-year warranty.
