Sennheiser E604 Review.
Cunnerzzz, 23.02.2014
I have purchased these microphones before, having watched many in depth reviews on Youtube. The sound quality from these mics is second to none and very professional. They are small, compact and brilliant! The reason I chose these mics besides the sound quality is that they are small and fit on the toms perfectly, they attach to the hoop with an included clamp that fits tightly to the mic making a secure attachment to the drum. From such a trusted brand like Sennheiser I expected nothing less than perfect quality and that is what I have received.
I would strongly recommend these microphones to anyone looking to get a punchy booming sound from their drums! Thanks Thomann!

My go-to for Toms
NyquistAudio, 24.04.2018
I love these mics, they are my go-to mic for use on toms and have been for many years. I prefer them to more expensive mics like the Shure Beta 98s. I find they give me a more consistent sound than small condensers and they're so quick and easy to clamp on a tom. Very reliable clamp. Can also be screwed onto mic stand for use with cajon, etc

Great mic with great low end response
weglimir, 09.09.2019
I have MD421 for a very long time, and well, for me this mic works well on the same level. Low end response is different, but I always have impression that E604 by default sits better in a mix. Of course both are great mics! Highly recomended!

Small but perfectly formed!
Iain M., 25.09.2014
Having both read various reviews of different mic options in the Eur100 budget mark and taken guidance from experienced live tour engineers, I opted for three of these mics for 2 rack and a floor tom.

The combination of a solid, predictable sound from a very modestly sized mic together with a simple, robust clip on attachment makes for a winning combination at the price.

The build quality is impressive too - although only a dozen or so shows old, a couple of them are bearing tiny stick marks from wayward drummers (!) but their performance is unaffected.

I've no previous experiences with alternative options to offer by way of comparison but as a newcomer I'd highly recommend these mics as a great starting point for live drum sounds!

The classic Tom Mic
Audioline, 31.05.2018
The sennheiser E604 is the classic tom tom microphone.
The sound of the 604 is clear, crisp and big, probably due to the proximity effect of the dynamic capsule.
The best thing about the e604 is however the clip! It's well-design and robust making it super easy to place it on the majority of toms with a metallic hoop.
Also, since its made of very robust plastic it can take a it, which is probably to happen since their proximity to a drummers sticks.
There are mics that sound better but for just for the practicality and lifespan of the 604 it totally deserves a place in any tech/drummer mic bag.

Plug-n-Play Favourites
FilipH, 26.05.2016
Wonderful, robust mics that are a breeze to setup. The sound check usually lasts 5 minutes with them. And the drum set always sounds beefy and warm. The 600's are rightfully a frequent choice of many sound engineers. Best -buy

Excellent
09.04.2015
This is just a perfect tom microphone. They just sound great even on a really bad drum kit. They have been hit many many times with drumsticks at full blow and no change in integrity or sound. They can be set in any sane angle, they even clamp on unusual drum hoops (e.g. Amati) and it has cable management. I can only recommend it.

Never let you down!
Ewl1, 02.06.2015
These are my go to microphones for snare miking. I'm not really a fan of the supplied rim clamp, but that's just really a question of preference and not me saying it's useless. When miking toms, snare and bass drum beater side this is my go to microphone.

Great little mic
02.02.2017
Ive been playing Irish bodhran drums for a long time and trying different types of mics but with no success until I came across this little mic that works superbly and has great bass as well as high tones.

Solid and easy to use.
28.08.2014
Great to clip on toms for a super easy live drum mic scenario. Don't sound groundbreaking, but take EQ really well and win every time for drummers who don't like big mics surrounding their kit.

My favourite drum mic
14.05.2013
I have always used e604s for toms. While I also like the Audix D2/D4 microphones, they are a bit big and bulky in comparison to the e604. The clamps are very good too, made of some kind of indestructible plastic/rubber type material and clip onto drum rims very easily and securely. They sound big and bold, allowing toms to cut the mix with ease, and what sounds like an accentuated 4k attack. The body of the mix is moulded plastic, which doesn't seem like the best material for being in the danger zone of drum sticks. However, I have had 3 of these for 3 years and they have multiple stick marks, but the plastic has never been damaged. The only mic I have similar to this but better build quality and more 'open' sounding is the e904, but that costs more ???!
Also surprisingly good on guitar cabs, especially if you want something close to the 421 sort of sound.

Great value for money
AndyCDrums, 03.08.2018
I have 2 of the E904's and was told that the 604's are the same with a budget casing. I use them for live and the quality is exactly the same as the 904's.

best mic
Henrik.wik, 05.05.2015
Best mic for the money! Sounds great on almost anything. Almost identical sound to the classic MD421. Check the specs!

As a sound technician I use a alot of different mics (421, shure beta, audio technica & beyer dynamic) live and in the studio but when it comes to price the 604 is side by side with classic sm57 the most versitile mic. Actually i have never tested it on guitar (i will) but its a killer on toms!

Sennheiser E604
02.07.2014
All the top bands use these mics. So if its good enough for them, its good enough for me. They are great because the mics just clip on to any drum hoop (I've even had them on a conga drum too). They work perfectly, although, as they are easy to drop, I have had one or two pack up on me, whether that was due to a faulty mic or that I'd dropped them once or twice, who knows. Good mics.

Miking up and recording a drum kit is a fairly complicated procedure, and this can apply equally to choosing the right mics for the job.
