One of the best mics for guitar amplifiers..live and in the studio

BernhardH, 23.10.2009
The Sennheiser E906 is, in my opinion, one of the best mics for guitar amplifiers .. live AND in the studio. On the stage it works very reliably and stably, is made even for the fact that it can be dangled on the front of the amp, unfortunately, too often with SM57s of crazy roadies happened .. here is the capsule with 90 degrees on loudspeaker speakers . Above all, it has a sound that reproduces what comes from the speaker more precisely than virtually any other dynamic micro. The E906 is suspiciously light (140 grams) but still feels very indestructible.

Yesterday I made the studio comparison, the same 12-inch amplifier with 4 different microphones recorded:
- the Sennheiser E906 very close to the loudspeaker,
-to compare a Shure SM57 synonymous very close but just right on the speaker aligned,
-a Oktava 319 Condenser microphone (usually very good and neutral)
-and a t-bone RM700 ribbon micro (always good for electric guitars)

The volume microphone and the octava were about 50 cm far away, the volume not too killer but powerful 30Watt (Peavey Classic 30 tube amplifier) ??and then the same experiment with a Roland JC120.

Interesting result
- the Shure SM57 sound cutting sharp to croaky
- the condenser microphone Oktava clearer but still hard and cutting
- the ribbon microfiber warm and clear, sound-like
- and the Sennheiser 906 sounds exactly the same as the ribbon microphone - outstanding!

The Sennheiser sits directly on the speaker, can withstand more, above all much more volume, and can also fall off. The Sennehiser has a superniere form, ie it takes except the wos drauf is hardly true.

The only drawback with the JC 120 dual amplifier is that the supernoles and the proximity to a single loudspeaker can not pick up the mixed chorus sound coming from two speakers as much as a micro that is farther away. Which of course the Quadboxenfans or the vintage people should not disturb .. On the other hand, is also good for Congas, Toms and blowers ...

Conclusion: Versatile and yet the best allround microphone for guitar amplifiers, also in the studio ...

Perfect

Whitesid, 15.10.2012
Here is a microphone that allows to transplant a guitar amp without taking the head. It reproduces the sound of the amp faithfully, without bothering to find the right position. In general I position it between 3 and 5 cm off axis, and the result is good. These three filter positions are nice enough to get a warmer or colder coloration, but as far as I'm concerned, I prefer to use an equalization for this.

Oh yes, if you are like us, that is to say that the stage or your local of repetition is small, the fact that it does not require foot support, makes it possible to gain a considerable place (it can be worth its weight of 'gold)
