Used this mic for the first time this weekend, was awesome. Nice microphone for guitar amp. The low-profile design makes it easy to place the mic right in the sweet spot of the amp. Nice clear, clean tone. Very happy with the purchase.

Have always used SM 57s for guitar cabinet microphones but never felt they were all that great and accepted that I would loose some tone. Not so with the e609. It sounds much better and the flat design is great! Just hang it over the can right in the center of a speaker! It handles high volume no problem. This mic gives the FOH mix more of what you want!

Great Guitar Mike!

After a couple of uses, this is a mic with good sound. A bit low gain, but maybe it's geared toward hanging in front of very loud amps - using it as an upright piano mic.

guitar-amp mic

Works great as a guitar-amp mic. You can hang it over the top of the amp, or use something like the K&M 25950 (or 25900) stands. I'm not enamored with Sennheiser's mic clips, but they function; I'd be concerned about repeatedly attaching/removing mics from those clips. That could be unwarranted, but time will tell. Otherwise the mic sounds perfect for my needs (micing guitar amps)
