Sennheiser E906 overview

  • 1Description

The Sennheiser e 906 is a supercardioid instrument microphone primarily designed for close capturing of guitar cabinets. The e 906 features a dynamic element with a supercardioid polar pattern that provides optimum rejection of off-axis signal and residual noise. The e 906 provides high headroom and low distortion when capturing signals at excessive sound pressure levels. The element responds to very fast attacks with extreme accuracy, without distortion. The e 906 is an excellent choice for guitar cabinets as well as percussion and brass instruments.

Optimized for Guitar Cabinets
The e 906's frequency and sensitivity response is optimized for accurate reproduction of guitar cabinets, brass and percussion.
Fast Transient Response
The e 906 is capable of withstanding high sound pressure levels and fast attacks are reproduced accurately without distortion.
Supercardioid Polar Pattern
The supercardioid polar pattern is effective in minimizing off-axis audio and residual noise that may cause feedback.
Hum Compensation
The built-in hum compensation coil suppresses hum and low-frequency noise.
Rugged Construction
The rugged, durable construction is capable of handling life on the road or in studio.

    Sennheiser E906 reviews

    e 906 Supercardioid Guitar Microphone is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific, transparent Cardioid Mic I bought to of these to run as a stereo pair for guitar amplifiers in a live environment. They are terrific! They handle whatever two 100 watt amps can throw at them and do not color the sound in any sort of negative manner. They definitely let the amps tone shine right through. I went from two classic Sm57s to these and I just notice more clarity and detail than I did with the 57s. Mic placement is a breeze. I spent all of 5 minutes with a pre-recorded loop figuring out the most natural sound and its very easy to find the large sweetspot with these mics. Again, the 57 does not have a huge sweet spot.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great recording mic Use ONLY for recording guitar amp. It is clear and balanced, has a switch to contour the high frequencies 3 positions , I usually leave in center . The hang over lay on grill placement method is definitely a great attribute. I sometimes go stereo with two amps, the 906 on one amp and a 57 on the other. I have used a shure 57 for more than 25 years along with ribbon mics for recording amps , the 906 is a fresh sound to the palette. really good on clean sounds , but also very articulate on the crunch/distortion tones. Have only used on 6L6 type amps at the moment. The only short coming ( if you could call it that ) is it is a natural sound not punchy like the senn 421 or shure 57. I think its good to have a few different mics to record amps.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pequeo y potente Adquirido para grabaciones de campo en lugares ambientalmente hostiles, es una excelente adquisicin. sobre todo para registrar sonido con un alto nivel de SPL. Hasta ahora los he utilizado para una variedad de aplicaciones, ninguna relacionada para el uso que recomienda el fabricante. Curioso....
