great for live drum recording (Sennheiser - e 945)

By ericthegreat, 28/11/2011
The Sennheiser E 945 is a dynamic microphone designed for use both in the studio and on the stage, although I’ve only used it in the studio. While it has a similar look to an SM57, the sound quality is definitely different and for this reason has a different set of applications. The Sennheiser E 945 also has an awesome look to it, with a silver metallic finish on it.


OVERALL OPINION

I’ve been using the Sennheiser E 945 for about two years and it has become my go to microphone for recording the bottom of a snare drum. I usually record the top of a snare drum with a Shure SM57, and blend the two signals together to get a sound I am satisfied with.

For some reason, the Sennheiser E 945 excels beyond expectation when it comes to recording the bottom of a snare drum. It has a certain high end presence that is perfect for picking up the rattling of the snares and is without a doubt the best at what it does in terms of picking up this signal. Since it sounds so great on the bottom of a snare, I honestly have never used this microphone for anything else. I’m sure it would sound good in a few other situations, but I have never had the chance to try it out on anything else. Sennheiser E 945 isn’t too well known, but for those who do know it they know how great it sounds for snare bottom.


If you can find one of these used, which is pretty hard because they are pretty rare, the price varies and I would really only recommend it to the user who is either a professional or is recording drums all the time in their home studio. While it is truly a great microphone for recording snare bottom, I can’t speak to how good it sounds on anything else and would therefore recommend those interested to try it out themselves to see if it fits their personal use. All in all, the Sennheiser E 945 is a great microphone that not too many people known about.

price (Sennheiser - e 912)

By theaudioandvideoguy, 24/06/2012
This mic is a pre polarized mic that has a half cardioid pick up The mic is rather expensive to me and can cost over 300 dollars brand new and I don’t believe that it provide quality that is worth that amount of money. There are other mics in Sennheizers line of mics that are better and cheaper than this one. This mic is an ideal mic for like a open area, this is not a studio mic so don’t think you can purchase it to use in yoru studio. This is more for a speech situation or maybe to record some real piano’s in an open space it just doesn’t perform that well to me in a confind studio space. I have tried using it in a small studio and it recorded but when using it on a stage in a auditorium you will really be able to pull all of its capabilities out. But like I said the price isn’t high, but its too high for the quality of the mic.


OVERALL OPINION

It does have a good frequency response to pick up instruments and can be used on vocals as well for stage and shows. When purchasing it you will get a manual, which is easy to understand and you really wont need It because if you purchase this mic then you know what you are purchasing it for so no need to pick up thte manual. It will also come with a pouch to carry it in. the mic wasn’t as big as I thought it was going to be which is a good thing since I travel a lot and picking up piano’s was a breeze with it.

The E 912 is a good mic in the end. I just feel like it should be a little cheaper than 300. It should be more in the range of 200 -230 and that would make me respect it a little more. But you wont be un happy if you get it. It does sound great.

The Best Choice for miking a cab (Sennheiser - e 906)

By Mattfig, 24/06/2012

Here's the official specs:

Pick-up pattern: supercardioid
Frequency response: 40Hz-18kHz
Sensitivity in free field, no load (1kHz): 2,2 mV/Pa
Nominal impedance: 350 ohm
Min. terminating impedance: 1000 ohm
Dimensions: 55 x 34 x 134 mm
Weight: 1/3 lb.




OVERALL OPINION

It's easy to place...GREAT value considering a new one is under two hundred...I own two and hope to get more...

I tried a lot of different mics over the years and none have worked so well on guitar cabs than this one...I place mine just off center from the cone and it is perfect....It's so forgiving that I can setup most times without having to check it...I know exactly what I'll get from it...Everytime!

This mic also does nicely on snare drums...It can handle some really high signal to noise ratios too...I would bet it's great on horns thoug I've never tried...

You can't miss with this mic...It is the new standard for many...SM57s still have their place too, the E906 is a great alternative that sounds as good if not better and is easier to place...

good horn mic (Sennheiser - e 908 B)

By AlanForPresident, 28/06/2012
\the E 908 B is made by Sennheiser and this particular mic is pretty expensive but it is a special scenario mic. Its mainly for Saxophone and a few other wind instruments. I have seen a few mics being used by saxophones and other wind instruments and comparing the E 908 to those I would have to say that it is better than the rest. It will give you a crystal clear recording very easy. The mic is rather expensive but if you are a sax player or in a band then this is a must have. You cannot purchase a cheap mic and expect great results. This mic is perfect for live jazz bands as I have see and used it several times in that situations.


OVERALL OPINION

It does have a shock absorber that will get rid of any handling noise or noise from movement of your instrument. When you purchase you will get a pouch or carrying case to keep it in and a clamp for it to go onto your sax. You will get a manual but you wont need it unless you don’t know how to clamp a mic to your horn.

Great sound quality , one of the best sax mics that I have ever heard. It does cost more than 400 bucks though. Which really isn’t a lot when you look at similar mics, and when purchasing a sax mic you don’t want to take that decision lightly. You will need a good mic to carry your sound throughout the room and make it sound very clean and clear. This mic does require phantom power and it comes with the phantom power adapter so you wont have to worry about that. This mic is ready to go right out of the box , just clamp it and start playing. Its great in live situations.
