Details for the 

e609

General Description

Image-empty-state_edited_edited.jpg

The e-609 is an industry standard for close micing tube guitar amps at high SPL levels.

It does not require a mic stand as it hangs down from the top of the amp on its cable. It lays flat against the amp's grill cloth.

The e-609 role is in the Dual Amp Muse studio configuration on the Tone King tube amp.

Comments

The e609 has a clear character of its own. Lows are tight and punchy without booming, the mids are rich, and the highs are present without sounding harsh. Engineers here at Sweetwater and beyond agree that the best sound you'll get out of this mic is when you simply drape it over your amp and let them meet grille to grille. Combined with its tight supercardioid polar pattern, this close mic position makes the e609 virtually impervious to off-axis sound. No feedback or mic bleed here!
