The Senn 609

Details for the 

e609

General Description

Just like the classic MD 409, the e609 likes to be right up on the grille of your guitar cabinet, to the degree that you can just drape it over your amp and let it hang there in the right spot on your amp — no stand needed! A natural 40Hz low-frequency cutoff prevents excessive boominess, and it’s virtually impossible to overload the e609, so go ahead and crank it up. Other things to note are its clear sound, courtesy of a powerful neodymium magnet and hum-compensating coil.

Mic 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!
