SENNHEISER e904

Nothing, repeat nothing can ever compare with a miniature condenser microphone when it comes to capturing highly percussive sounds. The smaller and hence the lighter the diaphragm the better. Inspired by the legendary AKG 451 the S900 captures the sizzle of the cymbal and crack of the tom tom. Thankfully the sound is not chromium plated or metallic. Conventional dynamic microphones sound as if you are listening through a door in comparison. The frequency response reveals why the sound is so smooth. It is ruler flat right through the ‘difficult’ 5kHz to 10kHz region where others exhibit ‘presence peaks’. The response is + 3dB from 50Hz to 15kHz and the maximum SPL is 148dB. The equivalent Noise Level is 18dB-A (IEC 268-4) A weighted. The low noise platform is attributed to the front end bi polar FETs.

DYNAMIC PERCUSSION MICROPHONE The cardioid e904 provides great sound without getting in the way in even the most crowded set-ups. • Specifically designed for drum

Powered 9V-52V phantom powering.

STUDIOSPARES S970

OVERHEAD PERCUSSION CONDENSER MICROPHONE

The S970 gets really close to the action. For any percussive application, this model is difficult to beat whatever the price. The pre-polarised electret capsule has a tiny diaphragm so is able to capture the harmonics associated with percussion instruments. The upper frequency limit is beyond the range of audio measuring equipment. The microphone has little response from other local instruments due to the tight pickup pattern. It simply clips onto the body, bell or rim etc of any instrument. The gooseneck allows precise placement of the capsule. Living next to a snare drum or being clipped to the bell of a saxophone makes great demands on the overload factor. Thankfully the SPL is 136dB, no problem.

Phantom powered from 9 to 52 volts. S970

SENNHEISER e604

INSTRUMENT MICROPHONE ELEMENTS Optional interchangeable elements for the U853A. • UE-H - Hypercardioid (100°) • UE-O - Omnidirectional (360°) Description

For anyone really serious about capturing percussive sounds accurately, the Overhead Percussion Mic is a dream come true. Earlier condenser microphones were easily overloaded at high SPLs. Not so with this series. In fact the SPL is a whopping 145dB. This is mainly due to the front end being designed around an FET preamplifier. The small pressure gradient diaphragm can respond instantly to the initial attack of percussive sounds without overloading. The whole essence of this model is its ability to capture transients with no distortion. The response extends beyond the nominal 20Hz to 20kHz. Requires 48V phantom power.

This space saving, compact drum and brass microphone is ideal for low visibility, close miking techniques. The frequency response and pick-up pattern are optimised for drum sets and percussion instruments. The e604 also excels on brass and woodwind. An integral stand mount screws directly onto mic stands. The included clip attaches the mic directly to the rim of the drum. It is able to reproduce levels in excess of 160dB. The lightweight voice coil provides extended high frequencies and rapid transient response. The response extends from 40Hz to 18kHz. The tough reinforced glass fibre body takes the knocks and shocks and suppresses impact noise.

Supplied complete with pouch and mic clip. e604
