Made for drums

Sennheiser e 604 microphone polar pattern.

The e 604 picks up sound in front of it, while rejecting noise behind it for clean, focused audio.

The Sennheiser e 604 dynamic microphone lets you close-mic drums and percussion and get great sound. The mic has a reinforced fiberglass body that's both durable and lightweight, so it's easy to place anywhere — especially with the provided drum clip. Its frequency response and cardioid polar pattern are optimized for snares and toms. And this mic is designed to handle extremely high sound pressure, so you don't have to hold back. You can also use the e 604 with brass and woodwind instruments.

Why a dynamic mic?

Dynamic microphones are engineered for the rigors of live performance and life on the road. Thanks to a very simple and rugged design concept that relies on few internal parts and no electronic components, they're tough, durable, and require no outboard power source to operate. Looking to outfit your church's PA system with vocal microphones? Need to mike your lead guitarist's cabinet for a big club gig? You'll find dynamic mics to fit the bill. If, however, you're looking for a recording microphone to capture sounds in exquisite detail, consider a condenser mic instead.

Product Research


Overview: The Sennheiser e 604 is a cardioid dynamic instrument microphone that can be mounted on a stand or clipped directly to the instrument. This small, compact microphone has an integrated swivel mount, and comes with a zippered storage pouch.

Pickup Pattern: The e 604 has a cardioid polar pattern, which rejects unwanted background noise, and reduces feedback.

Construction: The e 604 has a rugged reinforced glass-fiber body that is able to withstand the rigors of a live performance. It is resistant to shocks, and reduces handling noise. The mic is built for very high sound pressure levels in excess of 160dB.

Mounting: The mic has an integrated swivel mount that can be tilted forward or backward up to 180°. It has a 5/8" thread and comes with a 5/8"-to-3/8" thread adapter to accommodate smaller threaded mic stands and mounts. It comes with the MZH 604 clamp mount that can attach directly to a drum rim or the bell of a woodwind or brass instrument.
