Sennheiser e 901 Half-Cardioid Boundary Condenser Mic for Kick Drum

SennheiserSKU: 000904

Sale price£219


The half-cardioid e 901 is the perfect condenser microphone for kick drum. It is highly robust and step-resistant. It benefits from an integrated preamp.

The e 901 is a rugged boundary microphone that handles high sound pressure levels extraordinarily well. Tailored to give the kick drum a highly precise, very dry sound character, the e 901 makes every attack lightning fast and realistic. The positioning of the e 901 in a bass drum couldn't be simpler: just put it in – done. The integrated preamp and gold-plated XLR connector have proven themselves to be exceptionally practical on stage.
