e609 on Toms?
« on: February 03, 2010, 04:43:16 pm »

I'm looking for some affordable mics to use on snare/toms. I was going to just go with the typical sm57s. But thought about the e609, since they are only $10 more, and thought they could be easier placed in tight situations. Has anyone used these on any toms or snares? I know these are typically found on guitar cabs, but $100 is my budget on each mic.

I dont know how they would hold up to a stick strike but I think I would go with the 604 instead, Smaller easy to place and will take a lot of abuse.

D1 and D2's from Audix work well with the Audix flex clamp - I have been very happy with them

Kinda related:  The Sennheiser e906 sounds good on snare under.

If the e609 is not going to be able to take a stick beating, how do the d-2 ($130 w/flex) and e604 compare/differ?

I use the E604s all the time, no complaints that I can think of.

I haven't used the Sennheisers enough to have a useful opinion on how they sound; but I like the mounts that come in the Audix kit a lot more than the Sennheiser drum mounts.  Mic to mic, I don't think I would care; but if you are getting a kit, the Audix kit is a pretty good value.

if you are looking for double duty, the e906 is much better on guitar cabs than the 609 and worth the extra dollars. I now own both after reading opinions here, bought one, and now the other guitar player will get the 609. No opinions on using either for tom duty.

The Audix kit is very good; when we play our corporate shows they use the Audix kit, although they prefer a B52 for kick. The D-Vice clamps are great.

The e609 sounds pretty good on rack tom. It isn't super robust though. The e604 sounds decent, though the 900 series sounds a lot better.

I use the Audix D series on my kick and toms. Couldn't be happier.
