This is a hum compensating dynamic microphone that will help you to control your feedback. It's flat shape makes it quick and easy to apply and the capsule provides low sensitivity to structure-borne noise.

Simply hang the e609 in front of the amp's speaker and it will faithfully pickup any sound the amp can dish out.

Bought a pair of these at the beginning of 2017 for miking guitar cabs for live shows. Absolutely love these mics! They sound similar to a 57 but offer a more "open" and "present" response and are nicely balanced across the useable spectrum. While not hyper-cardioid, they provide good off axis rejection. I've used them on great rigs that sound like great rigs through the system and wedges. I've used them on not so great rigs that actually sound better through the system than out of the cab.

OK, so after years of micing up guitar cabinets with whatever, usually sm57s or beta 57s, I bought one of these. I noticed an immediate improvement in guitar sounds though my PA, better in the head phones and also better in the mains. Sure, with electric guitar it is usually not a problem getting enough signal, but how does it SOUND? This mic sounds better, bright, present, good on fender cabinets, but also good crunch and bass from big old marshals. A great benefit is you can just hang it from the XLR cable over the cabinet right in front, saves a mic stand in tight spaces. I know, possible noise from bumping the front of the cabinet, but hey this is live not recording. I have also used the mic for acoustic guitar in coffee house settings. It is ok for that, sounds good, but doesn't have quite the sensitivity. A good second purpose for this mic, but if you are micing no-pickup accoustic a lot there are other choices that are better.

I'm renting one of these right now, I rented a few mics recently in pursuit of amazing guitar tone for my studio. I picked up a shure sm57, and one of these. The 57 on it's own is slightly disappointing, BUT when I paired it up with this just about directly in the middle of the speaker, the 57 on the edge of the speaker, and a shure sm7b on the other side of the speaker, I found it. I can't say enough wonderful things about this mic. The price is right, the thing is easy to use, and picks up everything I'm throwing at it. Love it. Highly recommended.
