Sennheiser E901 Pre-Polarized Condenser Microphone Optimized for Kick Drum

SKU: 500199

With it's sleek profile and contoured frequency response, the Sennheiser E901 is ideal for capturing kick drums, bass cabinets and other low frequency signal sources. The E901's capsule is designed around a pre-polarized half-cardioid condenser element that provides exceptional signal reproduction while eliminating noise and reflections from the surface. The thin, high-strength diaphragm delivers a low bass response and reproduces fast transient signals without peak distortion. A rubber damping plate absorbs noise associated with vibration.
