SM57 vs e609
The Shure SM57 and the Sennheiser e609...
They are probably the most common, most used mics for mic'ing guitar amps. So I decided I would pit them against eachother.
Even though both these mics are extremely common-place both in the studio and on the stage, they do have very unique and distinct sound characteristics. And being the detail-oriented, mediocre guitar player that I am, I decided that I would let you all hear some of the differences between these two mics.
Here's the setup...
1994 MIJ Strat with rosewood neck-->Boss TU-2-->Fender Twin Reverb 1965 RI
Strat-->Boss TU2-->Epiphone Valve Jr.-->Celestion Heritage 75W 12"
Now I tried my absolute best to place these two mics in the same position relative to the speaker(s).
And without further ado...
You make the call, the SM57 and the e609.
Until next time,
