High Performance Overheads for evolution
12 October 2001
Sennheiser has expanded its evolution range of dedicated instrument microphones with a competitively priced, high quality condenser model, the e664. Designed for applications such as drum kit overheads, or acoustic instrument miking, such as for guitars or strings, the e664 features low noise electronics, high output and a highly sensitive capsule for both studio and live performance applications.
The e644's cardioid response pattern provides highly effective feedback and rear-field signal rejection. In keeping with the evolution ethos, the e664 offers build and performance specifications superior to microphones several times its price. The metal bodied mic features a matt-black, anodised, scratch-resistant finish. A switchable low frequency roll-off filter protects against low level hum and rumble, while the capsule provides a 40 - 20kHz frequency response (+ 2.5dB) and a 130dB maximum SPL rating.
Sennheiser's highly successful German-manufactured evolution series of wireless and wired high quality dynamic microphones continues to expand with several new products on show at the recent PLASA Show. The evolution range of metal bodied stage microphones feature differing capsule types and response patterns but share the same innovative capsule development, rigorous construction and quality control standards. A full range of dedicated instrument mics and monitor headsets is also included.
