Sennheiser e908B-EW is a cardioid condenser microphone with gooseneck, perfect for clipping onto the bell of a sax or trumpet.
It’s described by Sennheiser as “Solid, focused and precisely positionable”
Not a bad summary, but let’s dig a little deeper. Sennheiser e908 has a cardioid pickup pattern and has a big frequency response (40 Hz – 20kHz) with quite a ‘lift’ at the upper end of the spectrum, to help with a ‘presence’ to the sound.
Part of the charm of e908 is its simplicity. The 12cm gooseneck is easily manoeuvrable, and in conjunction with the simple bell-clip, makes for a great combination to ensure the e908b condenser capsule gets positioned right in the sweet spot of the sax, or brass instrument regardless of how loud your stage is.
There is a short snippet of sax played through e908 on the video below. A longer sample would have been desirable….if only we had access to a trumpet or sax player in our shop. Stay tuned for an updated video 😉
Note: this e908B-EW is designed to work with a Sennheiser bodypack transmitter, for wireless applications. If you prefer a ‘hard wired’ version, choose e908B, which includes the MZA900P preamp for XLR connection.
