Ideal for capturing kick drums and other low frequency signal sources.


The Sennheiser E901 - Half Cardioid Condenseris 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.
