Easily mounted and directed to the sound using a flexible boom and the clip supplied, the e 908D can be positioned optimally at the sound source.

Specifically designed for drum miking
The Sennheiser e 908D is a professional pre-polarized condenser microphone designed for picking up drum sounds. Try it about one or two inches above the
drumhead, directed towards the center of the head. The fundamental-to-overtones ratio can be adjusted by changing the angle of the microphone. The most balanced
results are obtained at an angle of 30-60 degrees. The e 908D's extended dynamic range and well-balanced frequency response deliver outstanding signal quality with excellent projection and the lowest possible distortion. The e 908D exhibits excellent directivity across the whole frequency range that enables the mic to handle the highest signal levels without feedback.
Minimal handling noise and easy mounting
The e 908D's extensive damping and shock mounting isolate the capsule from extraneous vibrations, impact, and handling noise. The long, flexible gooseneck enable the mic to be optimally positioned on the drum. Due to their phantom powering capability, the e 908D is especially suitable for use with professional mixing consoles. Alternatively, it can be used with any evolution bodypack transmitter for wireless applications.
The e 908D condenser microphone comes with multi-function MZH 908 D drum clamp.
