Sennheiser (www.sennheiserusa.com) will launch the 900 Evolution Microphone Series at Summer NAMM 2003, targeted to professional performers and rental companies. Comprising three wired mics—the E 935 and E 945 vocal microphones and the E 903 instrument mic—the new range is particularly well-suited for the most demanding live performance environments.
With a tapered black handle and hip gunmetal-blue grille, the 900 Series has a feel, look and sound all its own. The two vocal mics feature shock-mounted capsules to minimize handling noise, while the rugged metal casings will stand up to the inevitable abuses of the road. The E 935 features a cardioid polar pattern and improved gain-before-feedback over its predecessor, the E 835, while the E 945 is a super-cardioid version that picks up where its predecessor, theE 845, left off.
The new E 903 cardioid snare-drum mic is engineered to deliver outstanding frequency response while tolerating maximum sound-pressure levels. It delivers a punchy transient response while accentuating the true characterof the snare.
MSRP: E 935, $279; E 945, $299; E 903, $289.
