Sennheiser is introducing the e 602 II ($289) cardioid dynamic microphone, the successor to the e 602, to their lineup of evolution Series microphones. The e 602 II is designed especially for use with kick drums, bass-guitar cabinets, tubas and other low-frequency instruments.
Featuring a more robust, lightweight aluminum housing—more than 40 percent lighter than its predecessor—the e 602 II allows for greater stability when positioning the microphone on a long boom arm. The shock-mounted capsule offers a fast attack coupled with an extended low-frequency response, enabling the e 602 II to provide smooth, deep and clear reproduction of bass instruments for sound reinforcement and recording applications.
The e 602 II features lightweight, high-performance voice-coil construction, a shock-mounted capsule, fast transient response and extended low-frequency response. The mic is designed for use on the most problematic bass signal sources, and its frequency independent directivity provides isolation from other onstage signals.
Housed in a rugged, lightweight, aluminum body, the e 602 II features a hum-compensating coil to help eliminate electrical interference, an integrated stand-mount and protective pouch.
Sennheiser will exhibit at InfoComm 2006 in booth #2279 from June 3 through June 9 in Orlando, Florida. For more information, visit www.sennheiserusa.com.
