Setting up Sennheiser E835 Mic

Contributor - Level 2

Hello,

I just bought three new Sennheiser E835 mics.  I was using Shure SM58 prior to the new purchase.  Is there anything special or peculiar to this mic I should know about?  I know with the Shure SM58 I was advised to pull the EQ curve down around the 200-250hz range.  Just wondering if anyone had any tips for this particular mic?

Thanks for any help.

Take care,

Willie

Hi @WilliamPanto 

 

I have 5 of these mics and used them a lot with the X32. Recently I've switched over to the Apex 515 condensers. For the most part I just set the low cut at about 130 hz, then ring out per monitors and adjust per inputs (vocals, etc.).

Thank you Paul for the input. I've used these mics at a couple of gig and people are telling me that the vovals seem much clearer with these mics.
Take care,

I would agree, if you are comparing them to the SM58. Of all of the mics I have, not one of them is an SM58.
