From the sennheiserusa Instagram account, quoting Front of House Engineer for [The Black Keys](http://equipboard.com/band/the-black-keys) Jason M. Tarulli. Tarulli says: “I went for a combo of e 906 and [MD 421](http://equipboard.com/items/sennheiser-md-421-microphone) for Auerbach’s main guitar rig, with the 906 placed near the centre of the cone to get all the mid/hi-mid details plus the crunch and fuzz that comes from the Marshall amp and Fender guitar, and the (http://equipboard.com/items/sennheiser-md-421-microphone) placed midway or nearer to the outer edge of the cone to get the low-mid warmth" (Oct 2014)more
Reid’s guitar rig had a much more modern vibe than the other players on the tour. In addition to his signature Parker guitar and Roland processor, it featured a Mesa/Boogie Dual Rectifier with a matching 4x12 loaded with Celestion Vintage 30s and mic’d with Sennheiser e906 (left) and a Shure SM57 (right).more
Tame Impala used Sennheiser e609 at Lollapalooza Argentina 2016 and at Vorterix Sideshow 2016. In the video the mic can be seen at 0:15 in front of a Vox amp. In the following note: http://www.audiotechnology.com.au/wp/index.php/plugged-in-next-level-live-guitars/ Adam Round (Tame Impala sound engineer) says: “I’ve been mixing Kevin since early 2014 [...] I use a Sennheiser e906 mic on his cab. I find I get what I need out of most setups with a single mic.”more
I prefer the SM57 for guitar micing but to add more depth and bite to the signal the E906 is the best choice to my ear as a 2nd mic. It has got more focus on the high mids and gives high gain signals a really modern sounding response. Combined with the SM57 it's enables a good balance between the frequencies.
Very affordable, great sound and easy to setup. I use this one with with my Mesa Boogie combo at home and with an AC30 when I play live. It's like the new SM57 for guitar amps.
this thing is awesome, bought one through a friend. i use it for my acoustic live sometimes. sounds awesome infront of my bruno. sounds good even for vocals haha. did that once at a party. and this mic is even awesome in the studio. i love it.
