The e935s have arrived!

I'll give one of them a try for a lecture tonight.

Please, wish me luck.

BTW the dealer was not aware of a promotion next month on the e935. However, if they do drop in price he will happily refund us the difference for up to 90 days.

Cheers!

Wow,

AlecSP was right. The e935 is half price now, $99 CDN.

Fortunately the dealer has agreed to match the promotional price.

I'm very grateful that you pointed this out as I surely would have missed it.

Many thanks,

Peter

It's a great deal!

And even better for you. In the UK, it's GBP 83 - your price works out at GBP 60, which is a scream of a deal for the e935.

Its reduced price from Sennheiser in the UK is £83, down from £149. Which is the same price that Sennheiser are selling the e835.

It's not as huge of a deal if you consider that for you, I believe, taxes are included in the price. For us it is another 13%. It's still excellent value, and I am enjoying the mics. I'm also looking forward to getting that pair of e614s. I'll use them on the piano for an upcoming big band concert.

Bob, any tips for eq/shelving for the e614 on a 9 foot Steinway?

Many thanks,

Peter

Generally I’ll use them flat and wind off low end as necessary to compensate for proximity effect. On a loud stage, i.e. big band, you’ll need to position them quite close to the strings, as even though their pick up pattern is tight, there will be considerable bleed.

I’ve even seen one engineer (highly respected and assigned to NZ’s leading big band) mount pencil condensers using a foam ring into the holes in the frame of a Steinway D. That’s pretty extreme of course, but that band plays incredibly loud and at those levels, gain before feedback becomes an issue.

Let us know how you get on.
