Good dynamic

Bought it as an alternative to the sm 57. Good move. It is mellower sounding and a bit less forward. I have to experiment a lot but it is another flavour of good. Usually I position tge 609 and the 57 close to a guitar speaker plus other mics for cariety or room capture and even stereo techniques. Should happen the perfect take I have pre coocked options when mixing.
