Electro Voice 664 / EV664
- $10 per day
- Pickup Available from Brooklyn
Great vintage sound on electric guitars, bass drums and vocals. Almost like a very low-end RE-20.
Also, if you have a kick drum that is too boomy with your usual kick drum mics (M88 or 421 for me), try the 664 right up near the beater. It rolls off some of the Subbass but is still punchy.
They sold for $49.95 in 1962 and were a competitor to the Shure 545, a predecessor of the 57.
Normal wear and tear for a vintage piece. Solid mic. Sounds great.
