Based upon the award-winning cardioid condenser microphone that put sE Electronics on the map, the sE Electronics sE2300 Condenser Microphone gives you smooth polished vocal sounds and has countless instrumental applications. Loved by a generation of engineers, the sE2300 remains true to the original design, with a custom-built transformer and Class-A circuit topologies. This version of the microphone features a switch that allows you to change the polar pattern of the mic, making it suitable use on almost any source.
Handcrafted Capsule Construction
The sE2300 is unique in that it has options for cardioid, figure 8 or omnidirectional polar patterns, ensuring that you get the best possible acoustic performance from it no matter what you're micing up. Each capsule is hand-crafted and individually tuned at the sE factory in Shanghai and features a true, externally polarized condenser capsule, giving you the best performance possible no matter where you're recording.
Class-A Electronic Design
The design of the sE Electronics sE2300 Condenser Microphone ensures fantastic sound quality no matter your source. The sE2300's design does not use any integrated circuits so low noise, consistent performance and high sensitivity are staples of this mic, provided by state of the art mounted electronic components with tight tolerances. A custom-built output transformer revives the spirit of classic studio microphones and adds depth and weight to the sonic image, shielded within a metal housing to ensure noise-free operation.
The -10dB and -20dB pad switches extend your dynamic range, giving you plenty of variety with your mic techniques no matter how loud the instrument it. Whether it's a heavy-footed kick drum or chugging distorted guitar this mic can handle it. Coupled with the low cut filters selectable at 80Hz or 160Hz you get the option to eliminate footfall noise as well as compensate for any proximity effect when close-micing an instrument.
The all-metal housing with premium finish ensures the sE Electronics sE2300 will stand the test of time, with a gold-plated XLR connector for loss-free and reliable connection time after time. Also included with this microphone is an Isolation Pack, that contains sE's curved metal pop filter and reliable shock mount for outstanding performance.
