The SE Electronics SE5 Small Diaphragm Condenser comes from a long line of distinguished microphones dedicated to giving you the best possible recordings be it in the studio or at the gig. This powerful small condenser mic can capture every subtle nuance of your desired source, be it quiet acoustic performances right through to cranked guitar amps and drums.
Custom designed capsule
The polar pattern of the SE5 condenser is designed to deliver a smooth on-axis response with off-axis rejection so that you can get up close and personal with your desired source but without unwanted room ambiance or other noise sources becoming a problem.
The handy 100Hz bass cut filter also means that you can reduce the proximity effect and cut out any "rumbling" that can occur with movement of air when a mic is placed close to an instrument or sound source. This is also a big help when recording outdoors or in a windy environment.
Simple yet dynamic
The SE5 Small Diaphragm Condenser Mic is sensitive enough to capture the most elegant and subtle sound sources but there may be times you wish to record high pressure sound levels such as drums and guitar amps. For this, the SE5 includes a handy -10/-20dB pad switch so that you can still capture the full frequency spread of any instrument but without any clipping and with much more headroom to play with.
Included in the box with the SE5 is a custom shock mount designed to eliminate vibration or noise from anything that may knock on the mic stand, giving you precision recording without compromise. The mounting mechanism is also sprung for easy insertion and removal of the SE5.
The SE Electronics SE5 Small Diaphragm Condenser Microphone gives you absolute quality in a robust and lightweight housing at a very modest price, something that SE Electronics excel at and the SE5 is another great example of their passion for recording technology.
