The sE Electronics sE 8 Small Diaphragm Condenser Microphone is designed to meet the demands of musicians and audio engineers, on stage or in the studio. Handcrafted at the sE Electronics labs it's a sophisticated design and one of the quietest small capsule mics on the planet.
The construction of the sE Electronics sE8 features gold-sputtered diaphragms to ensure infallible reliability with an ultra-thin 3-micron thick gold-sputtered diaphragm that guarantees superior transients capture. A gold plated XLR connector gives a great look and loss-free signal that will last for years. Alongside these appointments, you have ultra-precision electrode design for linearity and natural sonics as well as a newly developed backplate design that gives a smooth natural sound and consistent off-axis response.
Every sE Electronics sE8 Small Diaphragm Condenser Microphone capsule is handcrafted in the sE factories and individually tuned to ensure pristine sound capture and perfect performance. Its sophisticated design with precision components means you avoid colouration whether you're capturing acoustic guitar or drum cymbals and this sophistication gives you low noise without the use of integrated circuits or transformers. The Class-A circuitry works alongside the precision components to give you a high dynamic range without distortion.
The sE8 Small Diaphragm Condenser features two switchable pre-attenuation pads, with an option for -10dB and -20dB to provide you with a wide dynamic range for various applications, so if you want to close-mic brass, snare drums or more this mic can handle it. With two low-cut filters at either 80Hz or 160Hz, you can eliminate any low-frequency rumble that can occur during recording sessions. Whether it's footfall noise or the proximity effect when using close-mic techniques these switches make sure you get a clean take no matter what instrument you're recording.
With it's all metal housing and premium features the sE Electronics sE8 Small Diaphragm Condenser is suitable for a host of situations. It comes with a microphone clip with thread adaptor and a windscreen so you're good to go.
