sE Electronics X1 D Microphone

The sE Electronics X1 D Microphone is a dedicated drum microphone, bringing the renowned quality of the X1 series to a microphone designed for use on drums and percussion. With a super-fast titanium diaphragm ultra-responsive capsule, the X1 D is ideal for all your percussion needs.

The sE Electronics X1 D Microphone is perfect for kick drums, overheads, bass guitars, vibraphones, and pianos. The first microphone in the X1 series made specifically for instruments, the sE Electronics X1 D features a hand-crafted titanium-sputtered capsule - technology borrowed from sE Electronics high-end T2 Mic.

This titanium diaphragm is much stiffer than their gold-sputtered capsules, and this means much quicker transient response. This is especially important when recording instruments that create fast transients and attack - like drums and percussion - as it enables the sE Electronics X1 D Microphone to maintain clarity and deliver exceptionally accurate performance.

Additionally, the stiffness of the diaphragm allows the sE Electronics X1 D to withstand extremely high sound pressure levels (up to 140dB), so it won't be damaged by even the loudest percussive hits.

The sE Electronics X1 D is also well-suited to recording the hammer action of piano and bass, where the strings are often played with percussive techniques. The sE Electronics X1 D Microphone offers a cardioid polar pattern with great off-axis rejection, which is essential when recording only one element of a drum kit without wanting the sound of other elements to bleed into the signal.

On board the sE Electronics X1 D is a -10dB pad and a bass cut switch, which can help in situations where ultra-low frequency content might overwhelm the signal. The sE Electronics X1 D is constructed with integrated shock protection in the form of a built-in rubber capsule mount, which helps to isolate the capsule from knocks and vibrations.

The sE Electronics X1 D is also fitted with an integrated rear-mounted stand adapter for quickly and easily attaching it to a microphone stand.
