Front End Audio frequently receives gear that has been deemed as less than perfect by the manufacturer and/or has been used by the manufacturer for demo purposes.

The sE Electronics Gemini II Tube Microphone is the larger-than-life answer to your vocal tracking needs. With dual valve design for pure valve warmth, the bass cut filter and -10dB pad, the Gemini II delivers an incredibly large, detailed, and intimate sound while maintaining the rich, thick tonality of a tube mic. The sE Electronics Gemini II Tube Microphone is not just large in stature - it's HUGE in sound. The sE Electronics Gemini II dual valve microphone is a no-holds-barred piece of microphone history. The dual valve design means pure valve warmth from the 12AX7 input valve, coupled with a 12AU7 valve on the output stage. The result is an incredibly large, detailed, and intimate sound – reminiscent of the classic valve microphones from decades ago, but with a thoroughly modern twist.

Dual-Tube Design
Most microphones use a transformer to optimize the mic's output impedance and couple the mic to the mic preamplifier. With the sE Electronics Gemini II, this optimization is accomplished with a second vacuum tube, negating any high-frequency rolloff typically incurred with a transformer. This provides the sE Electronics Gemini II with a sparkling, pristine high-end typically only found in the most expensive solid-state microphones, while maintaining the rich, thick tonality of a tube mic. Not just for vocals, the bass cut filter and -10dB pad make the sE Electronics Gemini II useful for loud and heavy sources like drum room mics and booming timpani.

Solid Flight Case
The sE Electronics Gemini II comes packaged in a wooden presentation box next to its custom shockmount and robust power supply, all within a secure and solid flight case.
