sE Electronics sE8 Small Diaphragm Microphone

The sE Electronics sE8 Small Diaphragm Microphone is a brand new high-performance handcrafted small-diaphragm condenser microphone intended for a wide range of studio and live sound applications.

The sE Electronics sE8 Microphone's new hand-made capsule implements a sophisticated backplate design that provides a perfectly balanced sound, so it's never harsh or aggressive - perfect for sources like high-hats and drum overheads.

The sE Electronics sE8 is also one of the quietest small-capsule mics on the planet - and with the highest dynamic range and SPL handling in its class, along with attenuation pads and low-cut filters for superb flexibility, the sE Electronics sE8 is ready for any sounds you’re making, whether in the studio environment or demanding on-stage applications.

Thanks to its custom design, hand-crafted true condenser capsule, and transformerless output, the sE Electronics sE8 delivers pristine sound quality and an even, well-balanced frequency response.

Handcrafted True Condenser Capsule

The sE Electronics sE8's gold-sputtered diaphragms ensure maximum reliability. Handcrafted and individually tuned in sE Electronics factory, the capsule has an ultra-precision electrode design optimized for superb linearity and natural sonics. Ultra-thin 3 micron gold-sputtered diaphragm offers superior transients and newly-developed backplate design provides smooth, natural sound & truly consistent off-axis response. Sophisticated acoustic design with precision components, the sE Electronics sE8 avoids coloration in demanding applications.

The Quietest Pencil Mic in Its Class

The sE Electronics sE8 Microphone's sophisticated electronic design provides extremely low noise without the use of integrated circuits. Featuring transformerless design for excellent transparency and clarity, the sE Electronics sE8 incorporates proven Class-A circuitry to ensure a high dynamic range without distortion and brilliant transient response.

Two Switchable Pre-Attenuation Pads

The -10 dB and -20 dB pad switches provide extended dynamic range, enabling a wide range of applications and close-mic techniques for brass instruments, snare drums, and more.

Two Switchable Low-Cut Filters

Selectable at either 80Hz or 160Hz, these two filters help eliminate low-frequency rumble or footfall noise, as well as help compensate for excessive bass (proximity effect) with close-mic techniques.

Design & Finish

Unlike the cheaply constructed bodies of some small-capsule microphones, the sE Electonics sE8's all-metal chassis provides efficient rejection of any electrical interference and noise - and the high-quality finish and gold-plated XLR connector ensures a great look and a loss-free, reliable signal connection for years to come.

The sE Electronics sE8 Small Diaphragm Microphone also comes standard with a newly-designed mic clip that will securely attach it to any mic stand.
