Product Highlights

Product Description

A handcrafted small-diaphragm condenser mic capsule, the sE8 is small in stature but huge in sound! Fit for any challenges in the studio or on stage, the sE8 is fresh from the labs at sE. Its 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.

It's 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 sE8 is ready for any sounds you’re making, whether in the studio environment or demanding on-stage applications.

sE Electronics SE8-CARD-CAP-PAIR Matched Pair of Mic Capsules Features
  • Handcrafted true condenser capsule
  • The quietest pencil mic in its class
  • Two switchable pre-attenuation pads, the -10 dB and -20 dB pad switches provide extended dynamic range
  • Two switchable low-cut filters, selectable at either 80Hz or 160Hz, these two filters help eliminate low-frequency rumble
  • Factory matched pair of cardioid pattern capsules
Handcrafted true condenser capsule:
    Gold-sputtered diaphragms ensure maximum reliability
    Every capsule is handcrafted and individually tuned in our very own factory
    Ultra-precision electrode design optimized for superb linearity and natural sonics
    Ultra-thin 3 micron gold-sputtered diaphragm for superior transients
    Newly-developed backplate design provides smooth, natural sound & truly consistent off-axis response
    Sophisticated acoustic design with precision components
    Avoids coloration in demanding applications
The quietest pencil mic in its class:
    Sophisticated electronic design provides extremely low noise without the use of integrated circuits

     Transformerless design for excellent transparency and clarity

    Proven Class-A circuitry ensures 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.

    As with all of sE's true condensers, the sE8’s gold-sputtered capsule is handcrafted and hand-tuned by skilled technicians in our own factory. This is highly unusual for mics at this price, and is a great point of pride for us.

    Building and tuning a capsule is a subtle, artistic process, and given the scale of the vibrations which they must perceive, this is the most vital element of the mic.
