The sE Electronics SE5 is a versatile small-diaphragm condenser microphone that can produce great results in both live and studio applications. Coming from a heritage of iconic small-diaphragm condensers such as the sE4, the sE5 now boasts a completely revamped design from the capsule right through to the XLR connector. The sE5 certainly represents excellent value for a small diaphragm microphones at this price. Exhibiting a full-range frequency response, the sE5 is a great choice for drums, percussion, piano and any stringed acoustic instrument.
When purchased as a pair, the capsules are factory-matched for perfect tolerance, guaranteeing the best possible stereo image.
This configuration also includes a precision stereo mounting bar, and the whole setup comes packaged inside a secure flight case that's ready for the road.
The sE5's cardioid polar pattern delivers a clean and smooth on-axis response, with off-axis rejection that's essential when recording the source instrument in-situ among unwanted noise sources such as other instruments or room ambience.
100Hz BASS CUT FILTER
The sE5's 100Hz bass cut can be applied to decrease the level of proximity effect, which is typical behavior in cardioid pattern microphones if placed very close to the sound source, or to isolate from low-frequency rumble from other sources.
-10dB / -20dB PAD
The two pad switches can be used if you're recording a very ‘hot’ (loud) signal. For miking up loud sound sources such as drums or a guitar cabinet, the -10dB or -20dB settings will reduce the level output from the microphone to the connected microphone preamp, ensuring a high-quality signal is delivered.
MATTE BLACK FINISH
The matte black finish minimizes the level of visual attention drawn to the microphone when used on stage or in the studio, allowing it to blend into the background.
CUSTOM SHOCK MOUNT
Every sE5 includes a custom-designed shock mount in the box, which is essential in use to reduce the unwanted effects of vibration or knocks to the supporting microphone stand. The mounting mechanism is sprung, for quick and easy insertion or removal of the mic.
