The sE8'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. 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 Stereo Pair is ready for any sounds you’re making, whether in the studio environment or demanding on-stage applications. "...they were reminiscent of some of the best condensers I've used, some much more expensive." - Mix Magazine, January 2018 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 PADS AND TWO LOW-CUT FILTERS The -10 dB and -20 dB attenuation pad switches provide extended dynamic range, enabling a wide range of applications and close-mic techniques for brass instruments, snare drums, and more. And the two low-cut filters, selectable at either 80Hz or 160Hz, help eliminate low-frequency rumble or footfall noise, as well as help compensate for excessive bass (proximity effect) with close-mic techniques. Why a handcrafted capsule? ...because they sound better that way. 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 almost unheard-of for affordable microphones, and is a great point of pride for us. The Factory-Matched Stereo Pair Hand-Selected Pairs As with all of our factory-matched pairs, every mic ending up in a sE8 Stereo Pair configuration is hand-selected from hundreds of individual microphones. Perfect Stereo Imaging & Accuracy This ensures identical performance and the highest possible mic-to-mic consistency, so you can rest assured that your stereo image will be as clear & accurate as possible. A Metal Case & High-Quality Accessories Each sE8 Matched Pair comes complete with a precision stereo mounting bar, two protective wind screens, two mic clips, and a robust high-quality metal flight case.
