The sE5 Small Diaphragm Condenser Microphone from sE Electronics has been designed to improve upon the performance of the sE4 with a smooth, full-range frequency response and accurate transient handling. It is a suitable choice for recording drums, percussion, pianos and any stringed acoustic instrument.
Finished in matte black, the sE5 features a cardioid polar pattern, 100 Hz bass cut and -10/-20db pad switches. It also includes a custom shock mount so you're ready to capture high quality recordings straight out of the box.
Cardioid Polar Pattern
The sE5's cardioid polar pattern is designed to deliver a clean and smooth on-axis response, with off-axis rejection that's essential when recording the source instrument among unwanted noise sources such as other instruments or room ambience
100Hz Bass Cut
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
The two pad switches can be used if you're recording a very 'hot' or 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 attention drawn to the microphone when used on stage or in the studio, allowing it to blend into the background
Includes Custom sE5 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
