sE Electronics V Kick Dynamic Percussion Instrument Microphone for Drums & Bass

Primarily designed for kick drums, floor-toms, and electric bass, the sE Electronics V Kick is a dynamic microphone with a supercardioid polar pattern. It's intended to be quite versatile, with four different tonalities thanks to two switches mounted on the rear of the mic. One switch controls the frequency content of the midrange, while the other changes the high-frequency capture of the V Kick.

Thanks to these switches, you can secure a rounded midrange with a softer high end, a scooped midrange with a defined high end—or the complete opposite: A scooped midrange with a softer high-end, or a round midrange with a softer high end. This allows you to use the mic with all sorts of styles of kick drum, from big-band jazz to aggressive metal. The same is true for basses. You can tailor this mic for something that complements a round, vintage Ampeg tone, or a more modern back-pickup style.

These switches are positioned on the rear of the mic, and this helps with live-sound functionality. With different bands switching their instruments between sets, this mic can be of service in keeping changeover time to a minimum in club venues.

At the heart of the V Kick is its DMC7 SB capsule, which utilizes an aluminum voice coil for a transient-rich sound and a bottom end extending low enough to record the fundamental frequencies of kick drums and basses. Its supercardioid pickup pattern ensures little bleed, helping you isolate the sound-source from other drums or cymbals. The capsule is suspended inside the mic to keep it decoupled from mechanical vibration, shocks, jolts, and other issues.

The mic's all-metal housing is rugged, making the mic suitable for live use on the road. A gold-plated XLR connector helps to provide a reliable signal connection. With a windscreen built into the mic, it's already internally protected against winds, plosives, and extraneous noise. A black windscreen and a knurled nut for third-party mounting kits are included.

Designed for use with snare drums and toms, the sE Electronics V Beat is a dynamic, supercardioid microphone. It offers a low-profile design that attaches easily to the rim of drum heads. Not only does the mic provide a highly accurate, naturalistic audio capture—it also keeps cables out the drummer's line of sight and makes it easier for them to maneuver around the kit without fear of accidentally striking a mic head.

UPC: 819032011607sE Electronics V CLAMP Quick-Mounting Drum Mic Clamp

The sE Electronics V CLAMP is a mount designed to add more flexibility when mounting drum mics to drum heads, particularly those in the V BEAT series. The V CLAMP secures to the rim of a snare or tom drum by means of its elastic clip, while the cylindrical metal tube allows you to move attached V-Series microphones on a vertical plane. With the V CLAMP, you can position the mic further away from the drum if you want to get more air and bloom around the sound, or mic it in tight and close. At the bottom of the rod is a small hole, which you can use with a tie clip for cable organization.

UPC: 819032011584sE Electronics sE8 Small-Diaphragm Condenser Microphone

The sE Electronics sE8 is is a small-diaphragm condenser microphone with a hand-made, gold-sputtered cardioid capsule. Suitable for live and recording scenarios, the microphone has been engineered to provide a balanced, transparent, and natural sound, as well as a detailed transient response.

The sE8 boasts inherently low self-noise for capturing audio in particularly quiet situations. It also sports an SPL high enough to handle drums, and a dynamic range large enough to handle record triple-piano to triple-forte velocities accurately.

Two switchable pre-attenuation pads are on hand, should you encounter particularly loud sound sources; one will shave off 10 dB, while the other will attenuate 20 dB. You'll also note a switchable low-pass filter that rolls off low end at either 80 Hz or 160 Hz at 6 dB per octave.

To enhance durability—and to reject electrical interference and noise—the sE8 sports an all-metal chassis. The gold-plated, 3-pin XLR connector ensures signal reliability for a long time to come. Handcrafted and hand-tuned, microphone comes with a mic clip, a thread adapter, and a windscreen.
