SE Electronics Gemini II Tube Condenser Microphone

Dual Tube Cardioid Condenser Microphone with Shockmount and Case

The SE Electronics Gemini II dual valve microphone is sE Electronics ultimate design. A no holds barred piece of microphone history. The dual valve design means pure valve warmth from the 12AX7 input valve coupled with a 12AU7 valve on the output stage in place of the traditional transformer. The result is an incredibly large detailed and intimate sound reminiscent of the classic valve microphones from decades ago, but with all of the top end you'd normally associate with the best solid state mics on the market.

The Gemini II now has a 10dB pad and bass cut, a hand built, brushed Aluminium PSU and lower s/n ratio than its predecessor. If you are after something that extra bit special you really must hear this microphone. Prepare to be amazed.

Dual-Tube Design

Most microphones use a transformer to optimize the mic's output impedance and couple the mic to the mic preamplifier. With the Gemini II, this optimization is accomplished with a second vacuum tube, negating any high-frequency rolloff typically incurred with a transformer.

This provides the Gemini II with a sparkling, pristine high-end typically only found in the most expensive solid-state microphones, while maintaining the rich, thick tonality of a tube mic.

Handcrafted Capsule

The Gemini II has a 1/4” capsule that is handcrafted and individually tuned in SE's very own factory.

Thanks to a larger-than-life capsule, true condenser technology and ultra-precision parts, the Gemini II delivers a massive sound right out of the box. In addition, the Gemini II’s hand-made metal housing and gold-sputtered diaphragms, ensure maximum reliability in any and all sonic settings.
