SE Electronics sE5 Condenser Microphone SE Electronics sE5 Condenser Microphone

SE Electronics sE5 Condenser Microphone

The sE5 is the latest and best incarnation of our sE small-diaphragm microphone series. We've listened to our users' opinions and added more of what you need, and less of what you don't!

Introducing the sE5, our newest small-diaphragm condenser microphone. We've taken the sE5's predecessor, the sE4, and redesigned it from the capsule right through to the chassis. sE5 sets the new standard for small diaphragm microphones at its price, and is perfect for studio and live use.

The sE5 improves upon the high-quality performance of the sE4 with a smooth, full-range frequency response and excellent transient handling. It is the perfect choice for recording drums, percussion, pianos and any stringed acoustic instrument.

Finished in matte black, the sE5 features a cardioid polar pattern, 100Hz 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 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

The sE5's 100Hz bass cut can be applied to decrease the level of proximity effect, which is typical behaviour 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’ 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.

Available as a Pair

The sE5 is also available as the sE5 Stereo Pair.

Telefunken M80 Dynamic Supercardioid Microphone Telefunken M80 Dynamic Microphone

Telefunken M80 Dynamic Supercardioid Microphone

Dynamic Microphone with Supercardioid Pickup Pattern that delivers condenser-like performance in a rugged dynamic design, making it equally suitable for both on stage and in studio use.

The TELEFUNKEN M80 dynamic cardioid microphone was designed to to give the user a superior alternative to the midrange-laden character of the many other dynamic mics. Featuring a wider frequency response and higher SPL capabilities the M80 delivers condenser-like performance in a rugged dynamic design, producing a microphone equally suitable for on both the stage and in the studio.

Sonic Characteristic

Due to its low mass capsule and super thin (yet surprisingly rugged) capsule membrane the M80 presents a wider range of emotion from a live vocal with an intimacy that has been traditionally reserved for studio quality condenser microphones. The head and capsule assembly has been designed to reduce proximity effect to which nets added low end clarity for vocals, while still providing "strength" and "authority" and an "open," "airy" character without adding danger of upper midrange feedback or "honk."

Circuit Design

The M80 features an American made custom wound impedance matching transformer which is where the magic really takes place. When coupled with our proprietary capsule assembly, the results have won hearts and minds in far less time since it's introduction than we ever imagined possible.

Construction

Featuring a rugged black powder coat body and head-turning chrome plated headgrille, the M80 is built for the high demands of a touring vocal mic.

Telefunken M81 Dynamic Supercardioid Microphone

Rugged, Universal Dynamic Microphone with supercardioid pickup pattern, flat frequency response and exceptional midrange clarity make it great for brass, toms, and guitar amps on the stage and in the studio.

The TELEFUNKEN M81 dynamic microphone has been designed with the goal to not only complement the M80, TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik's first dynamic offering, but to also stand out in a universe filled with dynamic microphone options. When the M80 was first introduced in 2008, it quickly became a favorite in both live and studio environments. Its clear and detailed top end, articulate mid-range, and minimal proximity effect won the hearts (and ears) of thousands of new users, making it a staple for vocal and snare drum applications, as well as the most popular microphone in the TELEFUNKEN product line.

Sonic Characteristic

Building off many of the strengths of the M80, the TELEFUNKEN M81 retains the same minimal proximity effect, superior feedback rejection, and articulate mid-range. However, with the M81, the top end is pulled back a bit, yielding a flatter overall frequency response. This combination results in a microphone with a wealth of body and clarity, making it a great tool for taming brighter vocals and guitar tones and for fattening up percussion, horns and thinner sounding sources.

Circuit Design

The TELEFUNKEN M81's tailored frequency response makes the microphone exceptional on electric guitars, percussion, rack and floor toms, and brass instruments. This microphone's wide range of uses and rugged reliability make it the workhorse for the new generation.

Construction

Finished in the same flint gray body tube and tri-chrome head grill styling as the R-F-T AR-51, the M81 is readily identifiable when reaching for the microphone. The M81 was very much designed with the AR-51 in mind. Great care was taken to tune the M81's overall response to be complimentary to the AR-51 when recording electric guitars.

Royer Labs RSM-SS1 Sling-Shock Microphone Shock Mount Royer Labs RSM-SS1 Sling-Shock Microphone Shock Mount

Royer Labs RSM-SS1 Sling-Shock Microphone Shock Mount

The Royer RSM-SS1 Sling-Shock™ is a revolutionary departure from traditional shock mount designs. The Sling-Shock is hand-built in Burbank, CA facility using only the finest materials. Royer done away with the rubberized parts and elastic cords, producing a durable shock mount that gives superior isolation from vibrations.

The proprietary system of non-resonant nylon cable and damped steel springs acts to isolate the microphone from vibrations induced from the microphone stand. These vibrations can appear as rumble and/or low-grade noises which create disturbances across the bandwidth, from low end thumps to harmonic disturbances at different frequencies. The Sling-Shock's superior vibration-reduction capabilities and lack of self-resonance allow engineers to capture performances free of vibration-related interference across the bandwidth.

The Sling-Shock RSM-SS1 is sized to fit Royer's 1-inch diameter R-121, R-122, R-122V, SF-1 and SF-12 ribbon microphones. Any cylindrical microphone measuring approximately one inch in diameter (+/- 1/8 inch) will work with the model RSM-SS1. The RSM-SS24 accommodates Royer SF-2, SF-24 and SF-24V microphones.

RSM-SS1 Sling Shock Features:

  • Superior isolation from vibration and shocks
  • Felt-lined, scratch-free microphone chamber holds mic securely
  • No rubberized parts to degrade or stretch
  • Flexible for easy microphone positioning
  • Lifetime warranty

Microphone Cable Clip

Low-level vibrations can be transferred through the mic cable and into the microphone. Incorporated into the sling-shock's design is a microphone cable clip. This feature is highly effective at further reducing vibrations from being coupled to the microphone through the microphone's cable.

The sE2200a II Cardioid or as it is noted on the microphone itself sE2200a II C replaces the best-selling and multi-award winnning sE2200a large diaphragm condenser mic from sE Electronics.

The sE2200a II Cardioid is the single pattern version of the recently launched sE2200a II Multi-Pattern (this mic was launched at Winter NAMM 2012 and has replaced the Z3300a in the sE Electronics family). So why change the classic sE Electronics sE2200a mic which has been used on so many classic tracks and albums such as Amy Winehouse's 'Back To Black'? The sE2200a was Amy's main vocal mic.

The simple is answer is that we haven't (significantly) - the sE2200a classic sound remains. The sE2200a II C features the same custom, hand-crafted 1" gold-sputtered diaphragm as the first generation sE2200a. The sE2200a II Cardioid features a low cut bass filter, 10dB pad and comes complete (for a limited period) with our new universal, black shockmount.

Many recording engineers have told us that they prefer the black, rubberised texture of our new mics so the sE2200a MK2 has been given a face lift with sE's custom black rubber paint finish, which is both stylish and practical, helping to damp chassis resonance which many competitor microphones suffer from.

The sE 2200a II C is the latest in sE Electronics’ lineage of sE2200 condenser mics dating back to the year 2000 (sE2200 > sE2200a > sE2200a II). It is highly unusual for a microphone series at this price point to be used in so many professional studios, and at such a high level... that's because, like all of our mics, the sE2200a and now the sE2200a II Cardioid, have been built to the standards you'd expect from the top 'boutique brands' like Neumann, but cost only the same as the mass-automated produced microphones from other well-known brands. Whether you need the flexibilty of a sE2200a II Multi Pattern or the sE2200a II Cardioid, you won't regret purchasing the UK's best selling condenser mic for the last 10 years.

        SE Electronics 2200a II Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone

        The sE2200a II Multi-Pattern uses a hand-crafted, 1″ gold sputtered diaphragm, based on the original sE 2200a capsule, but a ‘back-to-back’ version which allows for multiple polar patterns (Cardioid, Figure of 8, Omni). The multi-pattern sE2200a MKII has been designed in response to feedback from many current 2200a users who love recording with the mic and have asked for a multi-pattern version. The mic has also been given a face-lift with sE’s new custom black rubber paint finish, which is both stylish and practical, helping to damp chassis resonance which many competitors’ microphones suffer from.

        The sE2200a II has a low cut filter, 10dB pad and a rugged aluminum shock mount (with built-in pop screen).
