The sE8 – small in stature, huge in sound. Fit for any challenges in the studio or on stage, the sE8 is a brand new high-performance handcrafted small-diaphragm condenser, fresh from the labs at sE. Its 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 is ready for any sounds you’re making, whether in the studio environment or demanding on-stage applications. 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 PRE-ATTENUATION PADS The -10 dB and -20 dB pad switches provide extended dynamic range, enabling a wide range of applications and close-mic techniques for brass instruments, snare drums, and more.
