Product# K40783
OVERVIEW

Small footprint, huge 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

Incredibly Quiet Pencil Mic
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 -10dB and -20dB pad switches provide extended dynamic range, enabling a wide range of applications and close-mic techniques for brass instruments, snare drums and more.

Two Switchable Low-Cut Filters
Selectable at either 80Hz or 160Hz, these two filters help eliminate low-frequency rumble or footfall noise, as well as help compensate for excessive bass (proximity effect) with close-mic techniques.

All-Metal Housing With Gold-Plated XLR Connector, Premium Finish & Accessories
Unlike the cheaply constructed bodies of some small-capsule microphones, the sE8's all-metal chassis provides efficient rejection of any electrical interference and noise – and the high-quality finish and gold-plated XLR connector ensures a great look and a loss-free, reliable signal connection for years to come.

The sE8 also comes standard with a newly designed mic clip that will securely attach it to any mic stand.
