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.


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.
