SE Electronics SE5 Pencil Condenser Microphone

Availability In Stock


Picking up from the immensely successful SE4 condenser mic, the SE5 comes as a welcome replacement. Redesigned completely from the capsule to the XLR input. The SE5 truly sets the standard for small diaphragm microphones and with a price as competitive as the SE5 its easy to see why these microphones took off.

The SE5 is a high spec condenser microphone with a small footprint.

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.

The sE5's 100Hz bass cut can be applied to decrease the level of proximity effect, which is typical behavior in cardioid pattern microphones if placed very close to the sound source, or to isolate from low frequency rumble from other sources.
