The SE5 is a full upgrade of the extremely popular SE4 but actually lends itself back to the SE3. The SE5 is a small diaphragm microphone with a fixed cardioid polar pattern. These microphones are hand crafted with immaculate attention to detail which is just unheard of at this price point.
Matching set of SE5 condenser microphones for recording in uncompromisingly clear stereo.
When purchased as a pair, the capsules are factory-matched for perfect tolerance, guaranteeing the best possible stereo image. This configuration also includes a precision stereo mounting bar, and the whole setup comes packaged inside a secure flight case that's ready for the road. 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. The two pad switches can be used if you're recording a very ‘hot’ (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.
