Grab A Bargain!

This is your opportunity to grab yourself a bargain.

While the microphone is in perfect working order, the box shows signs of wear and tear.

To reflect this, we've dropped the price so you can get an amazing deal.

At this price, the RN17 microphone is going to sell out fast so buy now before you miss out.


SE Electronics RN17 Rupert Neve Condenser Microphone Highlights

  • Premium-quality, small-diaphragm pencil mic
  • Large-scale hand-wound transformers
  • Designed by Rupert Neve
  • Detailed and forward midrange, with full and accurate lows
  • Matte black finish
  • Ships with custom shock mount

Large-Scale Transformer

Made obvious by the unusual chassis shape, the RN17's transformer is substantially larger than the norm.

This full-scale transformer was custom-designed by Rupert Neve specifically for this microphone - and nobody has been designing audio transformers longer (or better) than Rupert Neve.

Additional Capsules

Interchangeable capsules give this mic the versatility for use in both the home and studio environment.

The RN17 ships with a cardioid capsule, but the wooden box has room for additional capsules in the form of omni, cardioid cut, hypercardioid, and figure-8.

These capsules can be utilized for enhanced room sound (omni), low frequency control (cardioid cut) greater side rejection (hypercardioid), or mid-side recording techniques (figure-8).
