USA - sE Electronics is presenting two microphones at the AES Show in New York - an updated version of sE2200 and the V7 X, a dynamic microphone with a specialized aluminum voice coil intended for a wide range of instrumental applications. sE will also be showcasing their newest small-diaphragm condenser, the sE8, and the V7 MC1, the wireless version of their acclaimed V7 dynamic.
sE states, “Given the revered status of its predecessors, we’ve remained true to our original hand-crafted capsule design for the sE2200, custom-built transformer and class-A discrete circuit topologies – so it still has the sound of the mics loved by a whole generation of engineers.” Previous versions were made famous through use with world-class vocal recording artists like Amy Winehouse, and still remain a standard in mic lockers around the world.”
The V7 X is a brand-new sibling to sE’s V7 handheld dynamic, highly regarded for its high-fidelity sound and superior off-axis rejection. While the V7 is intended for vocals, the V7 X’s specialized capsule’s aluminum voice coil and acoustic design have been specifically tailored for instrumental use, with a lowered resonance and extended frequency response providing a “perfectly natural balance of detailed highs and deep, clear lows”. The V7 X is intended for use on snares, toms, electric & acoustic guitars, brass instruments, and more.
