As with all of SE Electronics factory-matched pairs, every mic ending up in a SE Electronics SE8 Matched Pair configuration is hand-selected from hundreds of individual microphones.

This ensures identical performance and the highest possible mic-to-mic consistency, so you can rest assured that your stereo image will be as clear & accurate as possible.

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 SE Electronics SE8 is ready for any sounds you’re making, whether in the studio environment or demanding on-stage applications.

  • 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

  • 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

SE Electronics SE8 has 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 SE Electronics 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.

The SE Electronics sE8 also comes standard with a newly-designed mic clip that will securely attach it to any mic stand.

This product is covered by a 2 year manufacturer warranty.

Although we are not authorised to determine if any repair is covered under warranty, if the item was purchased through World of Music, then we are often the best people to facilitate the claim for you and will do so as timely as possible. Warranty does not apply to cosmetic damage or faults that are a result of user neglect. Although your mate is really handy with a soldering iron, any product modification or home repair will also result in a void warranty.

Quite often, something perceived as a fault is as simple as a faulty cable or power issue so we always suggest checking over Frequently Asked Questions on the manufacturer website first. It can be a helpful approach to getting to the bottom of a problem and save you a lot of time in getting your gear back up and running!

This item ships via Australia Post; fully insured for your piece of mind. Orders require a signature on delivery and we suggest using an address where someone will be present for the speediest delivery time. For delivery attempts where no one is present, your order will be taken to your allocated Australia Post location for pickup.
