AES sees new stage and studio mics from sE
New for this year’s AES Show, which opened in New York this week, sE Electronics has announced two microphones: an updated version of its sE2200, their classic condenser that put sE on the map, and the V7 X, a dynamic microphone with a specialised aluminium voice coil intended for a wide range of instrumental applications.
The sE2200 is an updated and refined version of sE’s classic sE2200a and sE2200a II C microphones – the first condensers to put sE Electronics on the map almost 15 years ago. Utilising the same handcrafted capsule, discrete class-A circuitry and custom transformer as the previous versions, the new sE2200 is said to offer improved clarity, lower noise, new pad and filter options to increase versatility, and the fit and finish has been updated with sE’s latest manufacturing techniques – but the company points out that the sE2200 ‘retains all the classic sound of the originals’.
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 specialised capsule’s aluminium voice coil and acoustic design have been specifically tailored for instrumental use, sE says, 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.
