Fit for any challenges in the studio or on stage, the sE8 is a high-performance handcrafted small-diaphragm condenser that is small in stature, huge in sound.

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 hi-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 sE8 is ready for any sounds you’re making, whether in the studio environment or demanding on-stage applications.

The sE8 is equipped with two switchable pre-attenuation pads and two switchable low-cut filters. 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. Selectable at either 80Hz or 160Hz, the two switchable low-cut filters help eliminate low-frequency rumble or footfall noise, as well as help compensate for excessive bass (proximity effect) with close-mic techniques.
