sE Electronics have announced a new small-diaphragm condenser microphone. The sE8 is the most recent in a line of pencil condenser models from the company, which began 15 years ago with the sE1. Most noticeably this model features a new backplate design that is purported to both improve its transient response and result in a more overall balanced sound.
The sE8 has interchangeable capsules as well as a pad which can switched between -10 and -20dB, as well as a switchable 80 or 160Hz hi-pass filter. The sE8 will be available individually or as a matched pair.
sE Electronics are distributed in Australia through Sound & Music.
