Review: sE Electronics sE4 Stereo Pair condenser microphones
Positives:built like tanks, full sound, big for a small diaphragm mic, great accessories, good price
These mics are awesome. Pro level small diaphragm condenser pair with great shockmounts, stereo bar, and excellent aluminum case for $699.
First thing you need to know is they are advertised as small diaphragm mics but they are pushing into medium diaphragm category. They are large, heavy and built like tanks!
Due to the diaphragm size they are full meaty and well rounded mics. Very full bottom end and smooth highs. They high pass switch and pad make these great drum overheads where they really shine. They are awesome on acoustic guitars, percussion and dont be afraid to try them on snare.
For the price they cant be beat and add the fact they have interchangeable capsules. I am very happy with these. Could easily be compared to the new SM 181 by shure.
