sE Electronics Introduces Two Microphones

sE Electronics has debuted two new microphones, an updated version of its sE2200 condenser and the new V7 X, a dynamic microphone for instrumental applications.

sE Electronics said the sE2200 offers the same handcrafted capsule, discrete class-A circuitry and custom transformer as the previous versions, but with improved clarity, lower noise, new pad and filter options. The mic will also have a new finish.

The V7 X has a specialized capsule aluminum voice coil and acoustic design specifically tailored for instrumental use. The aim is a lowered resonance and extended frequency response. The V7 X is intended for use on snares, toms, brass, electric and acoustic guitars.

Both new mics will ship within the U.S. in November, 2017. The sE2200 is priced at $299, while the V7 X is priced at $129.
