TOMS

Toms require a mic that can deal with high SPLs at close range, but can capture all the fullness and warmth of a deep percussive hit plus the harmonics it generates.

Serious sound at an affordable price.

V7 X

"The V7 X has a weight and a thickness to the low-end; it’s really an excellent-sounding microphone, and it’s really efficient in the upper mids.”

- Andy Meyer, FOH Engineer (Justin Timberlake, Madonna, Guns N’ Roses, Rage Against The Machine) - sE Artist

The next step up for clarity and performance.

4400a

"I couldn't find anything that it couldn't cope with, and its ease of positioning for a large‑diaphragm model was a big plus."

"If you need a large‑diaphragm, multi‑pattern capacitor mic that's almost as easy to position as a small‑diaphragm pencil mic, the SE4400A, with its elegant shockmount, is a very practical choice in the mid‑priced section of the microphone market."

The best sound that money can buy.

T2

"The T2s sounded exactly like I hoped they would. Punch and beef on toms was the number one criteria, and they delivered. Just slight EQing in my API 560s and they were perfect."

- Chris Fogel, Scoring Engineer (The Wolf of Wall Street, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty) - sE Artist

Gemini II

"I used the thing on several orchestral elements at Sony scoring and it was outstanding on everything. It's the best tympani mic I've ever used, and I typically use well-maintained 47s or 49s. Really great."

- Chris Fogel, Scoring Engineer ('The Wolf of Wall Street', 'The Secret Life of Walter Mitty', 'Old School') - sE Artist
