on the V KICK
“Mixing and matching settings of the two voicing switches can provide four distinct tonalities, each with a solid bottom but varying degrees of midrange, high-mid, and high frequency presence.”
“I typically supplement my inside kick mic with a large diaphragm FET mic placed out in front of the resonant head for extra low end punch (as I did for these recordings), but I didn't wind up using the FET mic for my mixes, as the V KICK provided all the low end, body, and clarity that I needed.”
“Every drummer I recorded was pleased with their kick sound, and a few asked specifically about my setup – the V KICK really made me look like I knew what I was doing!”
“…I would suggest this mic to anyone in need of a new kick mic.”

“On close-mic'd snare, this broad low end boost really brought out the depth of the drum…in mixing, I found I could easily dig out the tones I needed.”
“While the sE mics output an almost identical level to an SM57, the transient response of the sE is better, which gives the sE mics a more lively and dynamic sound. Additionally, the sE mics respond well to slight changes in position, so I could dial in large changes of low end girth.”
sE Electronics is now shipping the V7 Chrome, a new version of their acclaimed V7 dynamic vocal microphone in a high-polish chrome finish.
“The V7 Chrome features the same custom aluminum voice coil, patented internal shock-mount, high feedback rejection and class-leading sound as its V7, V7 MC1 and V7 MC2 siblings – seen on stages worldwide with artists including Justin Timberlake, Billie Eilish, Chris Stapleton, Kenny Chesney, Common, Evanescence, In Flames and many more – but with a special chrome-plated finish that really makes it stand out for vocalists looking for extra ‘flash’ on stage,” says sE.
The V7 Chrome is now available worldwide for $139 USD MSRP / $119 USD MAP / €119 EUR SRP. It ships with a black internal windscreen installed plus a spare red internal windscreen, a zippered storage pouch, a mic stand thread adapter and a custom sE mic clip.
