Se electronics sE1a
Small-diaphragm Cardioid Condenser Microphone
With a hand-crafted capsule otherwise unheard-of at this price point, the sE1a helps sE blur the line between "affordable" and "professional" in a big way.
Great for strings, acoustic guitars and pianos, the sE1a uses a capsule built and tested by the same skilled technicians as the more expensive sE5 and Rupert Neve Signature RN17 SDCs, housed in a chassis alongside super-quiet electronics.
Even though the sE1a does not include any pads or roll-off switches - which helps keep costs down - you won't miss them. It can handle a massive 137dB sound pressure level, which is more than enough for the loudest drums and guitars. No frills, no switches...no need for them.
