ELECTRIC GUITAR CABINETS

An electric guitar cab is LOUD - so your mic needs to be able to handle super-high SPLs. It also needs to capture the raw edge of a guitar without becoming harsh or abrasive.

 
   BASIC
Serious sound at an affordable price.

The X1 R

"Electric guitar sounded great right away — I got pretty much what I was hearing in the room from the amp even before thinking about adding EQ. I award it full marks in this role."

- Paul White, Sound On Sound (full review)

The X1

"I also keep an sEX1 in my mic box...as a sort of "Swiss Army" mic. I've used it on guitar cabs, bass cabs, drum overheads, audience...it works on just about everything."

- Lance Reynolds, FOH (Alt-J) - sE Artist
