ACOUSTIC GUITARS

From the guitar body's deepest resonance to the fast, sharp attack of your pick, an acoustic guitar mic needs to clearly capture a wide range of frequencies.

 
   BASIC
Serious sound at an affordable price.

The X1 A (cardioid)

"The X1 A can convince you of its balanced frequency response, rich bass, unobtrusive yet present mids, as well as gentle highs...undoubtedly worth every cent of its low purchase price."

- Carsten Kaiser, Bonedo.de (full review, German)

sE8

“Sounds like a wickedly expensive high-end microphone...”

"The sound leaves no wish unanswered in any application."

4400a

"...just mount up an sE4400a and hit record." 

- Andy Hong, Tape Op (full review)

 

Voodoo VR2

"If you like the idea of a ribbon sound but find traditional ribbon mics a touch too dull, the Voodoos might just win you over."

- Paul White, Sound On Sound (full review)

The best sound that money can buy.

RNT (tube + Rupert Neve transformers)

"I've worked with the best microphones in the world, and this is one of them now. It's great."

- Simon Franglen, Composer / Producer ('Avatar', 'Titanic', 'Skyfall') - sE Artist

 

The RN17

"The RN17 is my new favorite small diaphragm condenser mic. It's incredibly detailed in the higher frequencies and has a weight in the lower mids that was traditionally compromised in pencil mics. I love it on acoustic guitar, piano, strings, percussion, and as a room mic on any source."

- John O'Mahony, Mixer / Producer (Vance Joy, Sarah Bareilles, Coldplay, Metric)  - sE Artist
