sE Electronics sE7 Small-Diaphragm Condenser Microphone

Capture instruments in pristine clarity with this compact pencil condenser. An outstanding value, the sE7 offers a switchable 80 Hz low cut and -20 dB pad.

The sE Electronics sE7 is a high-quality back-electret small-diaphragm condenser microphone intended for a wide range of studio and live sound applications, from acoustic guitars to pianos to drums and beyond.

With an optimized acoustic design, discrete class-A circuitry and a transformerless output, it delivers clear, natural sound quality at all frequencies, without suffering from fizzy highs or a lack of low-frequency punch.

Get a closer look at the sE7 pencil condenser in this video from sE Electronics:

The discrete electronics and the switchable attenuation pad ensure a high dynamic range, with high sound pressure level (SPL) handling capability and extremely low-noise components.

The switchable low-cut filter helps eliminate rumble or footfall noise, and can also compensate for an excess of bass frequencies caused by the proximity effect. This enables the sE7 to close-mic many instruments including electric guitar speaker cabinets, brass instruments and drums.

Reliable operation even in demanding on-stage applications in difficult environments is ensured by the roadworthy all-metal design, robust construction, and high-quality manufacturing standards.


- High-quality condenser capsule
- The sE7's specialized capsule is designed for natural, balanced sound quality, with an ultra-thin diaphragm for excellent transient response. Its cardioid polar pattern also makes it ideal for most studio or stage applications, delivering great sound for almost any read more source.

- The quietest pencil mic in its class
- With a very short signal path and state of the art electronics, the sE7 is the quietest microphone in its class. The transformer-less design ensures pristine sound quality, reproducing instruments with excellent clarity and depth.

- Switchable pre-attenuation pad
- The switchable -20dB attenuation pad prevents overloading your preamp or mixer and provides extended dynamic range, enabling close-mic techniques for even the loudest sources like brass instruments and snare drums.

- Switchable low-cut filter
- The integrated 80Hz low-cut filter helps to eliminate low-frequency rumble or footfall noise, or to compensate for excessive bass (proximity effect) with close-mic techniques.

- All-metal housing and premium finish
- The sE7's all-metal chassis provides efficient rejection of any electrical interference and noise, and its high-quality finish ensures a great look for years to come.

- Gold-plated XLR connector
- The corrosion-free XLR contacts ensure a loss-free, reliable signal connection for years and years and years and...

- Standard accessories
- The sE7 comes complete with a windscreen to avoid wind noise and a robust mic clip with thread adapter to fit with any mic stand.
