NAMM 2021 – V SERIES Drum Microphones
sE’s V SERIES drum microphones have found great success in live and studio environments since their introduction in 2019, having been seen on stage with some of the world’s biggest artists, including Brian Fraiser-Moore (Justin Timberlake), Derrick Wright (Adele), Daniel Erlandsson (Aborted), and many more.
The V SERIES FOR DRUMS were developed closely with artists and engineers specializing in everything from touring to working in studio environments and everything in between. Eddie Mapp (FOH of Evanescence, Christina Aguilera and many more), played an essential role throughout the development of the V SERIES drum mics and breaks down his experience working with sE on this ambitious project.
The V KICK:
Unbeatable punch & impact, with four custom voicings to cover any sonic need.
The V KICK is the most compact and versatile drum microphone in its class, intended for use with kick (bass) drums or other large drums where low-frequency energy is of the utmost importance. Its integrated swivel joint allows for any required mic placement, and its specialized supercardioid capsule provides a sound character tailored specifically for kick drums, which can be further shaped with the use of two voicing and high-frequency character switches on the rear side of the microphone. From warm and classic to modern and punchy, the V KICK gives you any kick drum sound you need.
The V BEAT:
Superior isolation & effortless sonics, all with minimal footprint & maximum flexibility.
The V BEAT is an ultra-compact dynamic microphone intended for use with snare or tom drums. Its specialized capsule provides a highly detailed, extremely natural sound character on snares or toms of any size, with amazing off-axis rejection to minimize bleed from nearby drums and cymbals. Its space-efficient design and parallel XLR connector & stand mount give it the smallest footprint in its class, and its rock-solid swivel mount allows its angle to be adjusted with great precision – so it can be aimed at almost any part of the drum head to achieve whatever sound character is required.
THE V CLAMP:
The perfectly compact companion for all your drum mic mounting needs.
