sE Electronics sE1A Condenser Mic Reviews

"The sE1a is a ridiculously inexpensive mic by professional standards, but it certainly doesn't look or feel cheap in any way. Would I recommend that you buy an se1A for recording instruments? The honest answer has to be no - you'd be mad not to buy a pair at this price!" SOS

"I absolutely loved them, and have used them as my overheads ever since. On acoustic guitar, they are very open-sounding. I placed one on the neck, and one on the body, just above the sound hole, and those two different sounds combined together were great." PAR

"The SE1a and SE2a are useful tools that represent terrific value for money." Resolution

"We have used the sE1s for pretty much everything: drum overheads for Billy Cobham, guitar mics for Amy Winehouse's guitarist, violins, even guitar amps on occasion when we have a very crowded studio!" Somethin' Else
