Fit for any challenges in the studio or on stage, the sE8 is a high-performance handcrafted small-diaphragm condenser, fresh from the labs at sE. Touting an updated all-metal hammered vintage housing, this limited-edition sE8 VE stereo pair offers a unique look and feel that represents true craftsmanship.

Its hand-made capsule implements a sophisticated backplate design that provides a perfectly balanced sound, so it's never harsh or aggressive - perfect for sources like high-hats and drum overheads.

As with all of our factory-matched pairs, every mic ending up in a sE8 Stereo Pair configuration is hand-selected from hundreds of individual microphones.

This ensures identical performance and the highest possible mic-to-mic consistency, so you can rest assured that your stereo image will be as clear & accurate as possible.
