Gemini II

You have to listen to this mic... it’s like nothing you’ve ever heard, and with good reason… it has a completely unique design! The Gemini is a single cardioid pattern mic which is simply awesome on vocals and acoustic guitars. The fist tube gives the kind of colouration you’d expect on a good tube mic.

The second acts in place of a transformer (the Gemini is transformerless).
The end result is a mic which is truly the best of both tube and solid state sound, and like no other mic on the market.

A natural partner with electric guitars and as drum overheads but ribbons are also popular for open, realistic vocals.

 sE Electronics RNR1, the definitive ribbon mic

Buy Now Buy Now


This is our very best Ribbon mic. It has won huge critical acclaim, being touted by the press and professionals alike as the best Ribbon mic on the market today, and yet at no where near the cost of some of the other high end brands. What makes it so special is its extended HF and LF response, so that it maintains all the character of the best Ribbons around, but extends the use of the mic beyond the normal niche of guitars and the odd vocal.

With this ribbon you can record anything from lead vocals, to piano, drums and percussion, guitars, brass and woodwind etc etc and get the most natural reproduction of the instrument you will ever hear.

 sE Electronics USB2200a, USB Condenser microphone

Buy Now Buy Now


Based on our industry standard sE2200a, this is a USB mic with several key differences to some of the cheap competitor mics coming onto the market. For a start it is switchable from USB to standard 48V phantom powered analogue, so you can use it as a true studio condenser. It also has zero latency headphone monitoring built in, so you can use it on the road with a laptop and don’t even need an audio interface.

The quality is also stunning compared with its rivals… by far the best USB mic available today. Like the 2200a its primary function is for recording studio
vocals and acoustic guitars, but it’s versatile enough to use on just about any source material, unless you have a specific requirement for multiple patterns
(e.g. overhead Omni).
