Show full description »

Every engineer loves the sound of condensers on kick drum but it's easy to get a little fearful when that might thump goes off near your precious mic. Well no need to worry any more as the X1D is tailor made to deliver all the transient detail and air or a condenser while being built brick tough.

Titanium Capsule: Custom designed and hand crafted Titanium-sputtered
capsule.  The  much  stiffer  Titanium  sputtering  means  that  the  capsule
membrane returns to its resting state incredibly quickly after responding
to transients compared to normal condensers. This in turn translates into
incredible percussive accuracy.

Cardioid Polar Pattern: Delivers  great  on-axis  response,  with  off-axis
rejection,  which  is  needed  when  recording  a  drum  as  part  of  a  kit  or  a
percussion section where it may be adjacent to the other instruments.
Integrated shock protection:The mic has a built in rubber capsule mount
for isolation, dispensing with the need for a bulky external shock mount.

Stand adapter: X1D  includes  a  side-mounted  stand  adapter  for  easily
fitting your mic to a mic stand.

140dB SPL dynamic range:Drums in particular can be loud and create very
fast transient sound waves. The sE X1D design enables this full dynamic
range  to  be  captured  with  ease  without  introducing  sonic  artifacts  that
could be caused if using inferior quality components.

80Hz Bass Cut:May be applied to decrease the level of proximity effect,
typical in cardioid pattern microphones when they are placed very close to
a sound source, or to isolate from low frequency rumble coming from other
sources such as kick-pedal to floor.

-10/-20 dB Pad: Useful when recording very loud signals the -10/-20 dB
Pad will reduce the output level from the microphone ensuring a high quality
signal  is  delivered  to  the  receiving  ancillary  equipment  in  the  recording

Three-year, zero-downtime free replacement limited warranty:
sE Electronics promises that should your product develop a fault within
three  years  of  registration  it  will  be  replaced  free  of  charge  with  a  new
replacement unit.

SE Electronics X1D Drum Condenser Microphone Reviews


Simply amazing

If you are looking for a superb mic for percussive instruments, then look no further.
The sE X1D is absolutely outstanding and it does punch above his weight in a massive way.
For a mic with such modest background, you can be sure that you can put it alongside names that will cost you easily 10 times more.
Very good frequency response, works well not only on bass drums, but also on bass, cajons and even piano.
Do yourself a favour and get one or two of these in your mic cupboard. You will not regret it.

Price Matching

Dolphin Music brings you the best music gear at the best price. We are committed to superior customer service and have extensive product knowledge. However, in today’s market we may not always be aware of all the price fluctuations of the products we sell. So, we offer competitive price matching.

Please fill in the following form to request a price match.

What prices we will match?

We will compare prices for new, direct from manufacturer items, excluding any add-ons, options, or other special features which may affect price.

The item must be new and must be the exact same make and model (ie, the same size, version, etc.).

Since our postage charges are lower than most of the shops, the comparison price must be a "delivered cost" to the consumer.

If we are unable to verify the previous condition, we will notify you that we require additional information to verify the Price Match request. Our goal is to make this policy simple and hassle-free. We are committed to responding to your requests quickly.

The price you have found must be the Internet Retailer's regular, advertised price for a current and available item. The price you found cannot be a closeout, discontinued, blemished, year-end, inventory reduction, or any other type of advertised sale price.

Price Matching requests may not be combined with any other promotional discounts, specials or other price incentives.

Prices and price sources you have found which do not meet the above criteria or in which incomplete or inaccurate information is provided to us, will not be approved for our Price Match.
