sE Electronics V Beat Dynamic Drum Microphone
The sE Electronics V Beat Drum Mic is the most compact drum microphone in its class, intended for use with snare or tom drums. Unlike the V7, which is optimized for vocals, the V BEAT features the same high-grade sonic performance as the V7 X instrument dynamic, but in a dedicated low-profile & drum-friendly form factor. Tuned for instrumental use, it can also be used on sources such as electric guitar speaker cabinets or brass instruments. 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 ultra-compact 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.
Compact, flexible, and minimalist design
The V BEAT utilizes an extremely low-profile mechanical design, with the XLR connector and stand mount integrated in parallel on the underside of the flexible swivel mount. This minimizes the V BEAT’s footprint, removes any cables from line-of-sight, and negates the need for any right-angle adapters or special cables. It also means there’s no danger of cables interfering with the drummer’s performance, as they are kept out of the way of cymbals and drum sticks alike.
The heart of the V BEAT: the DMC7 X capsule
The custom DMC7 X capsule offers the same technologies and features as its sibling within the acclaimed V7, including the innovative, specialized aluminum voice coil. While the V7 is optimized for vocals, the capsule in the V BEAT has been custom-tuned for instrumental use. With aluminum being a much lighter material than the industry standard (copper), it delivers an open and transient-rich sound, with deep and clear lows for stellar performance. The midrange is also extremely balanced, supporting the natural resonances of percussive instruments.
The excellent off-axis rejection of this sophisticated capsule also helps isolate your drums from other sound sources on the stage - efficiently reducing stage bleed and spill from other drums, cymbals and more. The supercardioid pattern also allows you to easily tailor the bottom-end by adjusting the proximity effect – i.e. distance to the drum head.
Proven Neodymium magnets, tight production tolerances and high workmanship ensure excellent sensitivity, high-end sound quality and superb consistency.
