The V SERIES FOR DRUMS are officially WINNERS at the 36th Annual NAMM TEC Awards! We are incredibly proud, but we couldn’t have done it without YOU. Huge thanks to our extended sE family for putting us on the map; we’re just getting started!
The V KICK is the most compact and versatile drum microphone in its class, intended for use with kick (bass) drums or other large drums where low-frequency energy is of the utmost importance. Its integrated swivel joint allows for any required mic placement, and its specialized supercardioid capsule provides a sound character tailored specifically for kick drums, which can be further shaped with the use of two voicing and high-frequency character switches on the rear side of the microphone. From warm and classic to modern and punchy, the V KICK gives you any kick drum sound you need.
The V BEAT is an ultra-compact dynamic microphone intended for use with snare or tom drums. 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 space-efficient 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.
