  • "I love sE mics all around my kit for live and studio work. Besides the V SERIES drum mics, which are killer, I really love the options for overhead mics and this is what separates sE from everyone else."

  • "For live shows, I use the 4400a, which are really crisp and capture the whole kit with a lot of clarity and punch. In the studio, I mainly use the VR1's which are some of the cleanest ribbon mics I've heard! They capture the kit and take a little edge off of the cymbals. All of these mics work unbelievably well together in a lot of different contexts."
