  • "When recording, I use the sE5 pointing towards the sound hole or to the body of my guitar to get the percussive sound of my acoustic."

    — LJ Manzano (Guitarist, Composer, Singer-Songwriter)
  • "The sE5 gives me the exact clarity, full, rich and warm sound that I want. After years of searching and experimenting for the best recording mic, I found the sE5."

    — LJ Manzano (Guitarist, Composer, Singer-Songwriter)
  • "You can also pair the sE5 with a ribbon microphone if you want to add a different / more ambient sound to your guitar."
