"The stunning part of the sE mics (besides the superb construction that facilities immensely the perfect placement on any sized drum), is the fact that that you absolutely need no adjustments in getting a modern super clean and accurate drum set sound, by using the mics straight out of the box."

"I was first introduced to sE V BEAT mics, via a studio session, and since then I never use anything else on my snare and toms."
