Inside the mic

  • V7-MC1-Image-Map-aspect-ratio-545-390

    INNOVATIVE, SPECIALIZED ALUMINUM VOICE COIL

    The DMC7 dynamic capsule in the V7 MC1 has been custom-developed for a crisp, open sound that perfectly captures your voice in the most natural way you’ve ever heard on stage – and its sophisticated supercardioid capsule design helps isolate your voice from other instruments, ensuring vast amounts of gain before feedback.

  • V7-MC1-Image-Map-aspect-ratio-545-390

    PATENTED INTEGRATED SHOCK MOUNT

    The V7 MC1’s innovative, patented shockmount efficiently decouples the capsule from mechanical vibration, providing exceptionally low handling noise as compared to other capsules in its class. This means you can feel free to move around on stage without fear of rumbles, pops, or anything other than your voice coming through.

  • V7-MC1-Image-Map-2-aspect-ratio-545-390

    ALL-METAL HOUSING & BEVELED SPRING STEEL GRILLE

    The V7 MC1’s road-ready design is all metal. The chassis’ high quality, highly durable zinc alloy is designed to withhold the wear & tear of day to day tour life for years and its beveled edge around the grille prevents your mic from rolling when you put it down – so simple, so effective.

  • V7-MC1-Image-Map-1-aspect-ratio-545-390

    INTERNAL WINDSCREEN & GOLD-PLATED CONTACTS

    Efficiently reduces unwanted wind noise and plosive pops….and in the unlikely case you should not appreciate our stylish “sE Red” color, we’ve included a spare black internal windscreen in the box for you. The V7 MC1’s gold-plated contacts ensure a loss-free and reliable signal connection for years to come.

  • V7-MC1-Black-and-Standard-1-aspect-ratio-545-390

    AVAILABLE IN TWO COLOR COMBINATIONS

    The V7 MC1 Standard and the V7 MC1 BLACK to complement Shure® transmitters. Both versions include red & black internal windscreens for additional customization.

Inside the Mic Grille

  • V7-MG-Image-Map-aspect-ratio-545-390

    BEVELED SPRING STEEL GRILLE

    The beveled edge around the grille is made to prevent your mic from rolling when you put it down on top of your amp or the stage floor – so simple, yet so effective. The V7’s spring steel mesh grille is dent-proof and corrosion-free for perfect reliability.

  • V7-MG-Image-Map-aspect-ratio-545-390

    SWITCHABLE INTERNAL WINDSCREEN

    Efficiently reduces unwanted wind noise and plosive pops….and just in case you don’t like our stylish “sE Red” color, we’ve included a spare black windscreen in the box for you.

  • “We took a listen, did a comparison, and that was an awesome thing. It rejected better and it sounded more like Justin’s voice when we handed it over to him."

    — Andy Meyer, FOH Engineer (Justin Timberlake, Madonna, Guns N’ Roses, Rage Against The Machine) - sE Artist
  • "The mic just makes our jobs a lot easier - in front of PAs especially, because these days your artist is in front of the system quite a bit, and we just really love the capsule, it’s been great."

    — Andy Meyer, FOH Engineer (Justin Timberlake, Madonna, Guns N’ Roses, Rage Against The Machine) - sE Artist

    — Luis “Lou” Rodriguez, Monitor Engineer (Big Sean)
  • "Hand-down best wireless vocal sound we’ve ever had. The even sound across the frequency range has made it my go-to capsule on the Axient system." — Alexander Archer, VEVO DSCVR - sE Artist

    — Alexander Archer, VEVO DSCVR - sE Artist
  • "They gives a sound comparable to a studio recording made with an LDC but with all the convenience of a wireless handheld…”

    — Alexander Archer, VEVO DSCVR - sE Artist
  • “The V7 MC1 capsule is an unbeatable value. During rehearsals with Dream Theater, we had four different capsules to test drive with singer, James Labrie. The decision was easy and unanimous as to which capsule sounded best, so we went ahead and bought four V7's that day."

    — James 'Jimmy T' Meslin, Monitor Engineer (Dream Theater)
  • "The tone of the capsule feels extremely natural, giving you loads of body and clarity before reaching for an EQ."

    — Jamie Skey, FOH Engineer (Mabel)

    — Jamie Skey, FOH Engineer (Mabel)
  • “The first time I heard my own voice through the V7, it was like someone had lifted a blanket off of my mic."

    — Russell Dickerson, Singer

Q&A

What are the differences between your microphones’ polar patterns? How do I choose the most suitable type of polar pattern for my recording environment?

There are no real “right” or “wrong” answers to this question, as different patterns will just provide different types of sounds, and whatever best suits your particular song is usually the right answer! With that said:

  • Cardioid – Generally best for recording vocals or other single sources, when you don’t want to hear much of the room sound around the source.
  • Omni – This is good when you want a less focused, more “roomy” sound. Think distant drum mics in a great-sounding room.
  • Figure-8 – Since this pattern lets the mic “hear” on both sides – front and back – and reject the sounds on either side, it’s handy if you want to record two sources at once from a point in between them, without hearing what’s off to the sides.
  • Hypercardioid / Supercardioid – More directional than Cardioid, this is good for spot mics, when you want the sound to be very focused.
How should I store my microphone?

We generally recommend keeping your microphone in its case or original packaging when it is not in use for more than a few hours. If your studio is very clean and safe, it could be OK to leave out on its mic stand when not in use, but if a mic is out of its case, it could potentially be exposed to dust, smoke, moisture, or humidity – which can damage the sensitive parts of the mic – so we recommend avoiding those things at all cost.

How do I clean the microphone from spillage and dirt?

If your microphone has come in contact with dirt or another removable substance, we recommend cleaning it with a very soft, slightly damp cotton cloth. Do not open the microphone up to clean the inside, and make sure you NEVER touch the capsule itself. Cleaning a capsule should only be done by highly trained professionals in a “clean room” environment. If you suspect your capsule needs to be cleaned, please contact [email protected] so we can recommend an authorized local technician.

My guitar amplifier / drum / horn is VERY loud, and I am concerned about the risk of damage due to loud noise.

For the most part, sE mics can tolerate extremely high SPLs (typically over 135dB) and will be fine in front of even the loudest sources – yes, even our ribbon mics. If in doubt, you can check the specifications on the individual product page.
