sE Electronics V Beat Drum Microphone


Here’s what sE Electronics say:

The most compact & flexible drum mic in its class. Superior isolation and effortless performance for snares & toms, all with minimal footprint and maximum flexibility.

The V BEAT is the most compact drum microphone in its class, 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 ultra-compact 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.
