OUR PART # SE-GM10
The sE Electronics GM10 guitar mic was designed to solve an age old problem in micing acoustic guitars for studio recordings. There is always a trade off when recording, between the need to stay still in front of the mic to avoid changes in the sound of the instrument as it's recorded, and the need for the performer to get an 'emotional' take. The two requirements don't sit well together and this often leads to recorded takes sounding too clinical… too 'perfect' and lacking the performance element that often makes a song.
The GM10 incorporates the world's smallest gold sputtered mylar capsule at 17.1mm, along with a proprietary shock mount assembly built into the capsule head. A universal clamping system enables the user to fix the mic in place (on any flat backed acoustic guitar) so the condenser capsule is perfectly placed to record take after take from exactly the same position.
The clamping mechanism and shock mount ensure that there is zero mechanical noise transferred through the guitar body. This allows the user to capture a perfect recording every time, while still being able to move around freely, which encourages the performer to give their best on a take. The GM10 really does transform recorded performances of acoustic guitar, and the way you work in the studio.
