The SE Electronics X1 A is high quality condenser microphone intended for a wide range of studio applications, from vocals to drums to acoustic instruments and beyond. Thanks to its custom design and carefully-selected capsule, it delivers pristine sound quality and an even, well-balanced frequency response.

The electronics and the switchable attenuation pad ensure a high dynamic range, with high sound pressure level (SPL) handling capability and extremely low-noise components. The switchable low cut filter eliminates rumble or footfall noise, and can also compensate for an excess of bass frequencies caused by the proximity effect. This enables the X1 A to close-mic many instruments including electric guitar speaker cabinets, brass instruments and drums.

Reliable operation even in demanding on-stage applications in difficult environments is ensured by the roadworthy all-metal design, robust construction, and high quality manufacturing standards.

SE Electronics X1 A Includes:

  • X1 A microphone
  • Swivel mic clip
  • Mic stand thread adapter

SE Electronics X1 A Features:

  • All-metal housing and premium finish
    Unlike the cheaply constructed bodies of some other"entry-level" microphones, the X1 A's all-metal chassis provides efficientrejection of any electrical interference and noise - and the high-qualityfinish ensures a great look for years to come.
  • Integrated windscreen
    Eliminates the need for an external pop filter, andprovides an extra layer of safety and security for the all-important capsule.
  • Completely new acoustic design
    The X1 A's new condenser capsule design is a work of art,delivering stellar sonic performance on any source with incredible speed,accuracy, and well-balanced frequency response. The electronics have alsoundergone a complete overhaul, and exhibit better specifications and sound -on and off the test bench - than any other microphone in its class.
  • Attenuation and low cut switches
    The -20 dB pad switch on the left provides extendeddynamic range, enabling a wide range of applications and close-mic techniquesfor even the loudest instruments...think super-heavy electric guitars,fortissimo brass instruments, and heavy-footed kick drums. The 100 Hz low-cutswitch helps eliminate low-frequency rumble or footfall noise, and compensatesfor excessive bass with close-mic techniques (proximity effect).
