As a snare drum mic
Alex Krvs 04.03.2021
I really couldn't find any reviews regarding this microphone used as a snare drum mic so at first I was pretty hesitant but then when I bought it and made my first recording I was really happy.
Since it's been just 2 days that I'm using this I will update my review later.
So I could really hear a lot of snare detail, attack and air. The sound of my snare was exactly as I hear it while playing it. I never muffle my snare drum and classic dynamic snare drum mics almost always muffle it. With this one my snare drum had its character recorded instead of the mics character, but this is also due to its small diaphragm since small diaphragm condenser microphones tend to be more realistic sounding.
The most amazing thing for me was the sound of my brushes.. I could listen to every little detail. Probably a big diaphragm condenser microphone might be more "brush" appropriate, but this is a really great upgrade from the classic dynamic microphones.
Now my snare was picked up without making this mic peak, but that was with a -20db pad setting.
This microphone also comes with a mic holder, but I am using the t.bone SSM 4 shock mount and apart that it holds the microphone really securely it also looks awesome.

Sehr ordentliches Instrument-Mikro

Nutze das SE8 hauptsächlich für Westerngitarre und Banjo und stelle fest, dass es dafür perfekt ist. Das Klangbild ist schön ausgewogen, wobei die Mitten besonders gut zur Geltung kommen. Für den Preis ist das wirklich ordentlich.

Este micro lo he comprado con los KM184. Tengo que reconocer que me han sormprendido y para algunos casos mejores que los neumann.
Para HH suenan muy dulces.

Hohe Qualität

Das SE 8 ist ein hervorragendes Mikrofon. Vor Allem die Mitten sind gegenüber das Vorläufer Model SE 1a stark verbessert. An einem KM 184 reicht es noch nicht heran, aber für dieses Geld ist es hervorragend.
