sE Electronics V-Beat & V-Clamp Dynamic Percussion Instrument Microphone Bundle
Designed for use with snare drums and toms, the sE Electronics V Beat is a dynamic, supercardioid microphone. It offers a low-profile design that attaches easily to the rim of drum heads. Not only does the mic provide a highly accurate, naturalistic audio capture—it also keeps cables out the drummer's line of sight and makes it easier for them to maneuver around the kit without fear of accidentally striking a mic head.
At the heart of the V Beat is its DMC7 X capsule, which utilizes an aluminum voice coil for a transient-rich sound and a bottom end extending low enough to record the fundamental frequencies of toms and snares. Its supercardioid pickup pattern ensures little bleed, helping you isolate the sound-source from other drums or cymbals. The capsule is suspended inside the mic to keep it decoupled from mechanical vibration, shocks, jolts, and other issues.
The mic's all-metal housing is rugged, making the mic suitable for live use on the road. A gold-plated XLR connector helps to provide a reliable signal connection. With a windscreen built into the mic, it's already internally protected against winds, plosives, and extraneous noise. A black windscreen and a knurled nut for third-party mounting kits are included.
sE Electronics V CLAMP Quick-Mounting Drum Mic Clamp
The sE Electronics V CLAMP is a mount designed to add more flexibility when mounting drum mics to drum heads, particularly those in the V BEAT series. The V CLAMP secures to the rim of a snare or tom drum by means of its elastic clip, while the cylindrical metal tube allows you to move attached V-Series microphones on a vertical plane. With the V CLAMP, you can position the mic further away from the drum if you want to get more air and bloom around the sound, or mic it in tight and close. At the bottom of the rod is a small hole, which you can use with a tie clip for cable organization.
