  • Overview
  • Tech Specs

The sE Electronics sE2300 is a multi-pattern version of sE’s popular sE2200 studio condenser — and, thanks to its discrete Class A components, it sounds incredible. It delivers the same stunning, upfront sound and full feature set that made the original such a huge hit, but adds multiple polar patterns for even more versatility. Park it in front of a vocalist, place it over a drum kit, or plant it in front of a guitar cabinet — the sE2300 excels on just about any application you can think of. If you're looking for a value-packed workhorse, you can't go wrong with the sE2300.

THREE SELECTABLE POLAR PATTERNS
The 3-position Pattern Switch is located on the rear side of the microphone, and allows the sE2300’s polar pattern to be changed from omnidirectional to cardioid to figure-eight. This allows for great control over the balance between direct and ambient sound.

TRADITIONAL CLASS-A ELECTRONIC DESIGN
Its carefully selected, discrete components ensure brilliant sound quality on any source. The sE2300’s design still avoids using any ICs (integrated circuits) and is built to excel – not to a standard. Low noise, consistent performance and high sensitivity is provided by state-of-the-art surface-mounted electronic components with extremely tight tolerances.

TWO SWITCHABLE ATTENUATION LEVELS & LOW-CUT FILTERS
The -10 dB and -20 dB pad switches provide extended dynamic range, enabling a wide variety of applications and close-mic techniques for even the loudest instruments...think super-heavy electric guitars, fortissimo brass instruments, and heavy-footed kick drums.

Selectable at either 80Hz or 160Hz, the two low-cut filters help eliminate low-frequency rumble or footfall noise, as well as help compensate for excessive bass (proximity effect) with close-mic techniques.
