Versatile Z-Series features extra large 1.07" gold-sputtered diaphragms, tube and solid-state circuitry, polar pattern control and -10db pad
SE Electronics, which introduced their popular SE-series at winter NAMM 2002, is launch the Z- and update SE-series condenser microphones. The attractively priced Z-series is designed to deliver versatility and detailed response for recording lead and backup vocals, acoustic instruments and amplifiers. Targeted for professional, project and home studio engineers and
everyday users, the lineup consists of the flagship Z5600, Z3300, Z2200 and Z1100.
The Z5600 is designed for vocals, solo and chorus, as well as instrument, acoustic and amplified. It is ideal for professional, project and home studio applications. It employs a replaceable vacuum tube that features a nine-point polar pattern selector switch on its custom power supply. It offers a super-large 1.07-inch 24K gold-sputtered diaphragm for a fatter bottom-end response and higher sensitivity. The extended frequency response is 20Hz to 20KHz. Self noise is low at 16dB A- weighted.
The Z3300 and Z2200 are targeted toward commercial and home studio engineers and are designed for vocals and a variety of amplified and acoustic instruments.
The Z3300 is a versatile project and home studio workhorse that features a large 1.07-inch twin diaphragm. The Z3300 offers an extended dynamic range and warm sound as well as a choice of three polar patterns. The microphone features a class A FET preamp for transparent, low noise performance. The frequency response is 20Hz to 20KHz and boasts an equivalent noise level of 18dB A-weighted.
The Z2200 is related to the Z3300, but instead of offering polar patterns, the Z2200 offers the convenience of a 100HZ bass roll-off switch and a -10dB pad.
The Z1100 also features a precision 1.07-inch gold-sputtered diaphragm. It offers a fixed cardioid polar pattern with a frequency response of 10Hz to 20KHz. It features class A FET electronics. The equivalent noise level is 18dV A-weighted.
All microphones include an external shock mount. Hard cases for secure transportation are optional.
"SE Electronics brings the power and quality of professional studio mics to the everyday recording artist and musician," said Belinda Lee at SE Electronics. "Capturing pure, high quality sound is the most critical step in the recording process. Our new Z-series lineup offers more detailed bottom-end response and higher sensitivity at price points that are affordable to a much wider audience of musicians, professionals, home studio users and even commercial and broadcast engineers."
