sE Electronics sE V Kick
The V KICK: Unbeatable punch & impact, with four custom voicings to cover any sonic need.
From big band to metalcore, the V KICK has got you covered.
The V KICK is the most compact and versatile drum microphone in its class, intended for use with kick (bass) drums and other sources such as miking bass guitar speaker cabinets, floor toms or other large drums where low-frequency energy is of the utmost importance. Its integrated swivel joint allows for any required mic placement, and its specialized capsule provides a sound character tailored specifically for kick drums, which can be further shaped with the use of two switches on the rear side of the microphone. From warm and classic to modern and aggressive, the V KICK gives you any kick drum sound you need.
From classic to modern: Four switchable sonic voicings.
Two switches on the rear side of the V KICK allow you four different sound settings, great for tailoring the sound for your specific project – and ideal for live shows with multiple bands and short changeovers. And since they’re on the back of the mic, these switches are still accessible even if the V KICK is placed inside a kick drum.
The left-hand switch shapes the microphone’s overall voicing.
“Classic” provides a more traditional kick drum sound with a familiar low frequency punch and a warmer, more rounded sound. If a more contemporary, aggressive sound is desired, the “Modern” setting emphasizes the low end and high end (a “scooped” sound).
The right-hand switch specifically tailors the high-frequency character.
“Classic” provides a typical bite in the upper midrange (presence boost) and a more rounded and familiar sound, while “Modern” provides an open, clear and transient-rich top end for a more contemporary, aggressive drum sound - ideal for metal and hard rock.
The most compact kick drum mic on the market.
The V KICK’s extremely low profile allows for effortless placement outside or inside a kick drum, and its integrated swivel joint allows for easy positioning inside (through the drum head port) or outside the kick drum.
With the V KICK, you can always make the right choice with just a single microphone.
And with the stand mount and the XLR connector mounted side-by-side in parallel on the underside of the mic, your mic cables stay flush with the mic stand – no cable clutter, completely minimal footprint, and easy to place anywhere.
