Improving upon the technology of the renowned T2 while cutting out unnecessary complications, the T1 Large-Diaphragm Condenser Microphone from sE Electronics is a quality studio condenser mic with a fixed cardioid pickup pattern and a 1" titanium capsule. 33% stiffer and more than 300% lighter than gold, the titanium-sputtered diaphragm offers a superior transient response, ideal for drums, cymbals, and bass recording applications.
The T1 features an impressive low noise and a whopping 157 dB max SPL with the attenuation pad engaged, allowing it be used on a very wide array of sources, from whisper quiet to extremely loud. With the 80 or 160 Hz low-cut filter, you can eliminate rumbling and footfall noise. Both the pad and high-pass filter utilize metal switches, rather than delicate plastic, and the whole enclosure is handmade at sE Electronics' factory, providing a dent-proof housing that will survive years of intensive use. This microphone includes a shockmount, a metal case, a thread adapter, and an sE Electronics logo sticker.

Little Brother of the Renowned T2

Drawing from the well-regarded design of the T2 multipattern condenser microphone, the T1 offers the same performance with a few improvements and a fixed cardioid pattern.
  • Titanium-sputtered 1" mylar diaphragm offers superior transient response over gold-sputtered capsules
  • True condenser technology with high-precision parts for excellent sound quality
  • Improved self noise, from 13 dBA on the T2 to only 9 dBA on the T1
  • Enhanced dynamic range over the T2 (128 instead of 124 dB)
  • Each capsule is handcrafted and individually tuned in sE Electronics' own factory

Precise Cardioid Pattern

Swapping out the multipattern design of the T2 for the cardioid capture of the T1 offers improved off-axis rejection and a more affordable mic without sacrificing sound quality.
  • Minimizes signal bleed from unwanted sources, especially helpful in untreated spaces
  • Ensures high gain before feedback across the whole frequency range
  • Enhances directivity from the source by preventing coloration from indirect reflections and reverb

Switchable Attenuation Pad

The T1 sports the same pad with metal switches found on the T2, providing:
  • An extended dynamic range, up to 148 dB
  • Greater range of applications due to wider SPL resistance
  • Support for close miking of loud sources such as electric guitars, brass instruments, and kick drums

Switchable Low-Cut Filter

The improved high-pass filter on the T1 changes values to 80 and 160 Hz for improved versatility. With the high-pass filter, you can eliminate low-frequency rumble or footfall noise. It also helps compensate for excessive bass when using close-miking techniques.
