There's nothing quite like the sound of a tube condenser microphone, especially on such exposed and natural sound sources as vocals and acoustic guitars. There's also nothing quite like the handcrafted construction you get with sE Electronics microphones at a price that won't break your budget. With more and more recording aficionados wanting valve microphones in their studios, we welcome the sE X1 T to our biggest-selling X1 series.

The sE X1 T includes the same handcrafted, gold-sputtered capsule as the original X1, with high-quality analogue tube circuitry and a specially-selected valve to add rich, valve warmth to the already impressive sound of the sE X1, with attention particularly paid to accentuating the harmonics in your recordings.

Ideal for vocals and spoken word, acoustic stringed instruments, pianos and percussion, the X1 T is perfect for those looking for a microphone that will give a subtle lift to the low-mid frequencies and add tube sparkle to the high end. The mic has a cardioid polar pattern, and features a low cut switch and a -10dB pad.

The sE X1 T comes with a custom power supply, seven-pin PSU cable and a mic clip.

Magazine Reviews
Sound on Sound, Spetember 2014 "Though costing maybe twice what you might pay for the solid-state X1, the X1T is a true valve mic with a true valve character, yet still with a project-studio price tag." http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/sep14/articles/se-x1t.htm Music Radar, July 2014 "Adding valve circuitry to the X1 offers a slightly different but pleasant tonal perspective." http://www.musicradar.com/reviews/tech/se-electronics-x1t-603558 Music Tech, October 2014 "The X1 D does actually make for a very high-quality vocal mic, with all of our vocalisations captured in terrific detail.This wouldn’t be our first choice for all rap vocalists, but for faster styles where every articulation has to be captured in incredible detail it would certainly make our shortlist." http://www.musictech.net/2014/10/se-electronics-x1-t-and-x1-d-reviews/
