SE Electronics GM10 is a condenser recording microphone with a difference. SE Electronics GM10 is a microphone designed specifically for recording acoustic guitars. GM10 is a unique new addition to the SE range of microphones.
SE GM10 is designed to solve the age old problem associated with recording acoustic guitars. Wherein there is always a trade off between the need to stay still in front of the microphone to avoid changes in the sound of the instrument as it’s recorded, and the need for the performer to get an ‘emotional’ take. The two requirements generally don’t sit to well and often leads to recordings sounding too clinical and lacking the performance element that often makes a song.
The SE Electronics GM10 incorporates the world’s smallest gold sputtered mylar capsule at 17.1mm, along with a proprietary shock mount assembly built into the capsule head. A universal clamping system enables the user to fix the mic in place (on any flat backed acoustic guitar) so the condenser capsule is perfectly placed to record take after take from exactly the same position.
The clamping mechanism and shock mount on the SE GM10 ensures that there is zero mechanical noise transferred through the guitar body. This allows the player to capture a perfect recording every time, while still being able to move around freely, which encourages the performer to give their best on a take.
The SE GM10 guitar mic really does transform recorded performances of acoustic guitar, and the way you work in the studio.
