SE Electronics V Beat Drum Microphone


Compact, flexible, and minimalist design

The V BEAT utilizes an extremely low-profile mechanical design, with the XLR connector and stand mount integrated in parallel on the underside of the flexible swivel mount. This minimizes the V BEAT’s footprint, removes any cables from line-of-sight, and negates the need for any right-angle adapters or special cables. It also means there’s no danger of cables interfering with the drummer’s performance, as they are kept out of the way of cymbals and drum sticks alike.

The heart of the V BEAT: the DMC7 X capsule

The custom DMC7 X capsule offers the same technologies and features as its sibling within the acclaimed V7, including the innovative, specialized aluminum voice coil. While the V7 is optimized for vocals, the capsule in the V BEAT has been custom-tuned for instrumental use. With aluminum being a much lighter material than the industry standard (copper), it delivers an open and transient-rich sound, with deep and clear lows for stellar performance.

The midrange is also extremely balanced, supporting the natural resonances of percussive instruments. The excellent off-axis rejection of this sophisticated capsule also helps isolate your drums from other sound sources on the stage - efficiently reducing stage bleed and spill from other drums, cymbals and more.

The supercardioid pattern also allows you to easily tailor the bottom-end by adjusting the proximity effect – i.e. distance to the drum head. Proven Neodymium magnets, tight production tolerances and high workmanship ensure excellent sensitivity, high-end sound quality and superb consistency.

Unique, patented integrated capsule suspension

The V BEAT’s advanced internal suspension system isolates the capsule from shocks, knocks and mechanical vibrations on stage, protecting the sound and the microphone in equal measure

All-metal housing & spring steel grille

The chassis of the the V BEAT is all metal, so no plastic here, designed from highly durable zinc alloy that is die-cast to withstand stage stresses and strains for many years, combined with a dent-proof and corrosion-free steel mesh grille and a tightening knob for swivel mounting means a solid hold no matter what position.

Internal windscreen

The included red internal windscreen efficiently reduces unwanted popping, plosives and wind noise however in case a more subtle look is what you are after they do include a black windscreen as well.

Gold-plated XLR connector

The V BEAT comes fitted with a gold-plated XLR terminal to ensure the very best sound quality for the life of the microphone.

Knurled nut for other mounting accessories

Other popular drum microphone mounting options like the LP Mic Claw contain a knurled nut to secure the microphone in position. Due to its small footprint, this nut may block the XLR connector so a specially designed one is included that will solve this issue for you.

Optional accessory: The V CLAMP

When the V CLAMP is used in conjunction with the V BEAT, the possibilities are opened up for more flexibility and enhances its compact footprint. The clamp adds a extra vertical axis of movement whilst keeping the V BEAT secure on your drum kit.
