Chinese-made quality. Electrostatic power supply 48 volts therefore indispensable.
A very economical alternative for the homestudistes AKG C451, Neumann KM84 to, Shure SM81.
With three interchangeable capsules, it meets almost all applications taken from his studio with still a marked predilection for over-head, hi-hat, percussion hight, acoustic guitar, string ensemble, piano, marimba, etc. .. . In fact all that have made the reputation of the two aforementioned ancestor.
I use them for a little over a year (if resources permit acquiring two for stereo jacks).
The characteristic I like most except neutrality and smoothness of the sound is certainly plenty of accessories included in the price (200 to 250 € each to your relationship) or three interchangeable capsules (omni, cardio and hipercardio), a suspension and a small aluminum case for transportation and no chip at all.
Having practiced the AKG 451, Neumann KM84 on the Shure SM81 I think you will not be disappointed by this model.
The value for money of this SE2a I think is currently no competition.
I would definitely do it again this election, but in 20 or 30 years in which state and which side?
One can ask the same question for ourselves.
