    Has anyone ever used the se electronics se-1 for overheads?

    se-1

    Whats your impression? they are a very cheap price, and the specs look good.

    do you reckon theyd be a good starting point? (my budget is UP TO $500 (max) for a pair of drum OH mics.

    That looks exactly the same as the T.Bone mic i recently got. I'm not happy with it at all. The sound it records isn't really good (at least the T.Bone isn't). The high frequency's sound very flattened and plastic like. Also when close micking my hihat i get a lot of low frequency's. Could this be the mic or are there other things i need to take into account when micking a hihat?

    I wouldn't recommend the SE-1 for overheads ... way too dark sounding.

    I bought them specifically for that reason and hated them. I ended up keeping them though, as they made great room mics, an application for which I prefer a darker tone.

    A pair of Oktava MC012's do nice as drum overheads and are cheap as well!
