The Gemini II Dual Tube Microphone from sE Electronics is designed for crucial capturing of vocals and instruments in professional recording applications and features a unique dual tube design. The sE-Electronics twin triode valves feature a 12AX7 (ECC83) and 12AU7 (ECC82) tubes that provide pristine warmth and detail at the input and output stages of the microphone.The Gemini II maintains a low noise floor, minimizing the "room noise" associated with most tube microphones.

HANDCRAFTED CAPSULE & LARGER-THAN-LIFE SOUND

The Gemini II has a 1/4” capsule that is handcrafted and individually tuned in our very own factory.

Thanks to a larger-than-life capsule, true condenser technology and ultra-precision parts, the Gemini II delivers a massive sound right out of the box.

In addition, the Gemini II’s hand-made metal housing and gold-sputtered diaphragms, ensure maximum reliability in any and all sonic settings.

"The sE Gemini II is both the beauty and the beast. It demands attention, both visually in the studio, and aurally in the mix. With its clarity and detail, it's an easy go-to choice for vocals and much more."
