From Our Research Team:
A Mic You'll Love to Sing Into!A tube mic - but even better! sE Electronics puts its own spin on the classic tube mic with the Gemini II. We've all heard tube mics on some of the most famous vocal recordings of all time, but you've never heard a tube mic like this. The Gemini II puts a cool spin on the traditional tube mic, using both a 12AX7 at the input stage and a 12AU7 at the output stage. Two tubes, huh? You might think this would put too much tubiness in play, but in actuality it gives you the body and warmth of a tube mic coupled with the top-end response of the "best of the best" solid state condensers. How could you go wrong? Many things promise to give you the best of both worlds, and few really do. The Gemini II delivers, and how! Give your mic locker a kick in the pants with the Gemini II. You won't be sorry!

Poor Man's M 149
by Scott W from NYA few friends and I did a shootout between the Gemini II, a M 149 Tube and a TLM 103. First off, the M 149 was hands down the best. However the Gemini II sounded unbelievably similar. We were all floo... read more [+]red by how this beastly microphone seemed to transcend the price barrier and provide AMAZING results for the money. The Gemini was a little more heavy in the low end, the M 149 was a little clearer all around. However at a little over 3K less than the 149, this mic sits so incredibly close to the sound quality of the M 149 you won't be dissatisfied. After not mentioning the TLM 103 (which I love as well) I still feel I don't need to mention it. If you want a mic that gives you smooth vocals, warm acoustic guitars and just leaves you satisfied from the moment you turn up the gain on this beast, look no further. Pair this with the SE Reflexion Filter for great results! close [-]
