sE Electronics Gemini II Reviews4.8/5.0 based on 4 customer reviews
The sE Electronics Gemini II is a serious mic for the modern recording engineer! Get the massive warmth you want from vintage and the clarity of modern mics all in one package. Two tubes in one mic, oh my!

Poor Man's M 149A 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 floored 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!

IndulgeUsed this at SAE, the school i graduated from, to record vocals on a project of mine through and SSL J9000. It pics out nuances that you wouldn't expect from a tube. Adds a bit of tone, but is extremely clear. We did a song for and Indie Rock/ Blues band. It was amazing. Tried it as a KICK OUT mic and see what you get. Ready to see what else it can take care of.
