The sE Rupert Neve RN17 small diaphragm condenser mic was designed and built by sE Electronics and Mr. Rupert Neve himself.

sE Electronics and Rupert Neve Designs announced the first sE Rupert Neve microphone in 2008. In 2011, sE and Rupert Neve Designs announced their second collaboration, the sE Rupert Neve RN17. The sE RN17 is the world's first pencil microphone with a large scale, hand wound, ultra high performance transformer.

The definition and detail from the capsule is incredible, made more so by the headroom afforded by the Rupert Neve transformer. Combined with a newly developed 17mm capsule from sE, the world's smallest production gold sputtered Mylar capsule, the result is truly magnificent. The combined effect is one of exceptional clarity, with a wonderfully silky finish.

The sE RN17 ships with a cardioid capsule, in a beautiful wooden presentation case, and with 5 canisters to hold the cardioid capsule shipped with the mic, and further supercardioid, omni, hypercardioid and figure of 8 capsules which are available to purchase separately. The whole system is packaged in a signature series flight-case with a custom shock mount, and is also avalable as a stereo pair.
