Introduced back in 2008, the SE4400a is still a huge hit today with sound engineers around the world. The concept was to produce a microphone that sounded great yet felt vintage and familiar to the user. The overall build and finish of this microphone really reflects this. Hand crafted microphones are usually unheard of at this price point, let alone sound this this stunning. A pair of sE4400a condensers are always factory matched for perfect tolerance and exceptional stereo imaging.
Matched pair of SE4400a condenser microphones including stereo bar and flight case.
Much like a few particular well-known classic European condensers, the 4400a is a true all-rounder. You can put it up on just about anything and it'll sound great. Unfortunately for many studio owners, those "classic condensers" are often not what they used to be. Capsule designs change over time, capacitors dry out, metal switches are replaced with plastic buttons and LEDs, and the mics that were once so versatile are now mere shadows of their former selves.
As with all sE mics, the 4400a's back-to-back brass-ringed capsules are hand-built and hand-tuned by our skilled technicians, just like any fine musical instrument. The flat, round-edged chassis design and custom suspension mount allow the mic to be centered within the shock, flipped around and used flat against a drum head or guitar cab, or angled outwards and pushed through inside of a kick drum. And at less than 3/4" thick, it fits neatly in the palm of your hand, but is built to take a beating on the road.
