sE Electronics sE4400a Condenser Microphone
We will ship to you as soon as we receive stock
sE Electronic introduced the sE4400a back in 2008 and ever since it's release has been a huge hit with sound engineers around the world. The concept was to offer a microphone that not only sounded great but felt vintage and familiar to the user. The overall build quality and finish of the sE4400a condenser microphone really reflects this. Hand crafted mics are usually unheard of at this price point, let alone ones that sound this excellent.
The sE4400a hearkens back to hand crafted vintage studio mics offering 4 polar patterns and a solid brass design.
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.
