sE Electronics 4400a Multipattern Condenser Microphone
The sE Electronics 4400a Multipattern Condenser Microphone consists of a vintage-style brass capsule, two bass cuts, two pads, and four polar patterns. Also included in the box is a fantastic shockmount that can adapt to any recording scenario. The 4400a is considered by some as a modern day AKG 414. Dark sounding, neutral, but with a slight lift in the highs. The 4400a was used to record the piano in Coldplay's latest album. The 4400a is also a great 'all-rounder' - it'll sound great on pretty much anything.
Given the practically cult status of these vintage mics, sE saw an opportunity, and from that arose the 4400a. Now these classics are obtainable - hand-made brass capsule, four-polar-pattern-versatility and all. And like the classics, the 4400a sounds great on everything. Vocals, guitars, toms, overheads, classical pianos, strings, you name it. Its tonal versatility is practically unmatched.
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.
CUSTOM SHOCKMOUNT + CHASSIS
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.
The mic has a unique, black, non-reflective, non-marking, rubberized finish which is ideal for live stage, theatre, TV and broadcast applications which require lighting.
