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.
