sE Electronics SE4400a Multi Pattern Large Diaphragm Vintage Microphone with Shockmount and Case, Factory Matched Pair: Four polar patterns, a vintage-style brass capsule, two bass cuts and two pads, and the most adaptable shockmount around...the sE4400a Stereo Pair is pure modern classic.

Much like a few particularly well-known classic European condensers, the sE4400a is a true all-rounder. You can put it up on just about anything and it'll sound great. Unfortunately for many studio owners and live sound engineers, those "classic condensers" are often not what they used to be. Capsule designs change over time, metal switches are replaced with plastic buttons and LEDs, and the mics that were once so smooth-sounding & versatile are now mere shadows of their former selves.

Much like a few particularly well-known classic European condensers, the sE4400a is a true all-rounder. You can put it up on just about anything and it'll sound great. Unfortunately for many studio owners and live sound engineers, those "classic condensers" are often not what they used to be. Capsule designs change over time, metal switches are replaced with plastic buttons and LEDs, and the mics that were once so smooth-sounding & versatile are now mere shadows of their former selves.

Given the practically cult status of these vintage mics, sE saw an opportunity, and from that arose the sE4400a. Now, these classics are obtainable: hand-made brass capsules, robust metal build, four-polar-pattern-versatility, and all. And like the classics, the sE4400a sounds great on everything. Vocals, guitars, toms, overheads, classical pianos, strings, you name it. Its tonal versatility is practically unmatched, without the shortcomings of vintage mics.

And when purchased as a pair, the capsules are factory-matched for perfect tolerance, providing the best possible stereo image. This configuration also includes a precision stereo mounting bar and two of the sE4400a's custom shock mounts. This whole setup comes packaged inside a secure flight case.

 

CUSTOM HAND-CRAFTED CAPSULE

As with all of sE's true condenser mics, the sE4400a'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.

 

 

CLASSIC SOUND

Just like the classics, the sE4400a Stereo Pair sounds great on everything. Vocals, guitars, toms, overheads, classical pianos, strings, you name it. Its tonal versatility is practically unmatched, without the shortcomings of vintage mics. 

SE ELECTRONICS SE4400A MULTI-PATTERN LARGE DIAPHRAGM VINTAGE MICROPHONE FEATURES

  • Vintage Versatility: With four polar patterns, a vintage-style brass capsule, two low-cut filters, two pads, and a highly adaptable shock mount, the sE4400a is destined to be a classic. Like the classics, the sE4400a is made to sound great on everything - vocals, guitars, toms, overheads, classical pianos, strings, you name it.

  • Handcrafted Capsules: As with all sE mics, the sE4400a's back-to-back brass-ringed capsules are hand-built and hand-tuned by skilled sE technicians, just like any fine musical instrument.

  • Custom Shockmount and 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 inside of a kick drum. 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.

  • Non-Reflective Paint: The mic has a special, black, non-reflective, non-marking, rubberized finish which is ideal for live stage, theatre, TV, and broadcast applications that require lighting.

  • Two Pads: The -10 and -20 dB pad switches provide an extended dynamic range, enabling a wide variety of applications and close-mic techniques for even the loudest instruments.

  • Two Low-Cut Filters: Selectable at either 60 or 120 Hz, the two low-cut filters help eliminate low-frequency rumble or footfall noise as well as help compensate for excessive bass (proximity effect) with close-mic techniques.

  • Connects to XLR Mic Inputs: The sE4400A is equipped with a balanced XLR 3-pin output for connection to audio interfaces, outboard mic preamps, or mixer channels. 48V phantom power is required.

  • Factory-Matched Pair: When purchased as a pair, the capsules are factory-matched for perfect tolerance, guaranteeing the best possible stereo image. This configuration also includes a precision stereo mounting bar and two of the sE4400a's custom shock mounts. The whole setup comes packaged inside a secure flight case.
