New sE Electronics sE4400a Large-Diaphragm Multipattern Condenser Microphone (Factory-Matched Pair)

$999.00
SKU SEE-4400ASP

Presented in a non-reflective, black, rubberized finish to keep out the spotlight, the sE Electronics sE4400a Factory-Matched Pair is a pair of large-diaphragm condenser microphones boasting four selectable polar patterns, handcrafted brass capsules, and onboard pad and filter settings. Paired with a highly adaptable shockmount, the sE4400a offers the sonic and physical flexibility to handle all kinds of sound sources and mic positions. Plus, it comes with a mounting bar for precise stereo configurations and a hard shell flight case to keep the whole setup safe during storage and transport.

The sE4400a's handmade vintage-style capsules yield not only a warm tone, but also the versatility of four polar patterns—cardioid, hypercardioid, figure-8, and omnidirectional—to enable anything from front-focused pickup to 360° capture. The -10 and -20 dB pads are perfect for preventing distortion when miking excessively loud instruments, and the low-cut filters (60 or 120 Hz) let you keep bass buildup under control. Since the sE4400a utilizes solid-state circuitry and a balanced XLR output, it should be connected to a mic preamp that can supply 48V phantom power.

Vintage Versatility

With four polar patterns, a vintage-style brass capsule, two low-cut filters, two pads, and a highly adaptable shockmount, 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 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 shockmounts. The whole setup comes packaged inside a secure flight case.
