The sE4400 is vintage versatility at its finest.
Four polar patterns, a vintage-style brass capsule, two bass cuts and two pads, and the most adaptable shockmount around – the 4400 is pure modern classic.
Much like a few particularly well-known classic European condensers, the 4400 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.
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, without the shortcomings of vintage mics.
TUNED & SONICALLY MATCHED IN-HOUSE
Each sE4400 Matched-Pair is rigorously tested, tuned in-house and sonically matched to ensure a virtually identical frequency response for balanced, consistent sound. Complete with a metal mic case, stereo bar, two shock-mounts and two sE4400 microphones.
CUSTOM SHOCKMOUNT + CHASSIS
The flat, round-edged chassis design and custom suspension mount allow the mic to be centered within the shock, used flat against a drum head or guitar cab, among many other use cases, and provides exceptional protection from low-end rumble and footfall noise.
The mic has a unique, black, non-reflective, non-marking, rubberised finish which is ideal for live stage, theatre, TV and broadcast applications which require lighting.
