Introducing the sE Electronics sE4400a Factory-Matched Pair, a remarkable duo of large-diaphragm condenser microphones. Dressed in a sleek black, non-reflective rubberized finish, these microphones are designed to stay discreet even under the brightest spotlights. Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, the sE4400a offers an array of features including four selectable polar patterns, handcrafted brass capsules, and convenient onboard pad and filter settings. Accompanied by a versatile shockmount, this microphone set provides both sonic and physical flexibility, making it suitable for capturing a wide range of sound sources and microphone placements. To ensure its protection during storage and transportation, the sE4400a comes packaged in a sturdy hard shell flight case.
The sE4400a's vintage-style brass capsules are painstakingly handcrafted, yielding not only a warm and inviting tone but also offering the versatility of four polar patterns: cardioid, hypercardioid, figure-8, and omnidirectional. This versatility allows for precise front-focused pickup or a complete 360° sound capture, making it adaptable to any recording scenario. Additionally, the microphone features -10 dB and -20 dB pads that effectively handle high sound pressure levels, preventing distortion when recording loud instruments. The two low-cut filters, set at 60 Hz or 120 Hz, provide control over bass buildup and help counter the proximity effect. To power the sE4400a, it should be connected to a microphone preamp capable of supplying 48V phantom power, as it relies on solid-state circuitry and utilizes a balanced XLR output.
Vintage Versatility With its four polar patterns, vintage-style brass capsule, two low-cut filters, two pads, and versatile shockmount, the sE4400a embodies the spirit of classic microphones. Its exceptional sound quality makes it an ideal choice for capturing vocals, guitars, toms, overheads, classical pianos, strings, and various other sound sources.
Handcrafted Capsules Following the tradition of sE microphones, the sE4400a features hand-built and hand-tuned brass-ringed capsules, meticulously crafted by skilled technicians, ensuring the highest level of craftsmanship and musicality.
Custom Shockmount and Chassis Designed with a flat, round-edged chassis and a custom suspension mount, the sE4400a offers flexible microphone placement options. Whether centered within the shockmount, flat against a drum head or guitar cab, or angled outwards inside a kick drum, the microphone's slim profile of less than 3/4" ensures easy handling while maintaining durability for on-the-road use.
Non-Reflective Paint The microphone boasts a special non-reflective, black rubberized finish, making it an excellent choice for live stage performances, theater productions, TV shows, and broadcast applications where lighting considerations are crucial.
Equipped with -10 dB and -20 dB pad switches, the sE4400a provides extended dynamic range, catering to a wide range of recording applications and close-mic techniques, even in the presence of highly dynamic sound sources.
Selectable at 60 Hz or 120 Hz, the two low-cut filters help eliminate low-frequency rumble, footfall noise, and excessive bass buildup, ensuring clean and focused recordings, especially when capturing instruments in close proximity.
Featuring a balanced XLR 3-pin output, the sE4400a easily connects to audio interfaces, external mic preamps, or mixer channels, requiring 48V phantom power for operation.
When purchased as a pair, the capsules are meticulously factory-matched, guaranteeing perfect tolerance and delivering the best possible stereo image.
