Here's What sE Electronics Say About the sE4400a Matched Stereo Pair
The 4400a is the latest in a lineage of mics which was started 6 years ago with our sE2200a. Based on the same capsule tuning, but with a dual capsule to give multi polar pattern function, this mic is a real rarity.
It has 4 polar patterns, Cardioid, Hypercardioid, Figure of 8 and Omni. 2 bass cuts at 60Hz and 120Hz; 2 pads at 10 and 20dB. The chassis is very small, but still manages to house a twin diaphragm 1" capsule and all the top grade electronics and switches. This flat, round edged chassis design allows the mic to be placed flat onto a drumhead or guitar cab, or pushed through into the skin of a kick drum. It is also perfect for vocals and voice over work - because although it's the smallest mic of it's type, it still ‘looks' big when used face on. It is extremely thin at less than 3/4" and fits neatly in the palm of your hand. The sE4400a has a unique, black, non-reflective, non-marking, rubberised finish which is ideal for live stage, theatre, TV and broadcast applications which require lighting.
Finally, the capsule has been specially tuned (after almost 2 years of pre-market tests with professional studios and broadcasters), to really be something that very few mics can be; the true all-rounder. Vital in professional studio or broadcast applications (where an engineer needs a reliable, versatile mic), it is equally suited to the home studio user on a budget. The mic is multi-functional, yet uncluttered. The sound is smooth and flattering and yet, because the capsules are hand made (like all sE mics) and then individually tuned, it benefits from lacking the usual hyped, top end found in most modern mass produced mics.
It comes with a unique shock mount. This allows you to fit the mounted mic into tiny spaces. You can also invert the shock clamp to extend the mic fully outside of its boundaries for close miking applications, or vocals. It also comes with a full, steel re-enforced, black aluminium, signature sE flight case. This stereo pair is hand-matched at the factory. This mic is set to be a classic!
