The sE4400a is true 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 4400a is pure modern classic.

Much like a few particularly well-known classic European condensers, the 4400a 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 4400a. Now these classics are obtainable: hand-made brass capsules, robust metal build, 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.
