  • "The sE4400a is a carefully handmade large-diaphragm condenser mic based on modern technology with a touch of vintage. The design is very solid and the way it reacts to the sound of my acoustic instruments is amazing. The warmth, dynamics and the precision in capturing sound is overwhelming. Definitely a must in any recording situation. It enhances my playing and inspires my creativity."

    — El Amir (Composer, Producer, Guitarist, Hans Zimmer)
  • “Both mics the sE8 and the sE4400a are great mics for recording any type of acoustic instrument. A good option is to try and use them both next to each other and record two guitar signals at once. For this I would leave the sE8 more or less at the bottom of the sE4400a that way the sE8 captures more mid and high range and the sE4400a captures the rounder low end (and of course everything else too)."

    — El Amir (Composer, Producer, Guitarist, Hans Zimmer)
  • " So far I haven’t had the need to neither attenuate nor apply the pass filter options. Again, there are many many ways of setting mic positions depending on what sound and style you are looking for.”
