SE Electronics SE2200-U, Large Diaphragm Cardioid Condenser Mic with Shockmount & Filter
Vendor: SE Electronics
SE Electronics SE2200-U Large Diaphragm Cardioid Condenser Mic with Shockmount & Filter, Classic sound, by any standards.
The SE Electronics SE2200-U feature its latest version of the award-winning cardioid condenser microphone that put SE Electronics on the map many years ago with its smooth, polished sound for vocals, voiceovers and numerous instrumental applications. Because of the world-class vocal artists like Amy Winehouse the SE Electronics SE2200-U became famous and it revives the spirit of classic studio microphones and still remains a standard in mic lockers around the world.
Given the revered status of its predecessors, sE has remained true to the original capsule design, custom-built transformer and class-A circuit topologies, so it’s still the same condenser microphone loved by a whole generation of engineers.
TRADITIONAL CLASS-A ELECTRONIC DESIGN
The SE Electronics SE2200-U features a traditional class-A electronic design and its carefully selected with discrete components to ensure brilliant sound quality on any source. The SE Electronics SE2200-U is design still avoids using any ICs (integrated circuits) and is built to excel - not to a standard. Also, the SE Electronics SE2200-U is low noise, with consistent performance and high sensitivity which is provided by state-of-the-art surface-mounted electronic components with extremely tight tolerances.
TWO SWITCHABLE ATTENUATION LEVELS & LOW-CUT FILTERS
The -10 dB and -20 dB pad switches provide extended dynamic range, enabling a wide variety of applications and close-mic techniques for even the loudest instruments...think super-heavy electric guitars, fortissimo brass instruments, and heavy-footed kick drums.
Selectable at either 80Hz or 160Hz, the two low-cut filters help eliminate low-frequency rumble or footfall noise, as well as help compensate for excessive bass (proximity effect) with close-mic techniques.
CUSTOM-BUILT OUTPUT TRANSFORMER
Reviving the spirit of classic studio microphones, the sE2200’s custom transformer provides superb depth & weight to the overall sonic image, and the massively shielded metal housing ensures noise-free operation.
ALL-METAL HOUSING & PREMIUM FINISH
Unlike the cheaply constructed bodies of some other affordable microphones, the sE2200's all-metal chassis provides efficient rejection of any electrical interference and noise - and the high-quality finish ensures a great look for years to come.
GOLD-PLATED XLR CONNECTOR
Ensures loss-free, reliable signal connection for years and years and years and...
THE ISOLATION PACK
For situations where greater rumble control and ‘plosive protection is desired, this bundle also includes sE’s Isolation Pack. With the twist of a single knob, the mount attaches quickly and securely to the microphone, and is removable with the same simple motion. This allows the mic to be set up quickly and easily - no adjustments, no hassle.
The Isolation Pack also comes equipped with sE's curved metal pop filter, which efficiently slots in to the shockmount and is vertically adjustable for best performance.
