sE Electronics sE2200 Large-Diaphragm Condenser Microphone, with Pop Filter and Shockmount

Get sE Electronics quality in an awesomely affordable package with the sE2200 fixed-cardioid condenser mic, with metal pop filter and shock mount included.
The sE Electronics sE2200 is the 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.

Made famous through use with world-class vocal artists like Amy Winehouse, 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.

Handcrafted 1" True Condenser Capsule

Although the sE2200 is a cardioid-only microphone, two (instead of one) gold-sputtered diaphragms are used to ensure best possible acoustic performance.

Built like the world's finest musical instruments, every capsule is hand-crafted and individually tuned in sE Electronics' very own factory in Shanghai - and unlike other microphones with backplate or electret designs, the sE2200 features a true externally polarized condenser capsule, and therefore delivers the best possible performance in every aspect.

Traditional Class-A Electronic Design

Its carefully selected, discrete components ensure brilliant sound quality on any source. The sE2200's design still avoids using any ICs (integrated circuits) and is built to excel - not to a standard. Low noise, read more consistent performance and high sensitivity 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.

"Wow!!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This is a beautifully balanced mic for the money. It's super clear and very quiet. Not much EQing needed on my wifes vocals. I haven't had the chance yet to try it on my acoustic guitar but I'm pretty sure it would be great for that as well.
Musical Background:
I've been playing guitar and writting music for 40 years, and landed my first recording deal in 2019
