SE Electronics sE2200a II Multi-Pattern Studio Condenser Microphone delivers the latest incarnation of the superb sE2200 recording mic. SE Electronics sE2200a II can trace its heritage back to the year 2000, and with this latest update this classic condenser microphone now features multi-polar patterns. sE2200a MK2 updates SE2200a, which has been by far sE’s best-selling model over the past decade. SE2200a, which only features a cardioid polar pattern, is the UK’s best-selling studio condenser microphone and has won pretty much every major award around the world for performance to price point, including an unprecedented twice winner of the coveted Music Industry Association (MIA) award.
sE2200a II Multi-Pattern uses a hand-crafted, 1" gold sputtered diaphragm, based on the original sE 2200a capsule, but a 'back-to-back' version which allows for multiple polar patterns (Cardioid, Figure of 8, Omni). The multi-pattern sE2200a MKII has been designed in response to feedback from many current 2200a users who love recording with the mic and have asked for a multi-pattern version. SE Electronics sE2200a MK2 multi-pattern has also been given a face lift with sE's new custom black rubber paint finish, which is both stylish and practical, helping to damp chassis resonance which many competitor microphones suffer from.
