The sE2200a II Cardioid or as it is noted on the microphone itself sE2200a II C replaces the best-selling and multi-award winnning sE2200a large diaphragm condenser mic from sE Electronics.

The sE2200a II Cardioid is the single pattern version of the sE2200a II Multi-Pattern Mic. The sE2200a II C features the same custom, hand-crafted 1" gold-sputtered diaphragm as the first generation sE2200a. The sE2200a II Cardioid features a low cut bass filter, 10dB pad and comes complete (for a limited period) with a new universal, black shockmount.

Many recording engineers have said that they prefer the black, rubberised texture of th new mics so the sE2200a MK2 has been given a face lift with sE's custom black rubber paint finish, which is both stylish and practical, helping to damp chassis resonance which many competitor microphones suffer from.

The sE 2200a II C is the latest in sE Electronics’ lineage of sE2200 condenser mics dating back to the year 2000 (sE2200 > sE2200a > sE2200a II). It is highly unusual for a microphone series at this price point to be used in so many professional studios, and at such a high level... that's because, like all SE Electronics mics, the sE2200a and now the sE2200a II Cardioid, have been built to the standards you'd expect from the top 'boutique brands' like Neumann, but cost only the same as the mass-automated produced microphones from other well-known brands.

Whether you need the flexibilty of a sE2200a II Multi Pattern or the sE2200a II Cardioid, you won't regret purchasing the UK's best selling condenser mic for the last 10 years.

Comments about SE Electronics sE2200a II Cardioid Condenser Microphone:

I bought this based on hearing it on a vocal track from a friend of mine who used it on his recordings. This mic sounds absolutely fantastic! It's very smooth, and sounds amazing on vocals specifically. I have also used this on acoustic guitar and saxophones, and I really liked it on both of those as well. The build quality on this mic is VERY high...really beefy, and the shock mount is first class as well. Over-all, I am very happy with the purchase. I am trying to think of anything negative to say about it, but I can't really think of anything...I did try using it on the outside of a kick drum, and it didn't particularly work well for that.
