At a Glance
With the same hand-built brass capsule as the original, the Mark II version of this modern classic adds a multi-pattern version, a clever quick-release shockmount with integrated pop filter, and rubberized black paint to dampen any chassis resonances.
At the heart of the 2200a II is the hand-built, hand-tuned brass capsule that put sE on the map as a serious microphone manufacturer. With a gold-sputtered center-terminated diaphragm (two of these back-to-back on the multi-pattern version), the 2200a II’s capsule is built in the same style as the vintage European capsules that have been used and loved for many decades. If all you need is a cardioid polar pattern – most vocals will only require this – the 2200a II is a great choice
