Toms require a mic that can deal with high SPLs at close range, but can capture all the fullness and warmth of a deep percussive hit plus the harmonics it generates.

Serious sound at an affordable price.

The X1 D

"The X1 D is now my go-to outside kick mic. It's lovely and I use it every session. Everyone I've loaned one to has bought one...the FET47 stays in the case now."

- F. Reid Shippen, GRAMMY®-winning mix engineer / producer (Ingrid Michelson, Kenny Chesney) - sE Artist

The next step up for clarity and performance.


"I couldn't find anything that it couldn't cope with, and its ease of positioning for a large‑diaphragm model was a big plus."

"If you need a large‑diaphragm, multi‑pattern capacitor mic that's almost as easy to position as a small‑diaphragm pencil mic, the SE4400A, with its elegant shockmount, is a very practical choice in the mid‑priced section of the microphone market."

The best sound that money can buy.


"The T2s sounded exactly like I hoped they would. Punch and beef on toms was the number one criteria, and they delivered. Just slight EQing in my API 560s and they were perfect."

- Chris Fogel, Scoring Engineer (The Wolf of Wall Street, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty) - sE Artist

Gemini II

"I used the thing on several orchestral elements at Sony scoring and it was outstanding on everything. It's the best tympani mic I've ever used, and I typically use well-maintained 47s or 49s. Really great."

- Chris Fogel, Scoring Engineer ('The Wolf of Wall Street', 'The Secret Life of Walter Mitty', 'Old School') - sE Artist
