The accompanying photo (from a Sound On Sound article from January 2012) shows the microphone that was used to record Ed Sheeran's guitars on his + album. The sE Electronics sE4400a Condenser Microphone was the mic of choice used to capture Sheeran's guitars by producer and co-writer Jake Gosling, at Gosling's [Sticky Studios](http://www.stickycompany.com/). In the article, Gosling says, "I did a lot of the guitars using a pair of SE 4400as. The main vocals pretty much were all done on the [SE Z3300a](http://equipboard.com/items/se-electronics-z3300a-multi-pattern-studio-condenser-microphone), but I've just got a new [Telefunken U47](http://equipboard.com/items/telefunken-u47-microphone), which is lovely."
