    Product Description

    sE Electronics VR1 Ribbon Mic 

    Ribbon mics will never be the same again! The sE Electronics VR1 Ribbon Mic boasts a revolutionary 20Hz-20kHz response with all the character and smoothness that these mic's are known for. Combine this with the fact that the VR1 is incredibly affordable and rugged, and you have a ribbon mic which challenges the limitations of ribbons and brings a new sound to the recording studio market.

    Here's What sE Electronics Say About the VR1 Ribbon Mic

    The Voodoo Ribbons from sE Electronics are new for 2010 and mark a new era for Ribbon mic technology - until now the only ribbon mic in the world to perform across 20Hz-20KHz was our own Rupert Neve collaboration, the RNR1, crtically acclaimed as the best ribbon mic in the world. This was achieved using state of the art transformers and a Rupert Neve designed circuit board to reveal HF usually absent. The Voodoo mics however, achieve full frequency response using a new mechanical device (patent pending), designed by Siwei Zou, the company CEO.

    This extraordinary technical achievement allows the traditional Ribbon capsule to develop and capture frequencies from 20Hz to 20KHz like no other ribbon on the planet. The sound is revolutionary; where the RNR1 is simply a stunning mic in its own class entirely, the Voodoo range brings traditional ribbon sound to the project and commercial studio, but extends it to perform as well as most condensers do. The result is superbly detailed and wonderfully open and natural sounding recordings of acoustic instruments and guitar cabs. The VR2 is an 'active' version of the VR1, which is the more traditional 'passive' Ribbon design. These mics' unique ability to perform, coupled with searingly good looks, is sure to make the VR1 and VR2 classics of their time.

    Love smooth sounding ribbon with an open top end. Great for combining with my SM57 on guitar amps, and even acoustic guitar.

    Great microphone to pickup my guitar cabinet. Nice combo with a SM57. Not a fan from the wooden box ; no room for the suspension...
