Ribbon microphones have been around since the early days of radio, and are often used for a thicker, more "vintage" sound. However, with thoroughly modern technologies and materials, sE has developed a range of mics that don't suffer from the lack of high-frequency detail plaguing most ribbons, so you can keep all the ribbon midrange magic without sacrificing your highs.

The VR1 is your new "secret weapon" ribbon

The VR1, a passive ribbon to bring out the bite and edge from your guitar cabs with no muddy highs.

The VR ribbon microphones from sE mark a new era for ribbon mic technology.

Until the VR Series, the only ribbon mic in the world to perform across 20Hz-20kHz was our own Rupert Neve collaboration, the RNR1. This was achieved using state-of-the-art custom transformers and a Rupert Neve-designed circuit to reveal HF usually absent.

With the VR mics, full frequency response is achieved using a clever mechanical device designed by Siwei Zou, the company CEO, and a hand-tensioned ribbon constructed by our highly specialized technicians in sE's capsule room.

The result is a superbly detailed, open and natural recording of acoustic instruments and guitar cabs. The VR1 & VR2's ability to perform - coupled with their unique look - have already made them a secret weapon for top musicians and engineers worldwide.
