The sE Electronics sE X1R ribbon microphone is the new high performance passive ribbon from sE Electronics. The sE X1R is suited for a variety of recording applications including guitar cabs, overhead drums, brass, woodwind, strings, commercial broadcast and voice-over.
The state-of-the-art ribbon element is enclosed by top grade Neodymium magnets, boasting some of the latest ribbon microphone technologies from sE Electronics. They have combined their traditional ribbon technology with some of the mechanical elements of their patented Voodoo microphone HF (High Frequency) extension technology to bring a classic sounding ribbon mic with a gentle HF lift.
The sE X1R does not offer the full frequency response performance of the Voodoo VR1 / VR2 and the widely acclaimed sE Rupert Neve RNR1. Instead, it's a hybrid of old and new ribbon technology, offering all the natural beauty of the ribbon sound with more versatility and ease of use than the majority of ribbons on today's market.
The sE X1R also draws on the chassis and design elements of the hugely successful sE X1 cardioid condenser microphone to bring exceptional performance and the hand-crafted capsule quality you expect from all sE mics.
The sE X1R is the perfect ribbon mic for the first time project studio buyer, or can be a great addition of new character to your microphone collection.
