sE Electronics Voodoo VR1 Ribbon Microphone

Ribbon microphone
MFR# VR1-U

Product Description

The sE Electronics Voodoo VR-1 and VR-2 ribbon mics mark a new era for ribbon mic technology – until now the only ribbon mic in the world to perform across 20Hz-20KHz was the sE/Rupert Neve collaboration, the RNR1, critically 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, are sure to make the VR1 and VR2 classics of their time.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
