sE Electronics VR1 Voodoo Passive Ribbon Microphone

Like the sE RNR1, the VR1 microphone captures detailed recordings with extended highs. It's not black magic -- it's sE Electronics' Voodoo ribbon technology.

The Voodoo ribbon microphones from sE mark a milestone era for ribbon mic technology. Until the Voodoo Series, the only ribbon mic in the world to perform across 20Hz-20kHz was sE's 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 Voodoo 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 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 Voodoo's ability to perform -- coupled with its unique look -- have already made it a secret weapon for thousands of players worldwide.
