sE Electronics X1R Ribbon Microphone

Add a ribbon to your mic collection for an affordable price! The sE Electronics X1R delivers classic ribbon character with a gentle high-frequency lift.

The sE Electronics X1R ribbon microphone is a high performance passive ribbon from sE. The X1R is suited to a variety of recording applications including guitar cabs, overhead drums, brass, woodwind, strings, commercial broadcast and voice-over.

This state-of-the-art ribbon element enclosed by top-grade Neodymium magnets boasts ribbon microphone technologies from sE Electronics. sE has combined their traditional ribbon technology with some of the mechanical elements of their patented Voodoo microphone HF (High Frequency) extension technology to bring you 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, but a hybrid of old and ribbon technology which gives you all the natural beauty of the ribbon sound, but 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 you exceptional performance, and the hand-crafted capsule quality you expect from all sE mics, but at a fraction of the cost of other boutique brands.

The sE X1R really is the perfect ribbon mic for the first time project studio buyer, or a great addition of character to your microphone collection.
