The sE Electronics Voodoo VR1 Passive Ribbon Microphone combines the smooth warmth of ribbon mics with the extended range and recording versatility of a condenser. With the ability to capture audio beautifully across a frequency range from 20Hz to 18kHz, and a boastful ability to handle up to 135dB sound pressure level, the VR1 is fantastic for recording an array of high energy sound sources including overdriven guitar speaker cabinets, as well as acoustic instruments. The Voodoo VR1 streamlines the recording process so that you can get on with what you do best - making music!
Hand tensioned ribbon
Each microphone is meticulously prepared by engineers in sE Electronics capsule room. The extremely thin ribbon - only 2 microns thick - is hand-tensioned to get the optimal balance and reaction to air pressure. The ribbon is then sealed in the incredibly robust case to ensure maximum lifespan - something that sE Electronics have gained a highly respected reputation for.
Powerful passive design
The Voodoo VR1 incorporates passive circuitry that incorporates a clever mechanical diffusor method in the capsule design - which was created by Siwei Zou, sE Electronics' CEO who is a classical musician who knows a thing or two about what a well-recorded instrument should sound like. The passive circuitry has very low self-noise, so you can rest assured that the fidelity of the sound source is upheld exquisitely without adding noise to the signal. There is no need for additional transformers or phantom power, all you need to do is mic up your sound source and you’re good to go.
Versatility as standard
As previously stated, versatility is a commanding feature of the VR1. You need not break the bank to capture a wide range of instruments: violin or voice, trumpet or tenor, piano or parlor guitar, etc. The VR1 will rapidly become the “go to” mic in your studio, and the stress-free approach to making music allows your creativity to flourish.
The sE Electronics Voodoo VR1 passive ribbon microphone is supplied with a shock mount to further reduce outside vibration and interference. To complete the package, a microphone clip and protective bag are supplied within a protective box so that you can keep your VR1 in pristine condition for many years to come.
