The VR1, a passive ribbon to bring out the bite and edge from your guitar cabs with no muddy highs. The VR ribbon microphones from sE mark a new era for ribbon mic technology. Until the VR Series, the only ribbon mic in the world to perform across 20Hz-18kHz was our own 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 VR 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 our highly specialized technicians in sE's capsule room.
