The VR1, a passive ribbon to bring out the bite and edge from your guitar cabs with no muddy highs. The Voodoo ribbon microphones from sE mark a new era for ribbon mic technology.
Until the Voodoo Series, the only ribbon mic in the world to perform across 20Hz-20kHz 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 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 our 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.
