THE VR RIBBON MICROPHONES FROM SE MARK A NEW ERA FOR RIBBON MIC TECHNOLOGY
A passive ribbon to bring out the bite and edge from your guitar cabs with no muddy highs.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Superbly detailed, open and natural sound
  • A passive ribbon to bring out the bite and edge from your guitar cabs with no muddy highs
  • Hand-tensioned ribbon constructed by our highly specialised technicians in sE’s capsule room
  • Full frequency response using technology designed by Siwei Zou, sE’s CEO
  • All-metal housing and gold plated XLR connector
  • A secret weapon for top musicians and engineers worldwide

A NEW ERA FOR RIBBON MIC TECHNOLOGY
Until the VR 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.

A PASSIVE RIBBON WITH FULL FREQUENCY RESPONSE
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 specialised technicians in sE’s capsule room.

ALL-METAL HOUSING & PREMIUM FINISH
Unlike the cheaply constructed bodies of some other affordable microphones, the VR1’s all-metal housing provides efficient rejection of any electrical interference and noise – and the high-quality finish ensures a great look for years to come.

GOLD-PLATED XLR CONNECTOR
Ensures loss-free, reliable signal connection for years and years of demanding use in the studio or on tour.

This product is covered by a 2 year manufacturer warranty.

Although we are not authorised to determine if any repair is covered under warranty, if the item was purchased through World of Music, then we are often the best people to facilitate the claim for you and will do so as timely as possible. Warranty does not apply to cosmetic damage or faults that are a result of user neglect. Although your mate is really handy with a soldering iron, any product modification or home repair will also result in a void warranty.

Quite often, something perceived as a fault is as simple as a faulty cable or power issue so we always suggest checking over Frequently Asked Questions on the manufacturer website first. It can be a helpful approach to getting to the bottom of a problem and save you a lot of time in getting your gear back up and running!
