sE Electronics Voodoo VR1
The passive Voodoo VR1 microphone by sE Electronics is ideal for recording guitar/bass cabs and acoustic instruments. With the latest ribbon mic technology, detailed recording can be achieved to reveal high frequencies.
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.
The Voodoo VR1's detailed recording ability and unique design has made this ribbon mic popular with musicians worldwide.

"I'm a songwriter, not an engineer, and whatever gets me there the quickest is what I'm going to use. That's why I like this microphone - it's a no-brainer!"
