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-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.
The result is a superbly detailed, open and natural recording of acoustic instruments and guitar cabs. The VR1 & VR2's ability to perform - coupled with their unique look - have already made them a secret weapon for top musicians and engineers worldwide.
