sE Electronics sE X1R Ribbon Microphone Details

The sE Electronics sE X1R Ribbon Microphone is the new high performance passive ribbon from sE Electronics. The sE Electronics X1R is suited to a variety of recording applications including guitar cabs, overhead drums, brass, woodwind, strings, commercial broadcast and voice-over.

This state of the art ribbon element enclosed by top grade Neodymium magnets boasts some of the latest ribbon microphone technologies from sE Electronics. We have combined our traditional ribbon technology with some of the mechanical elements of our patented Voodoo microphone HF (High Frequency) extension technology to bring you a classic sounding ribbon mic with a gentle HF lift.

The sEX1R does not offer the full frequency response performance of the Voodoo VR1 / VR2 and the widely acclaimed sE Rupert Neve RNR1, but a hybrid of old and new ribbon technology which gives you all the natural beauty of the ribbon sound, but with more versatility and ease of use than the majority of ribbons on today's market.

The sE X1R also draws on the chassis and design elements of the hugely successful sE X1 Cardioid Condenser Microphone to bring you exceptional performance, and the hand-crafted capsule quality you expect from all sE mics, but at a fraction of the cost of other boutique brands.

The sE X1R really is the perfect ribbon mic for the first time project studio buyer, or a great addition of new character to your microphone collection.

SE X1R The Ultimate Sleeper Ribbon Mic July 24, 2015
Reviewer: Rob Coates from Rochester MN United States  
This review is going to sound like I work for the company. I don't. I've had and demoed many, many inexpensive and spendy ribbon mics over the past ten years. When I first read the description of the sE X1R, I was interested in the assertion that it had an extended top end. I ordered one, not expecting much as I'd heard this claim before. When I got the mic, I put it through it's paces. I was astounded. Not only did it deliver on the claim of extended top end, but it sounded just great overall. In fact one of the best ribbons I've ever heard. Another bonus was discovering it had a much hotter output than any of my other ribbons (which include some I modded myself and one from a high end custom ribbon mic maker). It sounds similar to a vintage Fostex printed ribbon mic (which I had at the time I got the X1R) only better and with a hotter output.
