sE Electronics rocks too with their Voodoo VR1 mic, which is one of the coolest, most affordable ribbon mics out there. Based on some of the innovations sE created when they made the world-famous RNR1 ribbon mic, sE Electronics designed the Voodoo VR1, an affordable, passive ribbon microphone. Designed by sE Electronics' CEO Siwei Zou, the Voodoo VR1 performs amazingly well across its 20Hz-18kHz frequency response. It can be used on an array of sound sources, and the Voodoo VR1 truly shines on acoustic instruments and guitar cabinets.

Incredible ribbon performance for an affordable price
Ribbon microphones have an unmistakeable warm and true tone that is indispensable in a recording studio. Unfortunately, most ribbons are prohibitively expensive for many engineers. sE Electronics heard the calls for an affordable ribbon mic and introduced the Voodoo VR1 passive ribbon. Now you can get all of that detailed clear sound from a true ribbon mic, at a price anyone can afford.

One of the first full-frequency ribbon microphones
Before the Voodoo series was released, the only full-frequency ribbon mic was sE Electronics' own RNR1, designed in conjunction with Rupert Neve. An amazing mic in its own right, the RNR1 isn't cheap. And rightfully so. But the industry was turned on its head when sE Electronics also released the Voodoo series, claiming much of the same performance, but at a price well below the original. Thanks to an ingenious electrical circuit, you can now get that full-frequency sound for your recording budget.
