Presented in a green "hammered" finish with a chrome grille, the sE Electronics VR1 Vintage Edition Passive Ribbon Microphone features a hand-tensioned aluminum ribbon and passive electronics that are designed to protect the ribbon element from phantom power. It is tuned to deliver the classic sonic characteristics of ribbon mics along with the extended high-frequency traits normally associated with condenser microphones. Since it can handle high SPLs, it can be used on loud sources such as drums and guitar cabs as well as acoustic instruments.Like most ribbons, the VR1 has a traditional figure-8 polar pattern, so it will pick up some ambient sound behind the mic. Equipped with a balanced XLR 3-pin output, the VR1 can be connected to your audio interface, mixer, or external mic preamp; one with robust gain is recommended for optimal performance. The supplied shockmount reduces vibration and stand-borne noise while providing added visual flair. A wooden case is included for safe storage between sessions. Ribbon microphones have a dark, muted high-frequency response, the Voodoo VR1 utilizes a clever mechanical device to achieve nearly full-range frequency response that extends well beyond that of most other ribbon microphones, approaching nearly 20 kHz. Additionally, the VR1 can handle very-high sound pressure levels and thus can be utilized for applications not normally considered for most ribbon microphones, including loud brass, drums, and electric guitar cabinets, both in the studio and on stage.
