sE Electronics X1 R Ribbon Microphone
Ribbon microphones have been around since the early days of radio, and are often used for a thicker, more "vintage" sound. However, with thoroughly modern technologies and materials, sE has developed a range of mics that don't suffer from the lack of high-frequency detail plaguing most ribbons, so you can keep all the ribbon midrange magic without sacrificing your highs.
The X1 R is a rugged ribbon for any purpose.
Drawing on some of the technologies in our VR1 & VR2 ribbon mics, the X1 R is a vintage-modern hybrid that provides all the inherent smoothness of a hand-crafted ribbon mic, but with more versatility, durability, and ease of use than the delicate ribbons of yesteryear.
The second addition to the X1 Series, the X1 R brings the magic of traditional ribbon mics into the modern age with a tough construction that can handle any SPL. This is a ribbon you can take on the road.
The sE X1 R ribbon microphone is a high performance passive ribbon from sE Electronics. The sE Electronics X1 R is suited to a variety of recording applications including guitar cabs, overhead drums, brass, woodwind, strings, commercial broadcast and voice-over.
