Product Overview The 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 Features • Passive Type Ribbon Microphone

sE Electronics X1R, Professional Ribbon Microphone, Bi-directional (Figure 8) Pattern, Wired, 3 Pin XLR Connector is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just buy one! (or two even) I've only used this mic for a couple of sessions but so far it's been amazing, especially for the price. I bought it because I was lacking a ribbon mic in my collection and was never happy with the vocal sound I got recording my band's vocalist. Suffice to say, this mic fits the bill for his vocal tremendously. Not only that, it sounds amazing on my boutique valve amp. It captures it perfectly as if you were standing in front of the amp! And drums too. I positioned it about 3 foot away from the kit and 2 foot above the floor, just above the kick, aimed towards the rack toms and snare. Just using this one mic alone I got a very useable drum sound, reminiscent of those fab recordings of bands like the Kinks and the Jimi Hendrix Experience. Mixed in the spot mics to complement and job done! I was concerned that I might have to purchase a Cloud mic booster to get the best out of it but so far it's done just fine going through a dbx 386 and even Behringer ADA8200. I will attempt recording acoustic guitar with it next week so maybe the Cloud booster will be required for that, we'll see. Overall, for the money, you can't got wrong with this mic, I love it! Am considering buying another one.
