sE Electronics X1R Ribbon Microphone

Item: EXX1R

If you've ever wanted to add a ribbon mic to your collection the sE Electronics X1R is a great place to start.
Ribbon mics are very natural sounding and a lot of unique capabilities to your recording bag of tricks. They deliver great detail and accuracy in the high frequencies because of superior transient response. The default-by-design figure-of-eight (bi-directional pattern) offers some opportunities for capturing a different kind of ambience or as a tool for effective isolation of unwanted sounds.

Typical applications include: vocals, guitar cabs, brass, piano, overhreds, and strings.

The X1R shares a unique technology that sE developed for their Voodoo series of ribbon mics. It uses a mechanical acoustic filter in front of the ribbon (both front and back sides) to produce a high-frequency lift not commonly found in other ribbon designs. This extends the high end to 16KHz and above. You get extra definition, clarity, and air compared to other ribbons, without the harsh brightness that some condenser mics are known for.

  • Passive ribbon microphone with extended frequency response and higher SPL handling
