The SE Electronics VR2 is an active ribbon that can take violins and voices right to the foreground of your listener's stereo.The Voodoo ribbon microphones from sE mark a new era for ribbon mic technology.
Until the Voodoo Series, the only ribbon mic in the world to perform across 20Hz-20kHz was sE's own Rupert Neve collaboration, the RNR1. This was achieved using state-of-the-art custom transformers and a Rupert Neve-designed circuit to reveal HF usually absent.
With the Voodoo mics, full frequency response is achieved using a clever mechanical device designed by Siwei Zou, the company CEO, and a hand-tensioned ribbon constructed by our highly specialized technicians in sE's capsule room. The result is a superbly detailed, open and natural recording of acoustic instruments and guitar cabs. The Voodoo's ability to perform - coupled with its unique look - have already made it a secret weapon for thousands of players worldwide.
"If you like the idea of a ribbon sound but find traditional ribbon mics a touch too dull, the Voodoos might just win you over. Both mics respond well to EQ and their smooth but extended top end might see them being used in situations where you'd normally pick a capacitor model." - Paul White, Sound On Sound (full review)
"These ribbons are magic on overheads." - Jack Douglas, Producer/Engineer (Aerosmith, John Lennon)

Finally, there is a ribbon microphone that sounds fantastic, does what is expected, and doesn't cost a fortune! This Voodoo microphone is phantom powered and is not as delicate as your typical vintage ribbon. By design they are more sensitive, but this ribbon is capable of handling high SPL's, making it great for guitar cabinets, vocals, and even as a drum overhead. The figure-8 pickup pattern is great for getting a good room tone or for picking up multiple singers at once. Overall a great versatile mic that sounds amazing on acoustic or electric guitar!
