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 Electronics X1 R is suited to a variety of recording applications, including guitar cabs, overhead drums, brass, woodwind, strings, commercial broadcast and voice-over.
STATE OF THE ART RIBBON ELEMENT
Enclosed by top-grade Neodymium magnets boasts some of our latest ribbon microphone technologies. We have combined our traditional ribbon technology with some of the mechanical elements of our own VR1/VR2 microphone HF (High Frequency) extension technology to bring you a classic sounding ribbon mic with a gentle HF lift.
VINTAGE SOUND WITH MODERN BUILD
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.
ALL-METAL HOUSING & PREMIUM FINISH
Unlike the cheaply constructed bodies of some other affordable microphones, the X1 R’s all-metal housing provides efficient rejection of any electrical interference and noise – and the high-quality finish ensures a great look for years to come.
