The VR1's ability to perform - coupled with its unique look - has already made it a secret weapon for top musicians and engineers worldwide.

Until the VR Series, the only ribbon mic in the world to perform across 20Hz-20kHz was sE Electronics 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 VR 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 highly specialized technicians in sE's capsule room. The result is a superbly detailed, open and natural recording of acoustic instruments and guitar cabs.
