SE Electronics' VR1 Vintage Edition passive ribbon microphone delivers an open natural sound across the full frequency spectrum and is especially well suited to acoustic instruments and guitar cabinets. The VR1's smooth extended high end separates it from traditional ribbon mics, rivaling condensers without being too bright. Plus, its high SPL tolerance (135dB) and low self-noise (18dB) means it can capture everything from a whisper to a scream with grace and no distortion. The Vintage Edition comes in a retro green hammered finish with a brushed chrome grille.

The VR1 is compact and easy to place, an attribute that comes in handy when recording instruments like violins and mandolins. The microphone's ability to record with virtually no coloration makes it an ideal choice for room miking drums, ensembles, or even capturing audio for sound design applications. With a figure-8 pickup pattern, the VR1 is the quintesential side mic for a mid-side stereo configuration.

A unique vintage design also sets the VR1 apart from every other mic in your cabinet. What you can't see is just as unique. Integrated custom transformers and a hand-tensioned ribbon combine to give the VR1 its uncanny ability to reproduce the source as your ears hear it.
