  • Description

    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.

    "The VR1 is a fantastic ribbon. I used it this year on everything from sousaphone in New Orleans with Metric to electric guitar cabinets and drums at Electric Lady with The Kills. It's extremely true to the sound source and could handle the SPL’s of a rocket engine!" - John O'Mahony, Mixer / Producer (Vance Joy, Sarah Bareilles, Coldplay, Metric) - sE Artist

    "These ribbons are magic on overheads." - Jack Douglas, Producer/Engineer (Aerosmith, John Lennon)
