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)
