Within the X1 series lays the sE Electronics’ version of a classic ribbon microphone. The X1-R passive ribbon microphone is extremely versatile and can be used in a variety of situations. Even though this microphone does not offer full frequency response performance as the other microphones in this series, the developed ribbon microphone technology is what allows this microphone to have its versatility and tone. The Neodynamic magnets inside this ribbon microphone is what helps gives this microphone its smooth vintage tone.

Versatile Use
Most ribbon microphones are too sensitive to use on just anything. They have to be delicately placed and thought out on placement before you can apply them to your recording. Not the X1-R. This microphone can be used on anything from guitar cabinets to drum overhead. It has an SPL rating of 135 dB which runs a lot higher than the average vintage ribbon microphone, which gives it the ability to be so versatile.

Ribbon Mic Magnet Tech
With the X1-R ribbon microphone sE Electronics had combined their modern design on the robin microphones with top rated Neodynamic magnets to give you that vintage, smooth tone that ever-recording engineer loves. Even though it may not have the best frequency response, this microphones still offers you the most for your buck.
