Description

The VR2 is your new "secret weapon" active ribbon mic, providing all the midrange magic of a traditional ribbon without sacrificing the edge of your high frequencies.

The VR2 active ribbon microphone from sE marks a new era for ribbon mic technology, achieving full-range frequency response using a clever mechanical device designed by Siwei Zou, the company CEO, a custom transformer and active circuitry, 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, vocals and guitar cabs. The VR2's ability to perform - coupled with its unique look - has already made it a secret weapon for top musicians and engineers worldwide.

"I love the added air at the top end; they deliver more high-end than traditional ribbons. Drums have become very open and natural, and cymbals no longer hurt."

- Ryan Pickett, FOH Engineer (My Morning Jacket, Ray LaMontagne)

CUSTOM RIBBON & ACTIVE CIRCUITRY FOR EXTENDED FREQUENCY RESPONSE

Unlike traditional ribbons, which can sometimes sound very dull in the high frequencies, the VR2's clever mechanical design helps the mic achieve an extended frequency response that preserves the bite and edge of your guitar cabs or cymbals, while still smoothing out any harshness. And the transformers and active circuitry provide enough gain for any source you need to mic.

VERSATILE CUSTOM SHOCK MOUNT

The VR2's custom-built shock mount allows not only for isolation from mechanical vibration, but also for versatile, flexible mic placement. The lower portion of the mount can be centered inside the mount for extra protection, or flip to outside the mount so the VR2 can reach underneath a snare or be pressed flat against a speaker grille cloth.

WOODEN CASE AND ACCESSORIES

Each VR2 comes complete inside a wooden presentation box, and includes a mic clip, mic stand thread adapter, and custom shock mount.

Why a handcrafted ribbon?

...because they sound better that way.

As with all of sE's ribbons and true condensers, the VR2’s ribbon element is handcrafted and hand-tuned by skilled technicians in our own factory. This is almost unheard-of for affordable microphones, and is a great point of pride for sE.
