The sE R1-Ribbbon is a beautiful piece of engineering. It’s single ‘Figure of 8’ polar pattern is derived from an incredibly fine 1.8 micron Aluminium membrane.
As such the R1 has a higher-than-normal frequency roll-off (at around 7KHz), and greater sensitivity, producing a more open and natural sound than you’d expect from a ribbon mic.
The R1 is ideally suited to most recording applications including electric guitar cabs, overhead drum micing, recording brass and woodwind instruments, strings and for commercial broadcast and voice-over.
The R1 is not so much a mic for specific applications but a mic that brings a different sound for ALL your applications.
The R1 is packaged in a tough, aluminium flightcase and comes complete with shockmount.
