The second addition to the X1 Series, the X1 R brings the magic of traditional ribbon mics into the modern age with a tough construction that can handle any SPL. This is a ribbon you can take on the road.
The sE X1 R ribbon microphone is a high performance passive ribbon from sE Electronics. The sE Electronics X1 R is suited to a variety of recording applications including guitar cabs, overhead drums, brass, woodwind, strings, commercial broadcast and voice-over.
With a maximum SPL rating of 135dB, the sE Electronic X1R is ready to be a workhorse in your studio. Especially at its value-packed price, a pair of X1Rs would be a fantastic choice for drum overheads. You'll capture all the punch and depth of your drums, while also taming some of the extreme high frequencies from the cymbals. The X1R is also perfect for capturing the nuances of acoustic instruments, and should definitely be one of your considerations for any vocal recording too.
