I’m a longtime sE mic user. I first started using the sE R1 & RT1-Ribbon Tube Microphone when they came out along with the Reflexion Filter years ago.

About

sE ribbon mics are fantastic on electric guitar amps, capturing really smooth overtones. I just produced a release for Cleopatra Records entitled ‘Smooth Jazz Café’ and used the VR1 on all of the guitar and horn melodies/solos. The way it sounds in the room is what you get on tape – no mushy, foggy-sounding tracks. The Voodoo reveals the real tone from fingers to guitar to amp to final mix!
