The VR1 ribbon microphone marks a new era in ribbon technology. Whereas most ribbon microphones have a dark, muted high-frequency response, the VR1 utilizes a clever mechanical device to achieve nearly full-range frequency response that extends well beyond that of most other ribbon microphones, approaching nearly 20kHz. This provides an extended level of top- end detail, so the result includes not only the distinctly natural low-end and midrange that most ribbons provide, but also minimal loss in high frequency content. Guitar and brass tones retain their “edge”, cymbals still sound rich and full, and a supremely natural sound is achieved from top to bottom.

Additionally, the VR1 can handle very high sound pressure levels and thus can be utilized for applications not normally considered for most ribbon microphones, including loud brass, drums, and electric guitar cabinets, both in the studio and on stage.

The VR1 is a passive ribbon, so it does not require phantom power – though it is “phantom- protected”, so it will not be damaged by accidental application of phantom power. Given its lower output, it is ideally suited for loud sources such as electric guitars, drum overheads, and brass.
