Brass Mics - sE Electronics
Brass is powerful, and requires a powerful microphone. A good brass mic emphasizes the character and depth of the sound without being abrasive or harsh, and can withstand very high SPLs without faltering.
"...it has a fairly natural sound but is capable of flattery, insomuch as it adds a little low-end warmth while keeping the highs sounding sweet."
- Paul White, Sound On Sound (full review of the sE2200a II)
"The VR mics immediately reveal their extended HF range, especially when placed alongside other ribbon mics. In fact they would stand out less in among a set of condensers."
- Robbie Stamp, Future Music / Music Radar (full review)
"Not a session goes by that I don't find a use for this versatile microphone."
- John Richardson, drummer (Gin Blossoms, Eddie Money, Will Hoge, Badfinger) - sE Artist
"I used the thing on several orchestral elements at Sony scoring and it was outstanding on everything."
- Chris Fogel, Scoring Engineer ('The Wolf of Wall Street', 'The Secret Life of Walter Mitty', 'Old School') - sE Artist
"...in comparison with a number of other well‑known ribbon mics in the tests at AIR, the RNR1 presented a real sense of 'air' and definition. At the same time, though, the character of the sound was unmistakably 'ribbon' — warm and comfortable to listen to, with a smooth, non‑fatiguing character."
