    sE Electronics sE X1R reviews

    sE X1R Ribbon Microphone is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for guitar cabs and sax I mainly bought this for mic'ing guitar cabinets and combo amps. It does a great job! Very warm and punchy, and not at all harsh or thin like some condensers can be on guitar amps. I have used it on sax as well and was very happy. I have not used a lot of other ribbons, so I don't have a lot to compare it to, but for the money, I think this mic is worth every penny.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for Recording DIY Accompaniments for Trombone Duets and Trios I purchased this mic to record multi voice trombone pieces (duos, trios) through an a/d converter to Garage Band that I can edit, trim and export to iTunes. I use the recorded tracks of the parts as accompaniments for practice and informal performance. I bought this mic on the recommendation of an engineer who dabbles in sound. I like the way the mic handles ambient characteristics like natural room resonance. I still have a lot to learn about getting the best recorded sound from the instrument, but even my first efforts have been useable. I like: the ease of set up and use; the sound quality and the apparent build quality of the device. I don't like: it may be more mic than I really need for this application, but time will tell. I would recommend this to a friend with a little extra money to spend on toys for the sound system. I don't know if the mic is useful for pro recording, but note that many other comments highlight the value characteristics of this mic.
