Stringed instrument and orchestra mics require one thing above all else - faithfulness. They must be faithful to the clarity and warmth of these amazing live instruments, and reproduce their sound (and the room around them) as purely as possible.

Serious sound at an affordable price.

The X1 S (cardioid)

"The X1 S also shows class here by being remarkably round, balanced and almost warm. Together with the uncolored and distortion-free character, the suitability as an all-rounder is again shown."

- Bonedo.de (full review - German)



“Sounds like a wickedly expensive high-end microphone...”

"The sound leaves no wish unanswered in any application."

Planet Music & Media

The next step up for clarity and performance.


"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)

Z5600a II

"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

The best sound that money can buy.

Gemini II (dual tube)

"I used the thing on several orchestral elements at Sony scoring and it was outstanding on everything. It's the best tympani mic I've ever used, and I typically use well-maintained 47s or 49s. Really great."

- Chris Fogel, Scoring Engineer ('The Wolf of Wall Street', 'The Secret Life of Walter Mitty', 'Old School') - sE Artist


RNT (tube + Rupert Neve transformers)

"I've worked with the best microphones in the world, and this is one of them now. It's great."

- Simon Franglen, Composer / Producer ('Avatar', 'Titanic', 'Skyfall') - sE Artist

The RN17

"The RN17 has become my desert island microphone. If there was one microphone I knew I could take with me that would get me out of trouble, it’s this...The clarity and the detail I get is wonderful."

- Simon Franglen, GRAMMY®-winning Composer / Producer / Musician ('Avatar', 'Titanic', 'Skyfall') - sE Artist
