Through our friends at Karousel, the lovely people at sE Electronics have donated us a VR2 microphone to giveaway to one lucky musician. To be in the running, simply record a 20 second video of you playing your favourite track, maybe one you're currently working on! Once you're happy with it, post your video on Twitter or Facebook using #MyVoodooRibbon.
Karousel Music is a London based collective of musicians, songwriters and music industry professionals. One of the greatest additions to their 50:50 Studios community was a pair of sE Voodoo VR2 Active Ribbon Mics. Whether for guitar cabs, overheads, percussion, acoustic, vocals, violins - you name it - having a ribbon or two amongst your arsenal makes a huge difference to your recordings.
To celebrate the 15th anniversary of sE Electronics (in 2015), we're giving you the chance to get creative and post your video on Twitter or Facebook using #MyVoodooRibbon
Submissions close 3pm Friday 26 February and we'll announce the winner on Tuesday 1 March.
VR2 mics are active, which means you’re not going to blow it by putting phantom through it, and you’re not going to need to crank the gain too high with all that added noise. The list of artists using the Voodoo ribbons on stage and in the studio is impressive: Billy Gibbons, Steve Stevens, My Morning Jacket, Ken "Pooch" Van Druten (Linkin Park), Andy Meyer (Justin Timberlake), Greg Price (Black Sabbath) and many more.
Chris Dauray, Brand Manager at sE Electronics said: "Being a professional musician isn't always easy, and we have enormous respect for what Help Musicians UK does to support those in need."
Chris Sheehan, Director at Karousel: “We’re all about making introductions that might help musicians out - so we were very happy that our friends at sE were keen to help too...The VR2 is a great choice!
We’ve already experienced first hand the remarkable work HMUK does - we’ve seen them save several musicians from intolerable hardship when they thought there was nowhere to turn. The work they are now also doing for emerging artists is something we think will make a decisive difference for some the next generation of great UK acts.”
