sE Electronics guitaRF Reflexion Filter / Mic Stand
Product Code: SEEL_GUITARF
sE Electronics guitaRF® helps get your amp sounding just the way you want.
*Mics not included, shown for example only!
The guitaRF acts as an RF (Reflexion Filter®), an isolator, a double mic stand, and fine-positioning hardware for both your favorite large-diaphragm condenser or ribbon mic AND a dynamic or small-capsule mic. All in one piece of gear, with the ability to perfectly phase-align the two capsules for maximum impact.
For years now, some of our biggest FOH engineer clients (running sound for Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Black Sabbath, Paramore, My Morning Jacket, and more) have known that putting a Reflexion Filter in front of their amp cabinets can help reduce stage bleed into their guitar mics. This is especially true with some of our favorite guitar mics like the VR1 and RNR1 ribbons, since they naturally have a figure-8 pattern that leaves them open to whatever else is happening on stage.
This doesn't just help the FOH mix either. Using an RF on a guitar cab or drums can make the multitrack of a live show significantly easier to mix.
Until now, our FOH engineer clients have had to devise their own custom-assembled solutions to help deal with this problem. Now, enter the guitaRF.
With the guitaRF, these custom rigs are now available as an off-the-shelf solution so anyone can get the guitar sounds they're looking for, with minimal stage bleed and coloration.
Not just for live sound.
The guitaRF is equally useful in the studio as well - in fact, when the original Reflexion Filter PRO debuted in 2006, Sound on Sound magazine had this to say:
"I used the Reflexion Filter as a mini-gobo, which made the guitar sound as if it was about half an inch from your face. In my view this product really makes it that bit easier to get a 'pro-studio' sound at home."
