Royer R-101-MP

Mono Large Ribbon Microphone, Matched Pair


A matched pair of Royer R-101 microphones.

The Royer R-101 is a mono, passive ribbon microphone featuring a patented offset-ribbon transducer and a 2.5-micron ribbon element. The R-101 is a new breed of modern ribbon microphone, designed for studio work but equally comfortable on the road. It incorporates many advancements, including multi-layered wind screening for superior protection from air blasts and plosives. The screening also provides reduced proximity effect, allowing for closer miking with less bass buildup.

The ribbon element's smooth frequency response and phase linearity impart a distinctly analog feel to digital recordings, where the warmth and realism on playback feels more like tape is rolling than digits are being counted. A perfect choice for electric guitars, brass instruments and drums, the R-101's figure-8 pattern also conveys superb ambience and depth when used for room miking applications. Like all Royer mics, the R-101 comes with a lifetime warranty to the original owner and the first re-ribbon is free.
