Description

Royer R-101 is a mono, passive ribbon microphone suitable for home studio use and live applications. It is hand-crafted in the USA and uses an offset-ribbon transducer and a 2.5-micron ribbon element.

Royer R-101 – Features

  • High SPL capabilities for electric guitar and percussion
  • Multi-layered wind screen provides superior protection to ribbon element
  • No internal electronics to overload or produce distortion up to maximum SPL rating
  • Extremely low residual noise
  • Ribbon element not affected by heat or humidity
  • Absence of high-frequency peaks, “ringing” and phase shifts
  • Equal sensitivity from front or back of element

Royer R-101 – Applications

  • Close miking
  • Electric and acoustic guitars
  • Drum overheads, kick drum (see manual for position), room miking
  • Percussion instruments
  • Brass, horn sections
  • Strings-solo & sections
  • Acoustic piano
  • Vocals
  • Live events-recording and sound reinforcement

The R-101 is a new breed of modern ribbon microphone, designed for studio work and demanding live applications (particularly live electric guitar and brass). It incorporates many features pioneered by Royer Labs, including an advanced multi-layered wind screen for superior protection from air blasts and plosives, our patented offset-ribbon transducer, an internally shock mounted ribbon transducer system which provides greater isolation from shocks and vibrations, and reduced proximity effect for closer miking with less bass buildup. Throw it on a guitar cabinet, hit record, play it back, smile.

The ribbon element’s smooth frequency response and phase linearity impart a warm, analog feel to digital recordings, where the depth and realism on playback feels more like tape rolling than digits being computed. 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.
