Royer R-101 - Mono Ribbon Microphone

The Royer R-101 is a hand built, mono ribbon microphone that follows in the footsteps of the flagship R-121, but comes in at a lower price point for smaller studios and live applications. The R-101 features Royer's patented offset-ribbon transducer, a 2.5-micron ribbon element and an advanced multi-layered wind screen for protection against plosives and air blasts.

The R-101 has been designed with both studio and live use in mind with it excelling on electric guitar cabinets and brass instruments. The smooth frequency response helps warm up any recording whilst a reduced proximity effect helps reduce bass build-up on closer mic placements.

The R-101 is a passive ribbon mic, so be sure to check Phantom Power is off when the mic is plugged in to avoid damaging the ribbon element.
