Royer Labs RSM-SS1 Sling-Shock Microphone Shock Mount (Royer Labs RSM-SS1 Sling-Shock Microphone Shock Mount)

Royer Labs RSM-SS1 Sling-Shock Microphone Shock Mount

The Royer RSM-SS1 Sling-Shock™ is a revolutionary departure from traditional shock mount designs. The Sling-Shock is hand-built in Burbank, CA facility using only the finest materials. Royer done away with the rubberized parts and elastic cords, producing a durable shock mount that gives superior isolation from vibrations.

The proprietary system of non-resonant nylon cable and damped steel springs acts to isolate the microphone from vibrations induced from the microphone stand. These vibrations can appear as rumble and/or low-grade noises which create disturbances across the bandwidth, from low end thumps to harmonic disturbances at different frequencies. The Sling-Shock's superior vibration-reduction capabilities and lack of self-resonance allow engineers to capture performances free of vibration-related interference across the bandwidth.

The Sling-Shock RSM-SS1 is sized to fit Royer's 1-inch diameter R-121, R-122, R-122V, SF-1 and SF-12 ribbon microphones. Any cylindrical microphone measuring approximately one inch in diameter (+/- 1/8 inch) will work with the model RSM-SS1. The RSM-SS24 accommodates Royer SF-2, SF-24 and SF-24V microphones.

RSM-SS1 Sling Shock Features:

  • Superior isolation from vibration and shocks
  • Felt-lined, scratch-free microphone chamber holds mic securely
  • No rubberized parts to degrade or stretch
  • Flexible for easy microphone positioning
  • Lifetime warranty

Microphone Cable Clip

Low-level vibrations can be transferred through the mic cable and into the microphone. Incorporated into the sling-shock's design is a microphone cable clip. This feature is highly effective at further reducing vibrations from being coupled to the microphone through the microphone's cable.

Royer Labs R-122V Tube Ribbon Microphone (Royer Labs R-122V Tube Ribbon Microphone)
The R-122V is the pinnacle of our R-Series line, a world class tube ribbon microphone exhibiting unparalleled richness, depth and detail, particularly in the midrange frequencies. With a lushness that has to be heard to be truly appreciated, the R-122V offers the ultimate in ribbon microphone performance for those who insist on the very best.

The R-122V takes the Royer-pioneered concept of active ribbon microphone technology to an unprecedented level by incorporating vacuum tube electronics into the same proven transducer system used in the venerable R-121 and R-122 ribbon microphones. The high operating voltage of the vacuum tube provides headroom far beyond that available from a standard phantom power supply. Sonically this translates into unmatched clarity, detail and airiness, along with the ability to handle brute SPL levels without flinching.

The Electronics

The R-122V's head amplifier consists of a low-noise, triode-connected military grade 5840 vacuum tube. Designed for a wide range of applications, the R-122V offers superb transient response and the drive capabilities only a vacuum tube head amplifier can provide. The circuit is devoid of typical vacuum tube coloration.

The R-122V's triode-configured cathode follower circuitry enables the microphone to drive long cable runs without sonic degradation or high-frequency loss. This capability is further enhanced by the R-122V's dedicated power supply, which provides ample current to the vacuum tube electronics. Induced noise is virtually eliminated by the microphone's fully balanced output, which is electrically isolated with a special purpose Jensen output transformer.

Like our phantom powered R-122, the R-122V has far more level than non-powered ribbon microphones and its impedance matching circuitry places a perfect load on the ribbon element at all times. This allows the use of a wide variety of mic preamps without concern for gain and impedance matches, two critical issues with ribbon microphones. All of the R122V's increased output comes from its large, specially designed toroidal transformer, so there is no additional noise associated with the microphone's higher output.

Patented Offset Ribbon Technology

The R-122's proprietary offset ribbon transducer (Patent Number: 6,434,252) positions the ribbon element closer to the front (logo) side of the microphone than the rear. This arrangement gives the ribbon more room to move within the prime magnetic field while maintaining full frequency response during high SPL recordings. It's an integral piece of the magic of all Royer R-series microphones.

Phantom powered circuitry provides high output and impedance matching High SPL capabilities (130 dB @ 70 Hz) No distortion up to maximum SPL rating Extremely low residual noise Ribbon element not affected by heat or humidity Absence of high frequency phase distortion. Equal sensitivity from front and back of microphone Consistent frequency response regardless of distance High efficiency toroidal transformer and gold plated output connector Very low magnetic leakage Matte Black finish reduces reflected light for live and on-camera use

Royer Labs R-121 Live Studio Ribbon Microphone (Royer Labs R-121 Live Studio Ribbon Microphone)

Royer Labs R-121 Live Studio Ribbon Microphone

The Royer 121 Live is a ruggedized version of our popular R-121 ribbon microphone. The studio R-121 is tough and has been used on the road for years, but the increased durability of the R-121 Live gives FOH engineers greater confidence in the ribbon standing up to the rigors of the road.

The R-121 Live’s output level is comparable to a dynamic mic, and it delivers the warm, realistic tone that only a ribbon mic can. Along with its smooth, natural response, the R-121 Live virtually eliminates the shrill high-end often associated with live guitars and brass. Push up the faders and there’s the instrument in all its fullness and natural glory, minus the peaky highs that FOH and Monitor engineers spend so much of their careers fighting.

The R-121 Live is visually differentiated by its red logo. The ribbon element thickness is increased from 2.5 microns to 4-microns, giving the microphone greater durability and a slightly reduced high end response. Highs are often rolled off in live performances, but due to the R-121 Live’s exceptionally smooth high frequency response, it needs far less eq’ing than is usually required with condenser and dynamic microphones.

The R-121 Live is backed with Royer’s lifetime warranty to the original owner, and the first re-ribbon is free. We expect it to work as hard as you do, so we stand behind it the whole way. As with any high end microphone, proper storage during transit and careful handling during setup and breakdown is key to keeping the microphone in good working order.

Figure-8’s On Stage

The R-121 Live’s pickup pattern is figure-8, which can be used to control stage bleed with great effect. Side rejection in the null points is strong – position the mics “ears” to face the offending instrument(s) and bleed will be virtually eliminated. The top and bottom of the microphone are also null points. If monitors are in close proximity to the rear side of the microphone, a positioning adjustment can place the monitors output in the mic’s null, isolating the monitor from the mic’s pickup areas.

Patented Offset Ribbon Technology

The R-121 Live’s proprietary offset ribbon transducer (Patent # 6,434,252) is the first of its kind, positioning the ribbon element closer to the front (logo) side of the microphone. This arrangement gives the ribbon more room to move within the prime magnetic field while maintaining full frequency response on high SPL applications. It’s an integral piece of the magic of all Royer R-series microphones.

The Sound

We’ve always said Royers “hear like your ears.” Put one up and you’ll know what we mean.

The R-121 accurately reproduces what you hear at the sound source. Most microphones add their own characteristics – they all serve a purpose and have their place on stage. But if your goal is to capture something the way it really sounds – that ripping electric guitar, that wailing trumpet, that full kit – and you’ve found that reproducing that sound was next to impossible, put up some Royer Live Series mics and get ready. The R-121’s response is flat and well balanced, with a deep, non-boomy low end, well defined and realistic mids, and a smooth and natural sounding high end response that’s never edgy or sibilant.

When it’s time to mix the band, push up the faders and you’ll see why FOH engineers love their R-121’s on electric guitars and brass. When the instruments sound real, fitting them into the live mix is a breeze.

LOUD GUITARS!

Your guitarist likes insane levels? No problem! The R-121 Live’s maximum SPL rating is 135dB at 20 Hz and it can handle that all day, every day. In practical terms, that means you can put your R-121 in front of a souped up 100-watt Marshall and open it up without microphone distortion or damage to the ribbon. We don’t recommend trying this with other ribbon mics, but the R-121 Live was built to take it.

2 Mics In One

At distances of two feet and closer, the back of the Royer R-121 is brighter than the front side. The difference in the sound is somewhat like blending 10% of a condenser mic in with your ribbon mic signal. This can be extremely useful when you record acoustic guitars, vocals, and other sound sources that you may want to hear a little more top end on.

Royer R-121 Dynamic Ribbon Microphone Features:

  • High SPL Capabilities
  • No internal active electronics to overload or produce distortion up to maximum SPL rating
  • Extremely low residual noise

Royer Labs R-122 MKII Ribbon Microphone (Royer Labs R-122 MKII Ribbon Microphone)

Royer Labs R-122 MKII Ribbon Microphone

A phantom powered ribbon microphone that's very sensitive and features a faster transient response.

The Royer R-122 MKII is a compact, monaural, phantom powered ribbon microphone with a switchable -15 dB pad and a low cut filter. Sonically similar to Royer's groundbreaking R-121, the R-122 MKII exhibits a flat frequency response and a well-balanced, panoramic soundfield, but it’s 13 dB more sensitive and has a faster transient response, giving a sense of more open highs. Like the R-121, it is capable of handling high SPL applications.

The R-122 MKII’s -15 dB pad is positioned before any other electronics, giving the microphone 15 dB more headroom for high SPL work. The low cut filter is configured to reduce proximity effect for close miking and vocal applications and effectively filters rumble.

The R-122 MKII’s active electronics produce an output comparable to studio condenser microphones and provide an optimum impedance to the ribbon element, preventing overdamping of the ribbon and assuring consistent micro- phone performance. The high gain and low output impedance of the R-122 allow it to operate with any microphone preamplifier with phantom power, and also allows for use with long cable runs.

The R-122 MKII utilizes a low mass, 2.5-micron, pure (99.99%) aluminum ribbon element in a patented offset-ribbon transducer assembly. The smooth frequency response and phase linearity of the R-122 MKII, coupled with its sophisticated active electronics system, enable it to deliver a consistent natural acoustic perfor- mance with extraordinary realism. Frequency response is excellent regardless of the angle of sound striking the ribbon, and off-axis coloration is negligible.

The R-122’s patented offset-ribbon design positions the ribbon element toward the front of the microphone body, which allows for high SPL handling on the front (logo) side and the option of a slightly brighter response when recording lower SPL sound sources on the back side (3 feet and closer; phase reversed in this position).

Royer R-122 MKII FEATURES

  • Active electronics provide high output capability, optimal impedance to the ribbon element, extremely low self-noise and low output impedance
  • -15 dB pad and low cut filter provide greater flexibility and increased headroom
  • High SPL capabilities for electric guitar and percussion instruments
  • Absence of high frequency peaks, "ringing" and phase shifts

Royer Labs R-121 Studio Ribbon Microphone (Royer Labs R-121 Studio Ribbon Microphone)

Royer Labs R-121 Studio Ribbon Microphone

The Royer 121, originally released in 1998, is Royer's flagship microphone and the model that reintroduced ribbon mics to engineers around the world. Royer did away with the large, heavy, fragile "classic" approach to ribbon microphones and went in a completely new direction. The R-121 gives all of the warmth and natural sound that experienced engineers have long turned to ribbon mics for, but in a compact, light-weight, high output and tough-as-nails package that was unheard of in a ribbon mic before the R-121. In its 10+ years in the market, thousands of R-121's have been sold around the world and it's well established as a standard for tracking electric guitar and brass.

The R-121 redefined ribbon microphones so completely that Recording Magazine wrote "...the Royer R-121 is destined to become one of the classic microphones of the 21st century."

Like many of the best classic ribbon mics, the R-121 has a figure-8 pattern, output level comparable to a dynamic mic, and a warm, realistic tone and flat frequency response. But that's where the similarities end. By using advanced materials and a blend of cutting edge and old-school, hand-build construction techniques, the R-121 is an extremely versatile and user-friendly ribbon mic that can stand up to the most demanding tasks. Cranked up electric guitars, close up brass, drums - you name it, the R-121 will help you record it with realism you have to hear to believe.

Royer build the R-121 solid enough to give it a lifetime warranty. They expect you to own it for as long as you record, and we'll stand behind it the whole way.

Royer Labs R-122 MKII Live Ribbon Microphone (Royer Labs R-122 MKII Live Ribbon Microphone)

Royer Labs R-122 MKII Live Ribbon Microphone

A phantom powered ribbon microphone that's very sensitive and features a faster transient response.

The Royer R-122 MKII Live is a road-optimized version of our phantom powered R-122 MK-ll ribbon microphone. The R-122 MKll Live’s output is on par with phantom powered condenser mics, allowing for long cable runs and the occasional sub-par mic preamps, and its switchable -15 dB pad and bass-cut filter deliver unprecedented flexibility on electric guitars, drum overheads, trumpets and other live instruments. Most importantly, it produces the warm, realistic sounds that only ribbon mics can deliver. Along with its smooth, natural response, the R-122 MKll Live virtually eliminates the shrill high-end often encountered with live guitars, brass and drum cymbals. Push up the faders and there’s the instrument in all its fullness, minus the peaky highs that FOH and Monitor engineers spend so much of their careers fighting.
The Pad:

The R-122 MKll’s switchable -15 dB pad is positioned before the microphone’s electronics and, when engaged, eliminates headroom-related distortion or preamplifier overload on even the loudest sound sources. Wide open electric guitars are no problem. With the pad in, the R-122 MKll’s output is actually 2 dB lower than our flagship R-121.
The Bass Cut:

When switched in, the R-122 MKll’s bass cut starts filtering at 100 Hz, 6 dB per octave, effectively reducing the mic’s bass buildup due to proximity effect. This smooth filter is extremely useful on close-miked electric guitars when less bottom end is desired.
The R-122 MKll’s electronics are hand-wired in our Burbank, CA factory. The microphone utilizes a special Royer-designed toroidal transformer that delivers a faster transient response then traditional ribbons. This produces a tighter, more focused low end and a sense of more open highs than with traditional ribbons, making it a first call ribbon mic for drum overheads and percussion. The R-122 MKll Live can be used on extremely long cable runs with minimal RF interference and signal loss, and the ribbon element cannot be damaged by phantom power, miswired cables or electrical glitches.
The R-122 MKll Live is visually differentiated by its red logo. The ribbon element thickness is increased from 2.5-microns to 4-microns, giving the microphone greater durability and a slightly reduced high end response. Highs are often rolled off in live performances, but due to the R-122 MKll Live’s smooth high frequency response, it needs less eq’ing than is usually required with condenser and dynamic microphones.
The R-122 MKll Live is backed with Royer’s lifetime warranty to the original owner, and the first re-ribbon is free. We expect it to work as hard as you do, so we stand behind it all the way. As with any high end microphone, proper storage during transit and careful handling during setup and breakdown is key to keeping the microphone in good working order.

Side rejection in the null points is strong – simply position the mics “ears” to face the offending instrument(s) and bleed will be virtually eliminated. The top and bottom of the microphone are also null points. If monitors are in close proximity to the rear side of the microphone, a positioning adjustment can place the monitors output in the mic’s null, isolating the monitor from the mic’s pickup areas.

Royer Labs SF-2 Ribbon Microphone (Royer Labs SF-2 Ribbon Microphone)
The SF-2 ribbon microphone is a phantom powered version of our original SF-1 ribbon microphone. Designed primarily for classical applications and acoustic instruments, the SF-2 combines high-quality audio performance with our exclusive active electronics for ribbon microphones. The SF-2's output of -38 dB puts its sensitivity on par with that of phantom powered condenser microphones, allowing it to be used with a wide variety of mic pre's regardless of gain characteristics. The unique electronics and custom designed FET's used in the SF-2 deliver ultra-quiet operation, with self-noise of lower than 18 dB.

The SF-2's magnet/pole piece transducer structure gives a wide, uniform frequency response with no substantial peaks or dips, and the 1.8-micron ribbon element delivers superb transient response. Frequency response is excellent regardless of the angle of sound striking the ribbon and off-axis coloration is negligible.

Gain

Our Active Series ribbon mics are as sensitive as phantom powered condenser microphones, allowing you to use virtually any mic preamplifier or board pre. Conventional ribbon microphones are 15 to 30 dB less sensitive than condenser mics, necessitating the use of high-quality, high-gain microphone preamplifiers when recording quieter sound sources like acoustic instruments, vocals, room ambiance, etc. The SF-2 contains a fully balanced, discrete head amplifier system which utilizes a specially wound toroidal transformer and ultra-low noise FET's to deliver a sensitivity of -38 dB. Even with extremely quiet sound sources, you'll have enough level to drive any recording medium.

The SF-2's electronics create no additional self-noise. All of the SF-2's higher output comes from its large, specially wound toroidal transformer which provides an additional 14 dB of 'free gain.' The phantom powered system operates at less than unity, adding no noise of its own.

Impedance Matching

The electronics in the SF-2 provide a perfect load to the ribbon element at all times, allowing the microphone to deliver 100% of its full sonic potential regardless of the input characteristics of the following mic-pre. Due to its low-impedance output, SF-2's can be used on extremely long cable runs with minimal signal loss.

A proper impedance match is critical to the performance of ribbon microphones. Impedance mismatching loads a ribbon element improperly, resulting in loss of low end and body, lower sensitivity, and an overall diminished performance. With our Active Series ribbon mics, the ribbon element sees a perfect impedance at all times regardless of the preamp you choose, so its performance is never compromised by the effects of improper loading. In addition, the ribbon element cannot be damaged by phantom power, electrical glitches or miswired cables.

The SF-2 Story

Twenty prototype SF-2's circulated in major studios and scoring stages for years before the microphone's release. They were extremely well received in classical circles, where they excel on choir, piano, woodwinds, strings and many other applications. They were also well received in studios focusing more on acoustic instruments, singer/songwriters, etc. We couldn't get most of the prototypes back...


The SF-2 ships in an aluminum presentation case with an SFS-2 shock mount, mic sock, documentation and manual.

The optional SF-2 Deluxe packaging includes a beautiful Padauk wood presentation case, a Royer-made 20' microphone cable, a premium RSM-24 shock mount, documentation and manual, all packaged in an aluminum carrying/storage case.

Gain

Our active ribbon™ mics (SF-24 and R-122) are as sensitive as phantom powered condenser microphones, allowing you to use virtually any mic preamplifier or board pre. Conventional ribbon microphones are 15 to 30 dB less sensitive than condenser mics, necessitating the use of high-quality, high-gain microphone preamplifiers when recording softer sound sources like acoustic instruments, vocals and room ambiance. The SF-24 contains two fully balanced, discrete head amplifier systems utilizing specially wound toroidal transformers and ultra-low noise FET's, each delivering a sensitivity of -38 dB. This lets you mate an SF-24 to any preamplifier with average gain characteristics. Even with quiet sound sources, you'll have enough level to drive any recording medium.

It is important to note that the SF-24's higher sensitivity does not create additional self-noise. All of the SF-24's increased level comes from its large, specially wound toroidal transformers - that wonderful thing called "free gain." The level at the each of the transformers is actually hotter than what comes out of the microphone. The phantom powered system operates at less than unity, adding no noise of its own. This system took years to develop and is in patent pending status.

Impedance Matching

The electronics in the SF-24 provide a perfect load to the ribbon elements at all times, allowing the microphone to deliver 100% of its full sonic potential regardless of the input characteristics of the following mic-pre. Due to its low-impedance output, SF-24's can also be used on extremely long cable runs with minimal signal loss.

A good impedance match is critical to ribbon microphones. Impedance mis-matching loads a ribbon improperly, resulting in loss of low end, diminished body, lowered sensitivity and an overall compromised performance. With our Active Series ribbon mics, the ribbon element sees a perfect impedance at all times, regardless of the preamp you use, so its performance will never be compromised by the effects of improper loading. In addition, the ribbon element cannot be damaged by phantom power, electrical glitches or miswired cables.

Phantom powered circuitry provides high output and impedance matching True stereophonic (Blumlein and M-S) recording from one microphone High SPL capabilities No distortion up to maximum SPL rating< Extremely low residual noise Ribbon elements are not affected by heat or humidity Absence of high frequency phase distortion Equal sensitivity from front or back of elements Consistent frequency response regardless of distance High efficiency, matching toroidal transformers Very low magnetic leakage

Royer Labs SF-24V Vacuum Tube Stereo Ribbon Microphone (Royer Labs SF-24V Vacuum Tube Stereo Ribbon Microphone)

Royer Labs SF-24V Vacuum Tube Stereo Ribbon Microphone

A vacuum tube stereo ribbon mic that builds upon Royer's world-class ribbon design.


The SF-24V vacuum tube stereo ribbon microphone is the pinnacle of Royer's SF-series stereo microphones. The sound pickup is lush, smooth and natural, with outstanding stereo imaging and superb transient response. The tube electronics provide increased midrange reach, unmatched clarity and detail, and an airiness previously unheard of in ribbon mics. Utilizing the same proprietary tube electronics as in Royer's TEC Award winning R-122V ribbon microphones, the SF-24V delivers the ultimate in stereo ribbon miking for the true connoisseur of recorded sound.


The SF-24V’s independent tube circuits provide an output level of -38 dB, suitable for use with any professional preamplifier. With self-noise of lower than 18 dB, the SF-24V’s ultra-quiet operation is suitable for the most demanding classical and acoustic recording applications.


Like an SF-12, the SF-24V is actually two matched ribbon microphones, placed one above the other in a coincident pair, each aimed 45 degrees from center in the classic Blumlein configuration. The magnet/pole piece structure of each ribbon transducer delivers a wide, uniform frequency response with no substantial peaks or dips, and the 1.8-micron ribbons produce superb transient response. Frequency response is excellent regardless of the angle of sound striking the ribbons and off-axis coloration is negligible.

Royer SF-24V Electronics

The SF-24V’s twin head amplifiers consist of low-noise, triode-connected military grade 5840 vacuum tubes. Designed for a wide range of applications, the SF-24V delivers -38 dB output and the drive capabilities only vacuum tube head amplifiers can provide. The circuits are devoid of typical vacuum tube coloration.

The SF-24V’s triode-configured cathode follower circuitry enables the microphone to drive long cable runs without sonic degradation or high-frequency loss. This capability is further enhanced by the SF-24V's dedicated power supply, which provides ample current to the vacuum tube electronics. Induced noise is virtually eliminated by the microphone's fully balanced outputs, which are electrically isolated with special purpose Jensen output transformers.

The SF-24V has far more level than non-powered ribbon microphones and its impedance matching circuitry places a perfect load on the ribbon element at all times. This allows the use of a wide variety of mic preamps without concern for gain and impedance matches, two critical issues with ribbon microphones. In addition, the microphone’s electronics shield the ribbon elements from any possibility of damage by phantom power, electrical glitches or miswired cables.

It is important to note that the SF-24V’s higher sensitivity creates no additional self-noise. All of the SF-24V’s increased level comes from its large, specially wound toroidal transformers, so there is no additional noise associated with the microphone's higher output. The tube system operates at less than unity, adding no noise of its own.

Royer Labs R-10 Studio/Live Ribbon Microphone (Royer Labs R-10 Studio/Live Ribbon Microphone)

Royer R-10 Ribbon Microphone

Royer’s most affordable ribbon mic yet, derived from the well-proven R-101 and sharing all of that model’s core technology but in a smaller, simpler package.

The Royer R-10 is a passive mono ribbon microphone created for Studio and Live use featuring the look, sound and high-SPL-handling performance (160 dB SPL @ 1K) Royer is known for, at the most afforble price yet! The R-10 is warm, full-bodied and extremely natural sounding - a second-to-none ribbon microphone in its price range.

The R-10 is an excellent Royer for studio and live electric guitars, capturing all the low end, midrange warmth and punch the industry has come to expect from a Royer. It’s also an excellent choice for brass instruments, percussion, various drum positions and many stringed instruments – use anywhere a ribbon is called for. The R-10 also takes EQ beautifully when more highs are needed.

The R-10’s 2.5-micron aluminum ribbon element is formed with Royer's patented direct-corrugation process and is protected by a 3-layer windscreen system and internally shock-mounted ribbon transducer. The ribbon transducer is wired for humbucking to reject electromagnetically induced noise.

The R-10’s built-in windscreen provides superior protection from air blasts and plosives. It also reduces proximity effect (bass buildup from close miking) so guitar cabinets and acoustic instruments can be close-miked with less bass buildup. The R-10’s internally shockmounted ribbon transducer isolates the ribbon element from shocks and vibrations, increasing the ribbon element’s durability.

The R-10 utilizes a David Royer custom designed transformer for high overload threshold, minimizing saturation at even extremely high sound pressure levels. You’ll never overload an R-10! The mic’s open grill design minimizes standing waves and associated comb-filtering effects and its smooth frequency response, phase linearity and lack of self-distortion make it ideal for all digital recording and live sound formats.

The R-10 is hand-built in Royer's Burbank California factory and comes with a 5-year warranty and first re-ribbon free.

Royer R-10 Features:

  • Hand-built in Burbank California
  • Excellent studio & live mic
  • High SPL handling
  • Dave Royer custom designedtransformer
  • 2.5-micron R-series ribbon element
  • 3-layer windscreen system
  • Acclaimed Royer ribbon sound

Patented Offset Ribbon Technology

The R-10 incorporates Royer's patented offset-ribbon technology and a low mass, 2.5-micron aluminum (99.9% pure) ribbon element. The ribbon transducer's flux-frame and rare earth Neodymium magnets create a powerful magnetic field which increases sensitivity while reducing stray magnetic radiation.

The R-10's offset-ribbon transducer (Patent # 6,434,252) positions the ribbon element towards the front (logo) side of the microphone body. This proprietary arrangement gives the ribbon element more room to move within the prime magnetic field and maintain full frequency response during high SPL recordings. It's an integral part of the magic in all Royer R-series microphones.

The offset-ribbon transducer also gives you the option of a brighter response when recording lower SPL sound sources on the back side (3 feet and closer; phase reversed in this position). The back side of the mic is often preferred on vocals, acoustic guitars and other stringed instruments.
