The R-101 Ribbon Microphone from Royer Labs is a professional solution to suit project, home, and professional recording studios alike. In the tradition of the Royer R-121, the R-101 features a 2.5-micron ribbon element, and Royer's patented offset placement for maximum sensitivity within the prime magnetic field.
The rare earth neodymium magnet maximizes the microphone's sensitivity, and results in high SPL handling, and analog warmth. The R-101 features a figure-8 polar pattern for flexible microphone positioning, and its high sensitivity is ideal for capturing brass instruments, amplifier cabinets, guitars, and other transient-rich sources without noise and distortion. The R-101 includes a shockmount and rugged carrying / storage case.
