Royer Labs R-101 overview

  • 1Description

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.

    Royer Labs R-101 reviews

    R-101 Ribbon Microphone is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply outstanding! Incredible depth of field, accurate reproduction, solid bass response and high SPL handling makes this mic a must-have for any mic any price but especially a THIS price! I've just recently used it to record jazz/fusion guitars in a quartet setting with really outstanding results; the track just sits in the mix effortlessly, no eq and hardly any compression needed. Amazing mic at an even more amazing price! Highly recommended!
