Royer Labs has always strived to bring the distinct natural sound qualities of ribbon microphones to the world. With constant innovation and reinvention, Royer builds better microphones for better music. By holding themselves to the highest possible standards of craftsmanship, Royer's microphones are full of warmth and character that helps them find their place in any working environment.
Royer Labs was formed in 1998 by David Royer, a truly elite designer whose lifelong love of music has given him a unique perspective when it comes to microphones. By the late 1990's, ribbon microphones had largely been forgotten, but Royer changed all that by building mics that perfectly complemented new, digital recording, thanks in part to their warm, analog feel and smooth sound. Today Royer mics are considered a must have in studios all around the world, bringing music and sound to life like never before.
If you're not sure which Royer mic is right for you, you may as well start off by looking at our best sellers, such as the R-101 Ribbon Mic. This handcrafted passive ribbon mic features a patented offset-ribbon transducer and a 2.5-micron ribbon element that combine to deliver top quality sound and performance. Equally suited for studio work and live applications, this mic also comes with a lifetime warranty so you know it's going to last as long as you need it to.
If you're looking for an even more sonically pleasing experience then you'll want to take a look at the R-121 Ribbon Microphone. This American classic has often been referred to as the "go-to" studio microphone. Brilliantly capturing the nuances of electric guitar amps as well as the sounds of horns, this mic is sure to become the absolute standard of your studio set up.
Whichever Royer Labs mic you choose, you can rest assured that it's going to sound stunning. That's because Royer ensures that all of their mics are built so impeccably that you are simply going to have to hear to it to believe. Once you find the Royer that's right for you, you'll notice subtleties in your work that will change the way you think about recording forever.
