Since 1998, Royer has been providing industry professionals and home studio enthusiasts alike with ribbon microphones that boast a high level of workmanship and sound quality, and are perfectly compatible with the modern recording studio setup. After all, recording digitally shouldn't have to mean sacrificing warmth and realism, and thanks to Royer, you don't.
So which ribbon microphone is right for you? That will depend on your own specific needs and preferences. With that in mind, the R-101 Ribbon Mic is a best seller, and suitable for both live and studio applications.

Solidly-built and very affordable, the R-101's smooth frequency response will satisfy even the most demanding audiophile.
While you're at it, check out the R-121. An anniversary reissue of an American classic, the R-121 has proven to be extremely effective when it comes to capturing the nuances of electric guitar amps and cabinets. Additionally, The R-121 is offered here with your choice of either the RSM-1 or RSM-SS1 customer shock mounts, or you can simply purchase it with the standard clip. Whatever you choose, you'll agree that the R-121 is more than deserving of its legendary status.
Along with the mics themselves, Royer also offers a wide range of ribbon mic accessories, including the best-selling PS-101 Metal Pop Filter.
