Versatile Microphones

You'll find these to be ideal for a range of applications in the studio. They work well on cranked up electric guitars, close up brass, drums, woodwinds, percussion, piano and choirs. They're compact and lightweight, and can be positioned easily towards your sound source.

The R-121 gives you all the warm and natural sound of a ribbon mic, packed into a lightweight, compact, high output and tough package, something that's not normally seen with ribbon microphones. Royer have scrapped the large, heavy and fragile approach of ribbon mics and turned it into the opposite.

Built to Handle High SPL Instruments

What's also great is that they're not affected by heat or humidity. They are the perfect mic for any live performance setup both indoors and outdoors.

They can also handle high SPL instruments. You'll find the R-121 can handle high SPL levels from guitars like instruments or brass, without it getting damaged or producing distortion. They offer a max SPL rating of 135dB at 20Hz, and can handle it all day, every day.

Captures Sound the Way its Heard

The R-121 accurately captures the sound you hear with your ears. They deliver a warm, realistic tone, with a smooth natural response when mic'd up with electric guitar amps, brass, horns, and percussion. They're flat and well-balanced with no boomy low-end, realistic mids, and smooth and natural highs.

With extremely low noise output too, your instruments will always sound ultra-clear. No matter the distance of your sound source, the R-121 will always give you a consistent frequency response.

Effectively Isolates Instruments

You'll be able to easily isolate instruments. The R-121 mics have a figure-8 polar pattern which effectively rejects sound from the left and right sides, the top, and bottom. These are effective dead zones that can be used to isolate instruments by positioning the mics in a certain way. Place the mic's null position towards these sounds and the bleed will be virtually eliminated.

Patented Offset Ribbon Technology

The first of its kind. The R-121 has an offset ribbon transducer that positions the ribbon elements to the front side of the mic. This arrangement helps to maintain a full frequency response on high SPL applications, giving the ribbon more room to move within the prime magnetic field.
