Product Description

R-10 Studio/Live Ribbon Microphone

The Royer R-10 is a passive mono ribbon microphone designed for use in the studio and on live stages. Hand-built in our Burbank California factory, the R-10’s sound and performance are all-Royer and it handles SPLs of up to 160 dB @ 1 kHz. The R-10’s compact size and mounting system allows for flexible, unobtrusive positioning. 

The Sound 

Royer ribbon mics are legendary on electric guitar and the R-10 shows some of its best stuff on studio and live electrics, capturing all the low end, midrange warmth and punch guitarists and engineers have come to expect from a Royer. If you want more bite in the highs but don’t want to multi-mic (particularly on live stages where blending microphones can create phase-related problems), the R-10 takes EQ beautifully and we suggest experimenting with your favorite EQ unit or plugin.  

The R-10 is excellent on brass and can handle close-miked trumpets, trombones and other brass instruments. Brass records naturally on an R-10, as bright as the musician plays but without the added sizzle or harshness commonly experienced when condenser mics are used on brass instruments.

(The R-10 is also available in matched pairs.)
