Royer Labs R-10 Studio Ribbon Microphone

Royer Labs

Regular price $799.00

Including GST. Free shipping in NZ.

Passive Ribbon Microphone.

Designed for use in the studio and on live stages. Hand-built in their 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.

2.5-micron aluminum ribbon element is formed with their our patented direct-corrugation process and is protected by a 3-layer windscreen system and internally shock-mounted ribbon transducer.

The R-10’s built-in windscreen provides superior protection from air blasts and plosives. It also reduces proximity effect (bass buildup from close miking) so guitar cabinets and acoustic instruments can be close-miked with less bass buildup. The R-10’s internally shockmounted ribbon transducer isolates the ribbon element from shocks and vibrations, increasing the ribbon element’s durability.

"Royer’s most affordable ribbon mic yet, derived from the well-proven R-101 and sharing all of that model’s core technology but in a smaller, simpler package. It is extremely robust, with a massive headroom that makes it ideal for use on loud sources like guitar amps, brass and drums, as well as vocals and other sources."

Gear advice

Are you looking for the right gear for your recording set-up and budget?

Choosing the correct item for your home recording set-up is easy for some and confusing for most. Even if you have been working with audio for years, things are constantly changing. The marketing guff and searching the net usually sends you down a rabbit hole of time-wasting.
The core of Indigo Oak Studio is to help people set up and record by taking the mystery and costs out of recording. Right now, that cost you will save is time, patience and disappointment.
