Studio Ribbon Microphones
Following in the footsteps of our R-121 ribbon microphone, the new Royer R-101 utilizes our patented offset ribbon transducer, incorporates an advanced, protective wind screen system, and ships with a shock mount and carrying case. It delivers all of the warmth and natural sound you've come to expect from a Royer, at a price that makes it ideal for home recording and project studios.
The R-121 ribbon microphone is our flagship microphone. It's everything a ribbon should
be -warm, smooth, natural sounding. It's also tough as nails, lightweight,
can handle high SPL's and live stage use, and comes with a lifetime warranty.
Welcome to the new world of ribbon microphones!
The R-122 ribbon microphone is the world's first active ribbon™ microphone. Designed to work with phantom power, it delivers all of the warm, natural tone of our R-121, but with 14 dB more output and impedance matching circuitry that makes it compatible with almost any mic preamplifier.
The R-122V ribbon microphone is the world's first vacuum tube ribbon microphone. Originally
developed in 2001 as a benchmark for testing R-122 designs against, the unique
R-122V has evolved into a world class ribbon microphone with amazing depth
and reach in the midrange frequencies and a lush-ness you'll need to hear for
yourself to believe.
The SF-2 ribbon microphone is a phantom powered version of our original SF-1 ribbon microphone. Designed primarily for classical applications and acoustic instruments, the SF-2 combines high-quality audio performance with our exclusive active electronics for ribbon microphones. The SF-2's output of -38 dB puts its sensitivity on par with that of phantom powered condenser microphones, allowing it to be used with a wide variety of mic pre's regardless of gain characteristics. The unique electronics and custom designed FET's used in the SF-2 deliver ultra-quiet operation, with self-noise of lower than 18 dB.
The SF-12 ribbon microphone is an extremely natural sounding stereo ribbon microphone. With its flat frequency response and outstanding stereo separation and imaging, the SF-12 delivers you-are-there recordings like you've never heard before.
The SF-24 ribbon microphone has all of the outstanding stereophonic capability and sonic performance
of our award winning SF-12 stereo ribbon microphone, with the addition of condenser-level
output and impedance matching circuitry. Designed to work with phantom power,
the SF-24 makes preamplifier mismatches and gain-related noise a thing of the
The SF-24V ribbon microphone is the pinnacle of our stereo ribbon microphone designs. With the inclusion of vacuum tube circuitry derived from our TEC Award winning R-122V, the SF-24V provides unmatched clarity, detail, midrange reach, and an airiness previously unknown to ribbon microphones. For orchestra, acoustic instruments and all critical stereo applications, the SF-24V is perfection.
