Royer R-121 Live Ribbon Microphone (Dull Satin Nickel)

The Royer R-121 Live (Dull Satin Nickel) is a Ribbon Microphone designed for live events and recording. With increased durability the R-121 Live gives FOH engineers greater confidence in the Ribbon standing up to the rigors of the road.

The R-121 Live is comparable to a Dynamic mic whilst delivering the warm, realistic tone that only a Ribbon mic can. The R-121 Live virtually eliminates the shrill high-end often associated with live Guitars and Brass. Push up the faders and there's the instrument in all its fullness and natural glory, minus the peaky highs.

The Ribbon element thickness is increased from 2.5 microns to 4 microns, giving the Microphone greater durability and a slightly reduced high end response. Highs are often rolled off in live performances, but due to the R-121 Live's exceptionally smooth high frequency response, it needs far less EQ than is usually required with Condenser and Dynamic microphones.

R-121 Live's proprietary offset Ribbon transducer is the first of its kind, positioning the Ribbon element closer to the front (logo) side of the microphone. This arrangement gives the Ribbon more room to move within the prime magnetic field while maintaining full frequency response on high SPL applications. It's an integral piece of the magic of all Royer R-series microphones.
