Royer R-101 Ribbon Mic …

Royer R-101 Ribbon Mic  ...Royer – Royer R-101 Ribbon Mic Black
The R-101 is a mono, passive ribbon microphone utilizing a patented offset-ribbon transducer and a 2.5-micron ribbon element. The R-101 is hand-built in Royer’s Burbank, CA facility and delivered at a price point suitable for home studio use and live applications. The R-101 is a new breed of modern ribbon microphone, designed for studio work and demanding live applications (particularly live electric guitar and brass). It incorporates many features pioneered by Royer Labs, including an advanced multi-layered wind screen for superior protection from air blasts and plosives, a patented offset-ribbon transducer, and an internally shock mounted ribbon transducer system which provides greater isolation from shocks and vibrations, and reduced proximity effect for closer miking with less bass buildup. Throw it on a guitar cabinet, hit record, play it back, smile. The ribbon element’s smooth frequency response and phase linearity impart a warm, analog feel to digital recordings, where the depth and realism on playback feels more like tape rolling than digits being computed. A perfect choice for electric guitars, brass instruments and drums, the R-101’s figure-8 pattern also conveys superb ambience and depth when used for room miking applications. Patented Offset Ribbon Technology The R-101 incorporates Royer’s patented offset-ribbon technology and a low mass, 2.5-micron aluminum (99.9% pure) ribbon element. The ribbon transducer’s flux-frame and rare earth Neodymium magnets create a powerful magnetic field which increases sensitivity while reducing stray magnetic radiation. The R-101’s offset-ribbon transducer (Patent # 6,434,252) positions the ribbon element towards the front (logo) side of the microphone body. This proprietary arrangement gives the ribbon element more room to move within the prime magnetic field and maintain full frequency response during high SPL recordings.

Royer microphones are built to be tough and can handle the challenges of life on the road, but they are studio mics that require some TLC to keep from damaging the ribbon elements. With the Royer SF-24 ribbon microphone from the Live Series, you get twice the durability in the ribbon element, allowing you to place it anywhere on stage you’d like with complete confidence. Tame high-end harshness and bring Royer’s legendary smoothness, warmth and power to your live performances.HowAfter extensive testing, Royer found new ribbon thickness for the SF-24 Live microphone that allowed them to significantly increase durability with minimal reduction in gain and transients response. The sonic difference is negligible, and the increased durability lets anyone use Royer ribbons in a live environment.A Figure-8 Microphone on Stage? Surprisingly, figure-8 ribbon microphones are an excellent solution for bleed. Bleed can be a real problem with many onstage mics-not just the amount of bleed but the quality of the bleed. Here’s how Royer handles the problem.RejectionRoyer ribbon mics are figure-8, picking up sound from thePhantom powered circuitry provides high output and impedance matchingHigh SPL CapabilitiesNo distortion up to maximum SPL ratingExtremely low residual noiseRibbon element is not affected by heat or humidityAbsence of high frequency phase distortionEqual sensitivity from front or back of elementConsistent frequency response regardless of distanceRear side of mic records slightly brighter when three feet or closer to sound sourceProtective wood caseMicrophone sockOne year ribbon element warranty

Royer Sf-24V Vacuum Tube Stereo Ribbon …

Royer Sf-24V Vacuum Tube Stereo Ribbon  ...Royer – Royer Sf-24V Vacuum Tube Stereo Ribbon Microphone Nickel
The SF-24V vacuum tube stereo ribbon microphone is the pinnacle of Royer’s SF-series stereo microphones. The sound pickup is lush, smooth and natural, with outstanding stereo imaging and superb transient response. The tube electronics provide increased midrange reach, unmatched clarity and detail, and an airiness previously unheard of in ribbon mics. Utilizing the same proprietary tube electronics as in our TEC Award winning R-122V ribbon microphones, the SF-24V delivers the ultimate in stereo ribbon miking for the true connoisseur of recorded sound.The SF-24V’s independent tube circuits provide an output level of -38 dB, suitable for use with any professional preamplifier. With self-noise of lower than 18 dB, the SF-24V’s ultra-quiet operation is suitable for the most demanding classical and acoustic recording applications.Like an SF-12, the SF-24V is actually two matched ribbon microphones, placed one above the other in a coincident pair, each aimed 45 degrees from center in the classic Blumlein configuration. The magnet/pole piece structure of each ribbon transducer delivers a wide, uniform frequency response with no substantial peaks or dips, and the 1.8-micron ribbons produce superb transient response. Frequency response is excellent regardless of the angle of sound striking the ribbons and off-axis coloration is negligible.The ElectronicsThe SF-24V’s twin head amplifiers consist of low-noise, triode-connected military grade 5840 vacuum tubes. Designed for a wide range of applications, the SF-24V delivers -38 dB output and the drive capabilities only vacuum tube head amplifiers can provide. The circuits are devoid of typical vacuum tube coloration.The SF-24V’s triode-configured cathode follower circuitry enables the microphone to drive long cable runs without sonic degradation or high-frequency loss. This capability is further enhanced by the SF-24V’s dedicated power supply, which provides ample current to theVacuum tube circuitry provides high output and impedance matchingTrue stereophonic (Blumlein and M-S) recording from one coincident microphoneHigh SPL capabilitiesNo distortion up to maximum SPL ratingExtremely low residual noiseRibbon elements are not affected by heat or humidityAbsence of high frequency phase distortionEqual sensitivity from front or back of elementsConsistent frequency response regardless of distanceHigh efficiency, matching toroidal transformersVery low magnetic leakage

The Matched R-122V Tube Ribbon Microphone Pair from Royer offers unsurpassed warm, realistic stereo imaging. The R-122V takes the Royer-pioneered concept of active ribbon microphone technology to an unprecedented level by incorporating vacuum tube electronics into the same proven transducer system used in the venerable R-121 and R-122 ribbon microphones. The high operating voltage of the vacuum tube provides a headroom capability far beyond that capable from a standard phantom power supply. In real-world use, this translates into unmatched clarity, detail and airiness.The ElectronicsThe R-122V’s head amplifier consists of a low-noise, triode-connected military grade 5840 vacuum tube.

Finally, Royer gives you a pop filter that doesn’t filter your sound along with the pops. Look through a Royer PS-101 pop filter and you will see the mic clearly. The secret is the special louvered metal that deflects wind downwards while letting sound go directly through. The PS-101 microphone pop filter will last for many years (try that with your nylon), it can be cleaned with soap and water, and looks good too.
