Royer R-10 Ribbon Microphone

The Royer R-10 Ribbon Microphone is designed for studio and live performance applications, with it's balanced soundfield and flat response. Thanks to it's compact size and low profile mount, the R-10 is provides for flexible placement in tight spots.

The Royer R-10 Ribbon Microphone is a perfect choice for electric guitars, brass instruments and drums, and its figure-8 pattern conveys superb ambience and depth when used for room miking applications. The R-10’s smooth frequency response, phase linearity and lack of self-distortion make it ideal for digital recording.

The Royer R-10 Ribbon Microphone incorporates Royer’s patented offset-ribbon technology and low mass, 2.5-micron (99.9% pure) aluminum ribbon element. A custom designed impedance-matching transformer minimizes saturation and the open grill configuration minimizes standing waves and associated comb-filtering effects. The transducer’s flux-frame design and rare earth Neodymium magnets create a powerful magnetic field which increases sensitivity while reducing stray magnetic radiation.

The Royer R-10 Ribbon Microphone’s patented offset-ribbon design positions the ribbon element towards the front of the transducer, which allows for the higher SPL handling of the front (logo) side and the option of a brighter response when recording lower SPL sound sources on the back side (3 feet or closer; phase reversed position).
