Hey guys, just picked up a Royer 121 mostly for elec gtrs and so far I'm pretty unimpressed. Anyone else have this experience? Now, I have only used it for a very short time so I havn't got to experiment much. (that's my disclaimer) I had a band in today doing elec gtr and percussion overdubs and the Royer got the boot on all the percusion and some elec parts. I set up a sm57 and the Royer (forward facing) in the same placement (60's BF fender deluxe, moded TS9, 3" off grill, b/t middle and edge of speaker) both going thru my MP2NV.....the results...57 kinda sizzle-y highs the 121 less highs (on the verge of dull) and more pronounced mids. Turn the 121 around backwards same set up and I nor the members of the band could tell a difference b/t the two. What gives? Bad mic, bad placement, bad hair, bad ears? Can anyone say that the 121 stomps the poo out of a 57 or should they sound quiet similar on elec amp?? Any other great mics or micing approaches to look at.........MD 421 etc... Rock On!
