    Royer rebate pretty sweet

    In case you haven't heard Royer is having a factory rebate through September 30th. Pretty nice deal if you are in the market for a ribbon mic. $75 off an R-101, $100 off an 121, $125 off 122 and $200 of an R122v. I think it's per mic if you by a matched pair.

    Royer SF-12 on overheads

    So my Royer SF-12 came today. I'm in love. Tried it on drum overhead. Just the damned stereo mic 2 feet over the center of the kit in Blumlein. I'm blown away. A beautiful image of the whole kit. Best picture of the cymbals I've heard. Lovely natural sound of the toms. For some genres I...

    Shock Mounts for Royers

    I'm probably going to get a Royer SF-12 in the near future. Do you Royer owners recommend the RSM-1 shock mount? A bit pricy, but if it's worth it...Any other recomendations?

    Using Royer ribbon mics for everything but vocal

    I'm personally following Fab Dupont's recording and mixing tricks, specifically hybrid recording and how he does it. I just finished watching this video on how he used Royer mics to record some of Will Knox songs. It sounds really good and I hope you enjoy this. I love the sound of this...

    Royer 121 on guitars

    The API 512c gave me a knew appreciation for the sm57. I've been pretty well been using this combination for the last couple years exclusively. As I recording some guitar solo's with an es 335->mesa single rec I was finding the tone just to fizzy. Eq would basically get me where I need to go...
