  • Royer ribbon microphones - Why?

    Simply put, when you put a quality ribbon mic on an instrument, voice, or other sound source, what you hear on playback is closer to real sound in nature than with any other kind of microphone.

    I just did a search w/ the terms "beyer" and "ribbon", looking to get a little more info on the 160/130 pair and its typical pricing.

    If you're interested in drum OH selections, ribbon mic selections, or choices regarding sax, flute, violin/fiddle, a ribbon mic shootout, and so much more...

    Do yourselves a favor and search w/ these terms.
    I've spent a good half-hour visiting new (to me) and revisiting old threads that have been really enlightening.

    Proof positive that if you know how to look (or just get lucky), RO is the best online resource available.

    FWIW, the 160/130 pair is moving up my list of buys, quickly, as a result

    Yup yup, great choice. My favorite MS pair, especially for orchestral. But then it's great on jazz of all sorts. In many ways I love my 160/130's more than I like my 77 DX's. Which I've had for more than a quarter-century. It's all just luscious. Nothing like ribbon microphones when you want to hear what something really sounds like. They're not muddy. It's just that everything else is too crispy these days. I don't like my audio like my fried chicken, extra crispy. I like my audio like I like my filet mignon, rare, fat, juicy with a piece of bacon wrapped around it. That's a good recording. That's a ribbon microphone. Do you like your ribbons long or short? I really don't think size matters?

    I like German and American cooking
