  • 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.

    Hi everyone, I'm finally trying to get back in the swing with recording, and would like to try another mic. Right now I only use an SM57 (not very often, truthfully) but mostly my Rode NT2-A, which I am liking the sound on everything I do, acoustic guitar, electric, and vocals. I've heard even a cheap chinese ribbon mic will sound great on electric guitar, but I think for the education, fun, and made in USA parts, I wouldn't mind doing the $200 for their base level kit.

    I'm looking at the first one for 2 bills on there. I couldn't really find any reviews though.. and it sounds pretty sweet from the clips on their website but, I mean come on, of course it does. Thanks for any insight!
