Royer R-122 Microphones on Cello featuring Winona Zelenka

  • 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.

    Thanks Jeff, isn't that exactly what you and I love eh. I had a feeling you would like this as much as me. Thanks as well.
    I owned a pair of 122's loved them. I got a SF24 instead, but want r122 back now. I want them all!
    I love the sound and those ribbons are sure sweet. What a cool array of them eh.

    What a great sounding recording! I always grab a ribbon for recording the cello... often my Royer 121 pair or my pair of Samar MF-65 mics. Both work great. I only wish I had a room like that to record them in! My room is smallish so reverb has to be added after the fact.
    I'd love to experiment with a Decca Tree arrangement like that!
    Nice one Chris, thanks for posting.
