Los Angeles, CA�Royer Labs, a leading manufacturer of high quality ribbon microphones, is pleased to announce the R-10 ribbon microphone. Ideal for both studio and live use, the R-10 is a warm, full-bodied and extremely natural sounding microphone that serves as the entry model to the company�s acclaimed line of ribbon microphones.

Hand-built in the company�s Burbank, California factory, the new R-10 features a 2.5-micron ribbon element (identical to the company�s R-121) and a David Royer custom-designed transformer. Its ribbon transducer is wired for humbucking to reject electromagnetically induced noise. With sound quality and performance attributes that are unquestionably Royer Labs, the R-10 handles SPLs of up to 160 dB @ 1K�making it well equipped for miking electric guitars both in the studio or live with all the low end, midrange warmth and punch that Royer ribbons are so well-known for.

The R-10 incorporates the proven 3-layer protective windscreen system and internally-shockmounted ribbon transducer originally developed for Royer�s R-101 ribbon microphone. The microphone�s windscreen provides superior protection from air blasts and plosives while simultaneously reducing proximity effect (LF buildup caused by close miking)�enabling guitar cabinets and acoustic instruments to be close-miked with less bass buildup. Equally notable, the microphone�s internally mounted ribbon transducer isolates the ribbon element from shocks and vibrations, thus increasing the ribbon element�s durability.

The R-10�s David Royer custom-designed transformer minimizes saturation at extremely high SPLs�making it next to impossible to overload the microphone. The microphone�s open grill design minimizes standing waves and associated comb filtering effects. As a result, its smooth frequency response, phase linearity, and lack of self-distortion make the R-10 a terrific choice for all digital recording and live sound applications.

John Jennings, Royer�s VP of Sales and Marketing, commented on the new R-10 ribbon microphone, �With its high SPL capabilities, the new R-10 is not only a great choice for miking studio and live electric guitars; it�s equally at home capturing trumpets, trombones, and saxophones�without the harshness or sizzle commonly encountered when condenser mics are used on these instruments. It�s also a great choice for drums and piano. Similarly, this mic makes an excellent choice for vocals, violins, nylon-stringed acoustic guitars, and other stringed instruments�delivering all the warmth one expects from a Royer Ribbon. With its highly competitive price point, I�m confident this microphone will prove invaluable to anyone who has ever wanted a Royer ribbon microphone.�

The new Royer Labs R-10 ribbon microphone ships in a foam-lined, protective aluminum case and includes a microphone mount designed to provide flexible mic positioning, and a protective mic sock. U.S. street price is $499. The microphone is available now.
