Burbank, CA�On Thursday, October 5th, Royer Labs, the world�s leading manufacturer of high quality ribbon microphones, hosted a release party for the company�s latest microphone: the Royer Labs R-10 Ribbon Microphone. Held at Center Staging, LA's premier rehearsal and backline facility, the event attracted many studio and live sound professionals and gave those in attendance an opportunity to see and hear the new R-10 up close.

John Jennings, Royer�s VP of Sales and Marketing, served as master of ceremonies for the event, which included live music and a demonstration session. Of particular note, Royer�s production personnel are also craft beer enthusiasts and they arranged for a selection of craft beers from some of the area�s best microbreweries.

After an inspiring performance by The Bobby Joyner Band (including Mojave Audio�s Dusty Wakeman on bass), the presentation segment of the evening began. Royer�s John Jennings introduced the microphone�presenting it as the company�s entry-level product offering while discussing the R-10�s many uses. Then Producer/Engineer Joe Barresi took the stage to give his thoughts on the R-10 and its applications in the recording studio. He was quite enthusiastic about the new mic�particularly on electric guitars�and his presentation was exceptionally well-received.

The demonstration itself included using the R-10 to capture electric guitar; focusing on the microphone�s tonal attributes and its ability to handle high SPL sources. FOH engineer Jimbo Neal, who has worked with the Brian Setzer Orchestra and is currently the General Manager at Center Staging, also spoke to the crowd about the R-10 and its wide-ranging potential. Following the presentation, The Eric Garcia Band performed and finished out the night.

Reflecting on the evening, John Jennings offered the following thoughts, �All of us at Royer Labs are proud of the new R-10 and we think it could be a major hit in studios and on live stages. When it comes to �affordable� microphones, there�s a sweet spot in the $300 to $600-dollar range, and we worked hard to deliver a good ribbon mic at that price point. The R-10 will enable many more people in music production to take advantage of the unique capabilities of ribbon microphones. This will be many people�s first ribbon mic, and we want it to be an excellent experience that makes them come back for more. Everyone at Royer worked hard to make the R-10 a reality. It was truly a team effort. So throwing this party and having it well attended by some of the industry�s greats was major icing on the cake. We really had a great night!�
