Released in 1998, the award-winning R-121 is Royer's flagship microphone; the world's first radically reengineered ribbon microphone and the model that reintroduced ribbon mics to engineers around the world. Royer did away with the large, heavy, fragile "classic" approach to ribbon microphones and went in a completely new direction. The R-121 gives all of the warmth and natural sound that experienced engineers have long turned to ribbon mics for, but in a compact, light-weight, high output and tough-as-nails package that was unheard of in a ribbon mic before the R-121. In its 10+ years in the market, thousands of R-121's have been sold around the world and it's well established as a standard for tracking electric guitar and brass.
Like many of the best classic ribbon mics, the R-121 has a figure-8 pattern, output level comparable to a dynamic mic, and a warm, realistic tone and flat frequency response. But that's where the similarities end. By using advanced materials and a blend of cutting edge and old-school, hand-build construction techniques, the R-121 is an extremely versatile and user-friendly ribbon mic that can stand up to the most demanding tasks. Cranked up electric guitars, close up brass, drums - you name it, the R-121 will help you record it with realism you have to hear to believe.
Royer builds the R-121 solid enough to give it a lifetime warranty and expects you to own it for as long as you record, and they'll stand behind it the whole way.
Using a Patented Offset Ribbon Technology, the R-121's proprietary offset ribbon transducer (Patent # 6,434,252) is the first of its kind, positioning the ribbon element closer to the front (logo) side of the microphone. This arrangement gives the ribbon more room to move within the prime magnetic field while maintaining full frequency response during high SPL recordings. It's an integral piece of the magic of all Royer R-series microphones.
Typical applications of the R-121 ribbon microphone include:
Included in this promotional package is the all new Sling-Shock™ (Patent No. 8,571,250) - a revolutionary departure from traditional shock mount designs. They've done away with the rubberized parts and elastic cords, producing a durable shock mount that gives superior isolation from vibrations. In the Royer tradition, the Sling-Shock is hand-built in their Burbank, CA facility using only the finest materials.
Royer's proprietary system of non-resonant nylon cable and damped steel springs acts to isolate the microphone from vibrations induced from the microphone stand. These vibrations can appear as rumble and/or low-grade noises which create disturbances across the bandwidth, from low end thumps to harmonic disturbances at different frequencies. The Sling-Shock's superior vibration-reduction capabilities and lack of self-resonance allow engineers to capture performances free of vibration-related interference across the bandwidth.
The Sling-Shock RSM-SS1 is sized to fit Royer's 1-inch diameter R-121, R-122, R-122V, SF-1 and SF-12 ribbon microphones. Any cylindrical microphone measuring approximately one inch in diameter (+/- 1/8 inch) will work with the model RSM-SS1. A European stand-adapter is included where applicable, allowing the Sling-Shock to be fitted to European specification microphone stands.
