ROYER LABS ANNOUNCES 15TH ANNIVERSARY R-121 LIMITED EDITION RIBBON MICROPHONE

 

Burbank, CA… Royer Labs, a leading manufacturer of high quality ribbon microphones, is pleased to announce the availability of the 15th Anniversary R-121 Limited Edition Ribbon Microphone. Drawing upon the strengths that have catapulted the company’s original R-121 Studio Ribbon Microphone into one of the most sought after ribbon microphones available, the 15th Anniversary R-121 Limited Edition Ribbon Microphone celebrates Royer Labs’ fifteen years as a leading manufacturer of ribbon microphones.

Royer Labs was founded in May 1998 and the R-121 Studio Ribbon Microphone was the company’s first product. Of particular note, the first one hundred or so R-121 microphones shipped with a black version of the Royer Labs logo before changing to the green logo that has been a fixture on all R-121’s since that time. The 15th Anniversary R-121 Limited Edition Ribbon Microphone celebrates its unique status in the company’s history by donning the original black logo.

In addition to carrying the original Royer black logo, the 15th Anniversary R-121 Limited Edition Ribbon Microphone also ships with a special 15th Anniversary Certificate of Authenticity personally signed by David Royer, the company’s chief engineer after whom the company is named.

John Jennings, Royer Labs’ Vice President of Sales and Marketing, commented on the 15th Anniversary R-121 Limited Edition Ribbon Microphone. “The R-121 is an exceptional microphone, but I have to admit to being sentimentally attached to the first few R-121’s with their black logos,” states Jennings. “When David showed <Royer President> Rick Perrotta and me the original R-121 design, we knew we had a game changer on our hands. That mic laid Royer’s foundation, and over the past fifteen years R-121’s have been used on countless world renowned recordings; everything from heavy rock to the finest classical and scoring work. It’s become a fixture with many pro audio engineers and producers, and it was a huge factor in our receiving the 2013 Technical Grammy® Award. The 15th Anniversary R-121 Limited Edition Ribbon Microphone has a rich and unique heritage that, in many ways, has defined who we are as a company.”

The Royer Labs 15th Anniversary R-121 Limited Edition Ribbon Microphone has a production run of just 250 units. The microphone carries the same MSRP price of $ 1,395.00 as the standard R-121. The 15th Anniversary R-121 Limited Edition Ribbon Microphone is available now.
