Award Winning Ribbon Microphones

Royer Labs is dedicated to the art of the ribbon microphone.

In 1998 we introduced the R-121, the modern ribbon mic that reintroduced ribbon microphones to engineers worldwide and put ribbons on the map. Shortly after the R-121 we released the SF-12 stereo ribbon mic, followed by the R-122, the world's first phantom powered ribbon microphone. Then came the TEC Award winning R-122V tube ribbon microphone and the TEC Award winning Live Series ribbon mics for live use. In 2013, Royer received the coveted Technical Grammy Award for bringing ribbon microphones into mainstream recording around the world.

The microphone is the original ear in the recording process, the first and most influential part of the recording chain. Royer ribbon mics simply help you capture the most natural sounding recordings possible.

Every Royer is hand-made in the USA by craftsmen who are fanatical about building the best ribbon microphones in the world. Come inside and see what ribbon microphones can do for you.

Royer Notification Regarding COVID-19

Many of us creatives are living under stay-at-home orders or limiting travel and social events while we, and the rest of the world, work our way through the COVID-19 crisis. It’s an important time to remember the togetherness of humanity and do everything we can to support each other and protect the most vulnerable among us by not exposing them to the virus. It’s also a time for digging into our creative selves by writing, recording, mixing and keeping the artistic juices flowing. People need music now more than ever.

California has implemented a ‘Stay at Home’ order for the entire state, which includes our home city of Burbank. In order to comply with the order, stay safe, and also continue to supply microphones to our musical community, a number of us are temporarily working from home offices, producing & shipping microphones and handling most aspects of Royer’s business offsite.

All of us at Royer Labs wish our large community of artists, producers, recording engineers, FOH engineers and all others in the music community the best of luck and health while this crisis works itself out. We are a resilient bunch and we will prevail, so let’s remember to have each other’s backs while this is going on.
