A USA ribbon mic built by one of the most trusted names in microphones, the R-10 is ready to please!

The R-10 is a passive mono ribbon microphone created for Studio and Live use. The look, sound and high-SPL-handling performance (160 dB SPL @ 1K) are all-Royer!

The R-10 is hand-built in our Burbank California factory and comes with a 5-year warranty and first re-ribbon free. Its compact size and mounting system allows for flexible microphone placement.

The R-10 has a 2.5-micron ribbon element (the same as in our R-121) and a David Royer custom designed transformer for high overload threshold. Its ribbon transducer is wired for humbucking to reject electromagnetically induced noise. The R-10 incorporates the proven 3-layer protective windscreen system and internally shock-mounted ribbon transducer first developed for our R-101
ribbon mic.

The R-10 is warm, full-bodied and extremely natural sounding, a second-to-none ribbon microphone in its price range. The R-10 is an excellent Royer for studio and live electric guitars, capturing all the low end, midrange warmth and punch the industry has come to expect from a Royer. It’s also an excellent choice for brass instruments, percussion, various drum positions and many stringed instruments – use anywhere a ribbon is called for. The R-10 also takes EQ beautifully when more highs are needed.
