Surprising and excellent

Antoine5150, 27.07.2011
Bought recently, it is my first micro ribbon. I was looking for a microphone that would restore the sound of a guitar amp as best as possible without this aggressive side of the SM57 or "over-detailed" a good static.
It is incredible, the R121 displays an unusual personality: the sound is ample precise, velvety and devoid of any aggressiveness. The difficulty lies in its optimal placement, it takes a little time to find it. In the studio, I couple it to a TLM103 which will bring a little more attack, but the mix finally includes about 70% R121 and 30% TLM103.
Tested on a piano too, the Royer is perfect: its direction in 8 provides a wide sound and again very soft without being "deaf". Perfect to overcome the excessive shine of some pianos like the Yamaha C3 for example.
I have not had the opportunity to test it again on brass or strings. It seems that he does wonders there too.
An excellent microphone with very strong personality but which is a real "more" in a studio park.
The only negative: no worthy suspension provided with (just a tiny clip). Shame about the price ...

The best guitars I've ever recorded

Pacochito, 12.12.2012
I tried a lot of microphones to record guitars but, until the Royer R-121 arrived, I did not get what I was looking for.

The construction of the micro is fantastic and its presentation impeccable. It comes in a really nice and sturdy wooden box and with a cloth cover that protects it from blows when you've taken it out of the box.

It supports enough pressure to use it in front of a guitar amplifier and provides a smoothness in the treble and a warmth that I have not achieved with other microphones. In addition, it makes a fantastic pair with other dynamic micros, like the SM57.

The Royer R-121 is the best micro that I have tried when I want to capture all the detail that the amplifier provides.

I have used it to record other sources like voices or acoustic guitars and behaves very well because the sound is different from each of their faces. Using the brighter face, it does a very good job with some voices or acoustic guitars.
