66€...Amazing!
ARSLuke, 16.12.2019
Hi!

I am a FOH engineer, bought this mic because I wanted a ribbon mic for a guitar amp, but didn`t want to spend fortune. It turned out, I didnt`t have to. This mic is amazing. I understand that a "real" Royer would be much better, but for 66€ that I spent, it does a great job.
I use the mic on a guitar amp, it dilivers a smooth warm sound I was looking for. Used on a fender 5e3 tweed and Orange tiny terror, the crisp mids we wanted to cut out became soft and warm, lots of low end and smooth highs.

Definitely buying another one, to have a set for two guitar amps.

I also tried it on bass amp, great natural overdrive, but you have to be carefull, not to put it to close to the speaker...about 10cm from the grillcloth was ok.

Again, in my oppinion, great mic, especially for the price.

Bang for the buck
Ozeb, 07.04.2020
I bought this mic primarely for guitar cabs. It holds high volume well and sounds nice and warm, as ribbon mic should. I recorded old marshall superleads, and you know how ungodly lound those thigs are, but it held well. I used it for overhead mix, for drum room mix, even on kick drum. It worked awsome on everything. It's a bit on a bass side, so it's great for low insturments. I recorded bass amp with it also. I didn't really like it on vocals though.
It comes in a nice box and velvet kinda bag. It's built to last, nice metal housing, and good enought connectors. Not the best, but good. Especially for the price. The whole mic is unbeateble for the money, really. It's useful on wide variety of instruments, it responds to eq well and nicely sits in a mix. I love it on guitar cabs paired with a nice 57. I use it for contrast to wide diafragm condensor, one guitar with ribbon, one with condensor.
It needs a good preamp though. It uses quite a lot of gain, it has weak signal, as most of ribbons do.
But as said, for the price, can't get any better.

Not great, not bad
TomAudio, 28.02.2020
I personally would invest a bit more and get the RB-500. The RB-100 sounds a bit muffled, smells pretty bad out of the box, and isn't an overall well usable microphone. The best thing I can say about it is that it works, it picks up sound, and it looks cool because its based on the Royer R-121, but soundwise its not that special.

a bit on the dark sound, even for ribbons mics. but i did a good recording of a Gretch Jim Dandy with this and it sounded not bad at all. used on the right sources it can be good. I still have to try it out on drums and electric guitars. But for this kind of money it is a fun lithle thing to have in your arsenal. Costs less than a few rounds with beer, and it will probably make you have more fun in the long run.
It needs a good preamp though, since it is very low output. if you dont have a in line gain booster or have a good preamp already that can handle very low output mics, you should probably look elsewhere for a ribbon mic. (the T.bone lollipop ribbons, are easier do use than this one in that regard).
