Royer Labs Celebrates 25th Anniversary with the Introduction of the R-10 “Hot Rod” 25th Anniversary Microphone

Microphone reflects a quarter century of excellence.

Burbank, CA – March 2023… To kick off its 25th anniversary celebration, Royer Labs announces the R-10 “Hot Rod” 25th Anniversary microphone—a passive mono ribbon microphone designed for use both in the studio and on live stages. The limited-edition R-10 “Hot Rod” is fitted with a custom Anniversary Edition transformer, has 5dB hotter output than the standard R-10 with a punchier, more open sound characteristic, and comes with a 25th Anniversary trim package that sets it apart from the standard R-10.

Like the original R-10, the R-10 Hot Rod handles extremely high SPLs (160dB @ 1kHz), has an internally shock-mounted ribbon transducer and 3-layer wind screen system that combine to give the ribbon element excellent protection (making it their best choice for live work), features lowered proximity effect that make it a excellent for close miking instruments and singers, and carries a 5-year warranty with the first re-ribbon free. Like all Royer microphones, the R-10 Hot Rod is hand-built in Royer’s Burbank, CA facility.

John Jennings, Royer Labs’ Vice President of Sales and Marketing, commented on the new 25th Anniversary microphone, “Royer Labs is thrilled to be in our 25th year, and kicking it off with the R-10 Hot Rod is just pure fun. The guys in our shop cooked this version of the R-10 up and we’re all into it, with its cool looking trim package and its different sonic personality. It expands on the R-10 in interesting ways, creating a different flavor of R-10 that we think recording engineers and FOH engineers will really like.”
