Ribbon microphones had fallen way out of favor with most recording engineers until Royer Labs rekindled the love for these excellent microphones. Indeed, the company is responsible more for the new generation of ribbons than any other manufacturer.
There’s a reason why Royer mics are just about standard on any recording session, and that’s because of not only thanks to the design of David Royer, but the attention to detail in how they’re made. This excellent video featuring company president Rick Perrotta gives you a behind the scenes look at how these excellent microphones are made.
What’s especially cool is at look at corrugating and installing the ribbon, and the testing and calibration. It gives you a new appreciation for this new take on a classic design.
