The R-121 is Royer's flagship microphone and the world's first radically redesigned ribbon microphone. Royer did away with the large, heavy, fragile, "classic" approach to ribbon microphones and went in a completely new direction. The R-121 gives all of the warm, natural tonal response that top engineers have always loved ribbon mics for, but in a compact, light-weight, higher output, tough-as-nails package that was unheard of in a ribbon mic before the R-121.

Like many of the best loved classic ribbon mics, the R-121 has a figure-8 pattern, sensitivity in the dynamic mic range, and a warm, realistic tone and flat frequency response. But that's where the similarities end. By using advanced materials and a blend of cutting edge and old-school hand-build construction techniques, the R-121 is a far more versatile and user-friendly ribbon mic that can stand up to the most demanding tasks, including live stage use. It's built solid enough for Royer to give it a lifetime warranty.

The R-121's proprietary offset ribbon transducer (Patent Number; 6,434,252) is the first of its kind, positioning the ribbon element closer to the front (logo) side of the microphone. This arrangement gives the ribbon more room to move within the prime magnetic field while maintaining full frequency response during high SPL recordings. It's an intrigle piece of the magic of all Royer R-series microphones.
