Royer Labs R-10 Hot RodTo mark its 25th anniversary, Royer Labs has announced the R-10 Hot Rod edition 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 shockmounted ribbon transducer and three-layer wind screen system that combine to give the ribbon element excellent protection, making it a good choice for live work. It features lowered proximity effect that also make it well suited to close miking of instruments and singers, and carries a five-year warranty with the first re-ribbon free.

‘Royer Labs is thrilled to be in our 25th year, and kicking it off with the R-10 Hot Rod is just pure fun,’ says Royer Labs VP of Sales & Marketing, John Jennings. ‘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 flavour of R-10 that we think recording engineers and FOH engineers will really like.’

Like all Royer microphones, the R-10 Hot Rod is hand-built in Royer’s Burbank, California, facility.
