Royer's R-121 25th Anniversary microphone pair celebrates the mic's legacy with a unique, limited-edition Distressed Rose finish that gives a variety of looks, from a dark bourbon color in lower studio lighting and onstage to a rich rose color in brighter light. This stunning finish is Royer's way of letting everyone in on the 25th Anniversary party.

Released in 1998, the R-121 microphone was the first radically different but modern ribbon microphone, singlehandedly creating the great ribbon microphone resurgence that is still growing and going strong today. The R-121 is a staple on electric guitars around the world and is also one of the finest brass mics available. When you want to record an instrument as naturally as possible, you reach for an R-121. 

Whether used in the studio or kept as a collector's item, these R-121 microphones with a Distressed Rose finish will be one of the coolest mics you'll own.
