For this week’s Music Connection Friday Freebie, there’s a great microphone up for grabs: the Royer R-10 Hot Rod 25th Anniversary Limited-Edition Ribbon Microphone. This limited-edition ribbon mic is Royer’s popular R-10 on steroids! The R-10 Hot Rod is fitted with a custom Anniversary Edition transformer that gives it 5dB more output than the standard R-10, with a punchier feel, increased low-midrange focus, and more open highs. The R-10 Hot Rod also sports a 25th Anniversary black-accented trim package that looks as cool as this mic sounds. Like the original R-10, the R-10 Hot Rod handles extremely high SPLs (160dB @ 1kHz), has an internally shock-mounted ribbon transducer & 3-layer wind screen system that combine to give the ribbon element excellent protection (making it Royer’s best mic for live work), features lowered proximity effect that make it an 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.

This drawing happens FRIDAY, 4/7/2023. Winners are announced every Friday after 1 p.m. on the Friday Freebie page. So put yourself in the running to win––ENTER NOW.
