66€...Amazing!
ARSLuke, 16.12.2019
Hi!

I am a FOH engineer, bought this mic because I wanted a ribbon mic for a guitar amp, but didn`t want to spend fortune. It turned out, I didnt`t have to. This mic is amazing. I understand that a "real" Royer would be much better, but for 66€ that I spent, it does a great job.
I use the mic on a guitar amp, it dilivers a smooth warm sound I was looking for. Used on a fender 5e3 tweed and Orange tiny terror, the crisp mids we wanted to cut out became soft and warm, lots of low end and smooth highs.

Definitely buying another one, to have a set for two guitar amps.

I also tried it on bass amp, great natural overdrive, but you have to be carefull, not to put it to close to the speaker...about 10cm from the grillcloth was ok.

Again, in my oppinion, great mic, especially for the price.

Amazing for the price.

I use this as a room mic for recording drums and sometimes just as a single mic for the entire drum set. It sounds warm and nicely compressed which I really like. I wouldn't use it for recording where I need crystal clear signal, but then anyway ribbon mic won't be the right choice. It's not a Royer or Coles, but for this price, you get a very decent ribbon mic. It comes with a shock mount and a nice wooden box which is cool.

a bit on the dark sound, even for ribbons mics. but i did a good recording of a Gretch Jim Dandy with this and it sounded not bad at all. used on the right sources it can be good. I still have to try it out on drums and electric guitars. But for this kind of money it is a fun lithle thing to have in your arsenal. Costs less than a few rounds with beer, and it will probably make you have more fun in the long run.
It needs a good preamp though, since it is very low output. if you dont have a in line gain booster or have a good preamp already that can handle very low output mics, you should probably look elsewhere for a ribbon mic. (the T.bone lollipop ribbons, are easier do use than this one in that regard).

Not great, not bad
TomAudio, 28.02.2020
I personally would invest a bit more and get the RB-500. The RB-100 sounds a bit muffled, smells pretty bad out of the box, and isn't an overall well usable microphone. The best thing I can say about it is that it works, it picks up sound, and it looks cool because its based on the Royer R-121, but soundwise its not that special.
