SLR & Royer Labs Debuts the AxeMount Dual Microphone Mount
The ideal solution for blending an R-121 ribbon mic with a dynamic microphone
Royer Labs, the leading manufacturer of high-quality ribbon microphones and SLR, a premium microphone mount company, are pleased to announce the AxeMount Dual Microphone Mount, the ideal solution for blending a Royer R-121 ribbon mic with a 57-styled dynamic mic. This combination of microphones has become one of the most popular methods for capturing electric guitars, and now, this process is made easier than ever with the new AxeMount dual mount mic clip. The AxeMount was co-designed with SLR of Windsor, Ontario, Canada, and is manufactured by SLR in Canada.
The AxeMount microphone clip positions an R-121 directly next to a 57-style dynamic microphone, with the setup phase-aligned and ready to record—resulting in the ultimate electric guitar miking package. Whether one requires small positional adjustments on a loudspeaker or the ability to easily switch both mics to a different cabinet, the new AxeMount clip makes the process as easy as moving a single mic stand.
The natural, full bodied sound of the Royer R-121 ribbon mic, blended to one’s preference with the fist-forward pointedness of a 57-styled dynamic microphone, facilitates phenomenal tailoring of recorded and live guitar tones. In the past, this miking process necessitated the use of two mic stands, two clips, and considerable patience to get the mics properly aligned and in-phase with each other. The new AxeMount eliminates these challenges and makes this classic miking technique easy to achieve.
John Jennings, Royer’s VP, commented on the company’s new AxeMount Dual Microphone Mount, “The AxeMount is one of those simple add-on tools that instantly makes you say, ‘Why didn’t we think of this before?’ When Martin Bak of SLR approached us with the idea, it was a no-brainer to partner on the development. This clip is rugged and easy to use and, most importantly, takes the guesswork / experimentation out of the phase alignment equation when combining a 57-style dynamic mic with a Royer R-121 ribbon mic, which is the combination for capturing all the energy and nuance of an electric guitar. The AxeMount facilitates a quick setup and it’s inexpensive and easy to use, so I think everyone interested in using the R-121 / dynamic mic method will want to have a few of these around".
The Royer Labs AxeMount Dual Microphone Mount carries an MSRP of $49.99 and will be sold for $39.99 from AxeMount.com in September 2019.
