Royer Labs’ replacement magnet for EMT 140 reverb plate

Posted on: Thursday 19th of December 2019

Royer Labs’ President Rick Perrotta has developed a high-performance replacement magnet assembly for the vintage EMT 140 reverb plate. Designed as a drop-in replacement for missing or weak magnet assemblies, the 140-NM offers improved performance over the original magnet design.

The Royer 140-NM is precision manufactured using six neodymium magnets arranged in a ‘turret’ fashion. This design approach results in an assembly that offers greater flux density for enhanced performance of any EMT plate. The new design lowers distortion and makes the drive coil more responsive.

Designed by Rick Perrotta in partnership with Advanced Theoretical Concepts, the Royer 140-NM package includes an acrylic centering disc, mounting hardware, and a comprehensive set of instructions, along with suggested tips to help audio engineers get the most from their investment.

Rick Perrotta, President of Royer Labs, commented on the new magnet assembly, “We spent a lot of time making sure our design was not only going to serve as a replacement for the original magnet assembly, but offer improved performance as well. I’m very proud of this accomplishment.”

The 140-NM is the first product available in Royer’s Custom Shop, which was created to release products designed by Rick Perrotta and/or David Royer that fall outside of Royer’s regular pro audio offerings. Custom Shop products can be purchased from Royer’s online Custom Shop web page – https://royerlabs.com/customshop/

The Royer Labs 140-NM EMT Reverb Plate magnet assembly carries an MSRP of $799.
