AEA Microphones R84 - Ribbon Mic

Add to Wish List
If you are new to ribbons, you are in for a treat! Experienced users have discovered the R84 is an outstanding general-purpose microphone, ideally suited for solo and accent work. It is hard to find an application where this mic does not shine. It is a fine example of the natural sound and figure-8 directional sensitivity a quality ribbon mic delivers.

Pure natural sound, just as you hear it when you're placing your mic in the studio.
Quick smooth transients that capture the feeling of being there without sounding like a recording.
Extended bass and treble that captures the details without shoving anything in your face.
A figure-eight pattern that focuses your recording on the sound you want.
We believe you will enjoy the confidence this mic inspires. It's a forgiving tool that makes your recording work easier, as it literally sounds good on everything. Try it first and you'll usually like it and find it sits well in the mix. When time is scarce and quality necessary, put the R84 to the test. Our users' experience is that you'll use it more and more (in pairs too!). Then it will start to really grow on you.

When I first got this mic I thought AEA was being cheap giving a protective sock instead of a wooden box but I soon realized a wooden box would have been a complete waste as this mic never leaves it,s stand & the sock slides over it perfectly protecting it from bumps & dust.I have bought & sold many mic,s but this one I will keep & make it part of my will.

This is a great mic. I love ribbons. Use it on guitar cabs, room mic on drums and some vocals. You need a decent preamp to drive it. You really need to crank it on some quiet sources. It used to be about 1000. Don't know why it went up in price
