The N8 ribbon microphone excels in capturing drum overheads and rooms, strings, classical ensembles, and orchestras. Even when used up close, such as on guitar and bass amps, the N8 delivers exceptional clarity and warmth while also taking EQ extremely well without ever being harsh.

By employing a similar design philosophy as used on the popular R88 stereo ribbon microphone, the N8 achieves an astonishingly open and natural sound that lets AEA's famed Big Ribbon truly shine. The aluminum ribbon in the N8 is identical to the flagship R44 model in its dimensions and tuning, putting it in direct lineage of the iconic RCA 44 type.

The N8's unobtrusive size and the "stealth" matte black finish is ideal for orchestral and TV work, where microphones need to be easy to position and more or less invisible. The N8's phantom-powered electronics and a custom German transformer complete the package and deliver exceptional low level detail and optimal distortion performance, even when driving long cable lines in remote recording situations.

N8 Features:

• Open and natural
• Designed for far-field: overheads, strings, and room mics
• Unobtrusive, video friendly look
• The same Big Ribbon as the R44
• Phantom powered electronics for optimal performance with any preamp
• 100% manufactured in Pasadena, CA
