The AEA R84 Ribbon Microphone brings the same ribbon motor and transformer of the celebrated AEA R44 to a more cost effective - but no less stellar sounding - microphone chassis. This microphone has become a modern-classic in its own right and should be in the mic locker of every studio. Vocals, drums, bass, guitar (acoustic or electric), piano, whole ensembles... this microphone does it all, as its predecessor and inspiration was designed to do way back in 1936. The R84 proves that some classics don't fade away... they adapt, improve, and strengthen with age. If you are new to ribbons, you are in for a treat! Experienced users have discovered the AEA R84 is an all purpose ribbon microphone, ideally suited for solo and accent work. It is hard to find an application where the R84 mic does not shine. The AEA R84 delivers the natural sound and figure-8 directional sensitivity a quality ribbon microphone should offer:
- 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 microphone 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 AEA 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.
The versatile AEA R84 large ribbon microphone is suitable for a wide range of instruments, including brass, strings, percussion, electric guitar and bass. Utilizing the same basic acoustic structure as the AEA R44CNE, the AEA R84 delivers that "big ribbon" sound. At just 0.00007 of an inch, the ultra-thin, low-tension ribbon element of the AEA R84 ensures a quick response, whatever the application. Capable of handling better than 165 dB SPL at higher frequencies, when used on vocals or instruments the AEA R84 offers a performance that is intimate, warm and detailed, yet never harsh.
