Why We Love This Product!

Classic Ribbon Technology - Out of Sight Quality!

Regardless of the fact that it looks more or less like a photon ray gun you would expect to see in the hands of some lamé-clad femme fatale in an classic episode of Buck Rogers on late-night television, the AEA R84 ribbon microphone really is one heck of a space-aged piece of work. If you're already a ribbon mic nut, then you'll totally flip out over this baby. It's got the same Large Ribbon Geometry (LRG), 2.35" x 0.185" x 2 micron pure-aluminum low-tension ribbon in the AEA 44... which is as close as you can get to the original RCA-44A ribbon mic... which, interesting, came out only a few years before the original Buck Rogers... weird.


Anyway, if you're not already into ribbon microphones, you will be once you get your hands on an AEA R84. Its ability to capture sound the way your ears do has made the R84 a favorite for recording guitar cabinets in particular - it's not dull of bulky at all, unlike many ribbons. No matter what you use it for, the R84 will give you some of the most natural-sounding results possible. Invest in one of these awesome mics, and it pay off in sound-quality, over and over again!
