The New Studio-standard Ribbon for Guitars, Vocals, and More!In the past few years AEA's famous R84 Ribbon Mic has become a new studio standard. Now AEA has once again expanded the sonic possibilities of ribbon microphones with the R92 Ribbon Mic. Reduced proximity bass boost and excellent wind blast protection make it perfect for close micing (6-12 inches) of guitar amps, vocals, percussion, etc. In addition, the smooth high frequency response of the R88 transducer has been further extended in the R92, making the R92 a one-of-a-kind voice in the world of ribbon microphones.
AEA has designed the R92 to have a little different tones on the front and rear pickup lobes of the mic. The front lobe of the R92 is the "crisp" side, offering exceptionally clean and realistic high end detail. The rear lobe is the "smooth"
The R92 is intended for amp, instrument, and vocal micing jobs. Its proximity effect is well-balanced for close-up use. A smooth extended high-end lets instrumental tracks fit well into a mix with little or no EQ. A flexible positioning rig and integrated shockmount make the R92 a breeze to setup and use. A captive 2-meter xlr microphone cable, and a foam lined carrying/storage case are included.
