AEA R88 Reviews5.0/5.0 based on 2 customer reviews
When I just want to record my voice and guitar into one stereo microphone I get an R88 and a Ribbon Pre, set the gain, close my eyes, and track all day. I have found my instrumentation and vocal technique have improved because Wes Dooley's masterpieces captured my performance with such detail and precision. If you can handle the truth, the R88 is for you.

Pure Butter!I've used the R88 on: harp, acoustic guitar, percussion, drum overheads, drum room, choir and recently dropped it in the middle of a string quartet (cello, viola, 2 x violin). We close mic'd the string quartet with a: U57, C12, Sony C800G and R92. The mix engineer chose to use the R88... it absolutely blew us away. As the artist said after hearing it... that's pure butter!
