A Ribbon for Close Miking!
AEA has once again expanded the sonic possibilities of ribbon mics with the R92 Ribbon Microphone. Intended for amplifier, instrument, and vocal micing applications, the R92's reduced proximity effect bass boost and excellent wind blast protection make it stelar for close miking of all of these applications, and much more. In addition, the smooth high-frequency response of the R88 transducer has been further extended in the R92, making the R92 a unique voice in the world of ribbon mics.
AEA R92 Ribbon Microphone at a Glance:
- A ribbon designed for close miking
- Individually voiced sides for different miking options
- Stunning on electric guitar
Engineered to reduce the proximity effect and offer excellent wind blast protection, the AEA R92 is great for close miking of guitar and bass amps, drums, and vocals. In addition, the integrated shockmount and swivel allow for easy setup and positioning in tight spaces. With the R92 ribbon microphone you can now get the mic right up on your sound source and get a great open and clear sound without the low end rumble.Individually voiced sides for different miking options
AEA has designed the R92 to have slightly different tones on the front and rear of the microphone. The front lobe of the R92 gives you clean, clear, and realistic high-end detail. Perfect for when you need the top-end to give your source its character. The rear lobe offers more of the classic ribbon high-end roll-off, to help handle harsh transients in a very refined and flattering way. And thanks to the larger ribbon elements, the bass reproduction of the R92 is very solid and extends to the lowest audible bass frequencies.Stunning on electric guitar
Close miking can sometimes provide a boomy low-end that can get too much and overpowering in some recording situations. The guitarists at AEA asked for a ribbon microphone that captured an authentic and balanced electric guitar tone when put right onto the grill of an amp. Thanks to its purely passive signal path the R92 not only handles the SPL levels of a loud electric guitar amplifier with ease, but it also translates all the gritty details of your tone distortion characteristics that you've created.AEA R92 Ribbon Microphone Features:
