Description

Based on the character of the legendary R44, the AEA R84 Ribbon Microphone provides classic tonality with extended top-end and reduced proximity effect for medium and close range recording.

In 2000, AEA sought to design a more compact, lighter and less expensive version of the hefty, eight-pound RCA 44BX. The result was the R84, which includes the best of the 44 series in a lower cost, three-pound package.

The R84 and original RCA 44 (now the R44C) share the same Big Ribbon element, transformer and other elements in the design. By using modern design techniques and stronger — but smaller — magnets in the R84, the classic RCA ribbon sound is retained.

However, the R84 has improvements — including less proximity effect, better top end, vibration isolation and greater placement flexibility on tight stages and in studios. The mic’s U-shaped yoke acts as a shock mount and also enables the user to position the R84 at numerous angles even with a straight stand.

A WORKHORSE RIBBON

The R84 series quickly endears itself to engineers and musicians due to its remarkably expansive frequency range complete with sweeping highs and booming lows.

The R84’s balanced and manageable proximity effect just feet away from the source bolsters the low end of vocals, drums, and brass. With a ribbon mic as multi-purpose, lightweight, and maneuverable as the R84, it is well-suited for both close-up and ambient mic applications.

The R84A retains the same sonic character of the R84 but offers an additional 12 dB of output and a stable impedance giving it even more flexibility when used with quiet sources and any preamp.

A MODERN CLASSIC

The R84 is a staple in numerous recording studios because of its unique tonality and classic sound. Its smooth, high-frequency roll-off and reduced sibilance make it the go-to choice for engineers tracking vocals and other instruments that often sound harsh when recorded with condenser mics.

The R84’s gorgeous mid-range captures the unique qualities of many instruments with detailed elegance. Its large low end is perfect for beefing up the sound of drum kits or thickening up the bass in thin vocals. It’s a mic that works well on practically any voice or musical instrument, making it useful tool in both recording and broadcast studios.

Features:

  • Warm, smooth and detailed classic ribbon sound
  • Full and rich tonality with generous highs and lows
  • Voiced like the legendary R44 Series but with less proximity effect
  • Versatile for both close and ambient applications
  • Made in the U.S.A.
