AEA R84 Silver Limited Edition – No Longer Available

Special limited edition version of the R84 ribbon microphone with a mirror chrome finish
MFR# R84 Silver Limited Edition (SLE)

Product Description

To commemorate 25 years of selling ribbon microphones, Audio Engineering Associates has created the AEA R84 Silver Limited Edition (SLE).  Two years ago AEA made a chrome R84 to display at trade shows.  Due to popular demand, they've decided to create a limited edition run in honor of twenty-five years of serving the ribbon microphone market.  The R84 SLE is limited to a run of only 125 units.

The versatile AEA R84 Silver Limited Edition (SLE) large ribbon microphone is suitable for a wide range of instruments, including brass, strings, percussion, electric guitar and bass.  At just 0.00007 of an inch the ultra-thin, low-tension ribbon element of the R84 ensures a quick response, whatever the application.  Capable of handling better than 165 dB SPL at higher frequencies, when used on vocals or instruments the R84 offers a performance that is intimate, warm and detailed, yet not ever harsh.

The AEA R84 is supplied in a complete system that includes a shock mount, 6' mic cable and sturdy foam-lined carrying case.  Weighing-in at under 2 lbs (0.9 Kg) and measuring 8" (30 cm) tall and 2.7" (7 cm) in diameter.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

Thank you so much! Vintage King has been so fair and easy to work with. I can't thank you enough. It feels good to trust such a hefty purchase to folks who are so helpful and knowledgeable. Vintage King is a sound designers dream store.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
