Description

In the past few years AEA's acclaimed R84 Ribbon Microphone has become a new studio standard.  Now AEA has once again expanded the sonic possibilities of ribbon mics with the AEA R92 Ribbon Microphone.  Reduced proximity bass boost and excellent wind blast protection make it suitable 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 unique voice in the world of ribbon mics.  AEA has designed the R92 to have slightly different tones on the front and rear pickup lobes of the microphone. The front lobe of the R92 is the "crisp" side, offering exceptionally clean and realistic high end detail.  The rear lobe is the "smooth" side, which has a bit of classic ribbon high end roll-off that can help to handle harsh transients in a very refined and flattering way.  Just like its bigger brothers in AEA's LRGTM microphone series, the bass reproduction of the R92 is very solid and extended to the lowest audible bass frequencies.  The R92 is designed with an integral elastic shock mount, featuring a unique mounting system that allows excellent flexibility of mic positioning.  The mic ships with a two meter cable and a durable plastic carrying case.

AEA's Matt Ashman comments about the R92: "We designed it to have a very full range sound, and to capture it all with a minimum of resonance artifacts for the ultimate in realism. It's perfect for getting FAT guitar sounds with a present and clean high end."'
