The AEA R84 is a passive ribbon microphone that’s designed to be flexible and practical for many different recording situations. This microphone was re-engineered to be more efficient, lighter and less expensive than the R44 resulting is a new microphone with a classic sound. The R84 produces rich and full low-mids, a smooth top end, and has a well-behaved bidirectional pickup pattern. These aspects, combined with the reduced proximity effect, make the R84 incredibly well-suited for both close-up and ambient mic applications in medium-sized rooms. It’s just as versatile as an R44, flattering voice, strings, brass and drums alike.
