AEA R44ACE Active Ribbon Microphone
The AEA R44ACE is an active version on the R44CE. The R44ACE is a ribbon microphone with a one-piece cushion mount covered with a matte black finish. This microphone is perfect for many applications like brass, jazz vocals classic rock and much more. With use of the 44 ribbon designed by RCA this mic produces rich sound and character to your records. The R44C, AEA’s museum reproduction of the RCA 44BX, was first produced in 1998. To celebrate its 20 year run, we developed the active, cost-effective, and stylized R44ACE to memorialize the spirit of the R44 while making it affordable and appealing to a newer generation of ribbon mic adherents.
The ACE is an exciting amalgamation of 1930s technology and modern production that delivers the R44’s classic sound in a new context. The R44ACE utilizes new old stock RCA ribbon material and boasts a full, rich tonality with generous low end and the 44’s signature proximity effect. The active electronics within the R44ACE result in 12dB more output than the original R44CE, so it’s highly useful when recording quiet sources and is optimized for use with any preamp.
