Overview

Open and natural-sounding ribbon mic.

The NUVO N8 was designed to be the most open and natural-sounding ribbon microphone AEA could make. Conceived to render acoustic spaces as faithfully as possible, the NUVO N8 microphone excels in capturing drum overheads, strings, classical ensembles, orchestras and rooms. As such, it is the ideal complement to the N22 microphone. But even when used up close, such as on guitar and bass amps, the AEA NUVO N8 delivers exceptional clarity and warmth while also taking EQ extremely well. Additionally, the NUVO N8’s unobtrusive size and black finish is ideal for orchestral and TV work, where microphones need to be easy to position and more or less invisible.

Under the Hood
Featuring the same Big Ribbon technology that has earned AEA its reputation, the NUVO N8 offers an incredible sound in distant-miking applications like drum overheads, strings, brass, and rooms. With phantom-powered JFET electronics and a custom German transformer the NUVO N8 achieves optimal performance with a wide range of preamps including USB audio interfaces in home studio setups. By employing a similar design philosophy as used on the popular R88 stereo ribbon microphone, AEA's NUVO N8 achieves an astonishingly open and natural sound that lets their famed Big Ribbon truly shine. 

Features

  • Designed for drum overheads, strings, and room miking
  • Open and natural with unobstructed response
  • Phantom-powered electronics for optimal performance with any preamp
  • Low profile and black finish for discreet placement
  • Featuring the same Big RibbonTM technology as the AEA R44 microphones
  • 100% handcrafted in Pasadena, CA

A perfect complement to the N22, stands alone in a studio beautifully. Order soon.
