A unique voice in the world of ribbon mics.

Fourth in the family of AEA’s line of Big RibbonTM microphones, the AEA R92 was optimized for close work. With excellent wind-blast protection, the R92 is ideal for guitar, vocals, horns, percussion and strings at distances up to three inches.

Over the past few years, AEA’s acclaimed R84 ribbon microphone has become a new studio standard. Now AEA has again expanded the sonic possibilities of ribbon mics with the R92 Ribbon Microphone. Further reductions in the bass proximity effect and excellent wind blast protection make it suitable for close micing (3-12 inches) of guitar amps, vocals,

percussion, and more. 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 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 rolloff that can help to handle harsh transients in a very refined and flattering way. Just like its bigger brothers in AEA’s Big RibbonTM 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.
