“We credit much of our sound in the studio to AEA microphones. They have shaped our sound from the very beginning, and without them our record wouldn’t have had quite the same character and earnestness. “

Mike Schuppan / M83, Paramore

“These have become my desert island ribbons.”

“AEA Microphones, specifically the N8 Stereo Pair, coupled with the RPQ2, give me the exact warmth, transparency and detail that I had been searching for!”

Artists
Vance Powell / Jack White, The White Stripes, Chris Stapleton

“I’ve been using the R88 lately as a room mic out in front of the drums. I really like that a lot, it sounds really cool…”

Artists
Jason Elgin / Jerry Lee Lewis, Collective Soul

“I love the R88 on drums. Whether as an overhead or room, it pretty much was the only mic we needed. The long ribbon design makes the mic sound huge.”

Artists
Greg Curtis / The Bridge Recording

“What I like about the KU4s is that they are a rendition of the originals that leaves nothing to be desired.”

Artists
Don Zientara / Fugazi, Minor Threat

“[The N8s] are magnificent for guitar amps, vocals, brass, and stringed instruments! They have a good deal of top end, yet are never harsh. Smooth. Very smooth!”

Artists
Greg Norman / Electrical Audio

“Those [N8s] are getting tried on everything. I love the durability and eq of it. I’ve been a fan of using it on bass amps, and brass actually.”

Artists
Morten Lindberg / Lindberg Lyd, 2L

“The N8 provides the best focus mics I’ve ever heard; they blend into the main array as butter.”

Artists
Jeff Ballard / Brad Mehldau, Ray Charles

“The [N8s] sound absolutely phenomenal!! It’s shocking to tell you the truth. The mic sound is so honest, so close to what the drums sound like. I couldn’t be more satisfied.”

Artists
Pierre De Reeder / Rilo Kiley, She & Him

“[With the N8s] there was an openness that I’ve just never really heard quite so ‘naturally’ before. And there was a depth that these gave, too, that was just astonishing.”

Artists
Taylor Hales / Electrical Audio

“[The N8] has also shone on anything where some girth and low-end and low-mid tilt were called for: small or nasal-sounding vocals; horns; drum overheads recording bright cymbals; tink-y percussion.”

Artists
Dan Mangan

“The R44 was my go-to while recording Club Meds. Vocals, acoustic guitars, pianos, electric organ, horns, you name it. Stereo pair or mono. I love how buttery it is. My favourite mic that I own!”

Artists
Ronan Chris Murphy / King Crimson

“I tried the AEA N22 on a wide range of sources and it always sounded good, which means that artists recording with the N22 will never deliver a bad sounding recording to me!”

Artists
Damon Whittemore / ValveTone

“We also used the A440 on the amazing French vocalist, Cyrille Aimee, where it sounded huge. Perfect for her voice on this hot club project. She fell in love with the mic!”

Artists
Eddie Van Halen / Van Halen

“These are the best f#%*ing mics I’ve ever used!”

Artists
Danny Blume / Elysian Fields, Iggy Pop

“[The R84] is one of my top go-to mics for lead vocals, especially highly dynamic singers who can generate some harsh upper midrange in louder sections.”

Artists
Daniel Shores / Sono Luminus

“The silky and transparent sound of the N8 makes it the perfect microphone for recording acoustic music. The N8’s almost crystalline quality allows you to forget the microphone is even there.”
