TAGGED: R44 series

Artists
Jamie Mefford / Nathaniel Rateliff, Jamestown Revival

“They rarely get unplugged, but instead move around the room as tracking happens…”

Artists
Mark Egan / Pat Metheny, Elements

“…I suspect there isn’t a sound an AEA can’t conquer. I won’t do a session without them.”

Artists
David Longstreth / Dirty Projectors

“Nothing captures the presence of a vocal like the AEA 44C…”

Artists
Hanan Rubinstein / Alicia Keys, Pharrell, Kanye

“I’m lovin the mics… the R44 is incredible on anything I put it on pretty much”

Artists
Josh Block / Leon Bridges

“There are very few pieces of equipment that can handle the amount of tasks I put the KU5A up against. It handled all of them effortlessly with the perfect amount of clarity and enjoyable qualities. It’s a winner, hands down.”

Artists
Jacob LaCally / The California Honeydrops

“The 44 is easily my favorite mic for capturing a true representation of any instrument. I find that it has the ability to grab every detail of an entire drum kit without the need for any close mics.”

Artists
Jonathan Clay / Jamestown Revival

“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. “

Artists
Mike Schuppan / M83, Paramore

“These have become my desert island ribbons.”

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
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
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
Jake Aron / Grizzly Bear, Jamie Lidell, Solange

“The RPQ500 has left me reaching for a ribbon over a dynamic mic every time I record guitars.”

Artists
Robert L. Smith / David Bowie, Aerosmith, Lady Gaga

“[N8s] give me the sound exactly the way I want to capture it, which, to me, is the very definition of a ‘dream’ microphone.”

Artists
Pete Townshend / The Who

“The R88 is beyond belief! It makes every room in my house like a perfect room…A really joyous mic!”

Artists
Chris Taylor / Grizzly Bear

“The R44 through the RPQ2 is one of my favorite chains lately. It sounds absolutely incredible…”

Artists
John Kurlander / Lord of the Rings, Beatles

“The N8 has a fantastically full and natural tone, and can easily and safely be hoisted above an orchestra.”

Artists
Jon Castelli / Lady Gaga, Ariana Grande, Kesha

“The R88 is the most realistic mic I’ve ever used. I still get confused if during playback the piano is coming out of the speakers or if the pianist is still playing in the room.”
