The KU5A is ideally equipped to capture the sound of brass instruments whether live, in the studio, or in the middle of a full orchestra. With its supercardioid polar pattern, near-field design, balanced low-end, and extended top-end, the KU5A excels at capturing the sound of your instrument while limiting room reflections.
The KU5A is the most protected ribbon mic in the entire AEA line. There are multiple layers of fabric and foam between the outside grille and the ribbon. If you are still experiencing any wind noise, try using the AEA KU5A Windscreen. It attaches to the front of the mic and provides an extra layer of protection from wind and any plosives.
