“The R84 is aces across the board with sound quality. Musically capturing exactly what I’m looking for and built like a tank!”
Justin Meldal-Johnsen / Beck, Nine Inch Nails, Air
“My N22 has turned out to be an incredible bass amp mic…to such an extent that I won’t record bass without it.”
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.”
Chris Koltay / War On Drugs, Deerhunter
“AEA mics are my first line of defense in the war against boring, sterile sounds. You will not find a finer example of the intersection of craftsmanship and sonic truth.”
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…”

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