Now AEA has once again expanded the sonic possibilities of ribbon mics with the R92 Ribbon Microphone. Are those elastic mounts on the top and bottom? AEA Ribbon Mics. One side of the R92 yields a tonality distinct from the other, essentially providing two mics in one giving options on different sources. Just like its brothers in AEA's Big Ribbon™ 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 upcoming R92 looks like it will be another winner for AEA. Most vintage ribbon microphones are spectrally balanced for medium and distant placements, principally because their inherently large proximity effect precludes close miking. 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 slightly different tones on the front and rear pickup lobes of the microphone. Reduced proximity bass boost and excellent wind blast protection make it suitable for close micing (6-12 inches) of guitar amps, vocals, percussion, etc. Chris.
