AEA A840 Figure-Eight Studio Microphone

The A840 is different from other microphones. One listen and the A840 stands out with its big, clean sound. It’s an ideal spot mic with its tight pattern, smooth extended top, and less proximity bass boost than the R44 and A440. The A840 effortlessly handles a broad range of applications from accent to ensemble. Over 30 years of servicing ribbon mics taught us what users like, and they all like the big sound of the RCA 44. Preserving and reintroducing that sound became an AEA mission. The AEA R44 and A440s, robust, heavy, and expensive to manufacture, are now in daily use worldwide. But that’s just the beginning of the story.
