Wes Dooley and the AEA NUVO Ribbon Microphones at AES Convention 2015

In the sea of bodies and heads swarming around at an AES Convention, it's pretty easy to find Wes Dooley of AEA Microphones thanks to his signature top hat. In this video from the 139th AES Convention at the Javits Center, Wes lends Jim from Reverb one of these fashionable accessories while chatting him up about the new NUVO N8 ribbon microphone.

This beauty takes the big ribbon technology from AEA's flagship R44 and tucks it into a sleek new design geared towards far-field, distant recording applications. Phantom powered active electronics juice up the output gain for use with any type of preamp, so you don't have to completely dime your mic pre to get a strong signal when recording orchestras, ensembles, and rooms.
