    J’ai enregistré un duo de jazz piano/sax, magnifique comme appoint sur le sax alto. Il s’intègre parfaitement dans le couple principal. J’ai hâte d’en avoir un deuxième ou bien le R88 stéréo ! Merci à Front End Audio

    The A840 is an amazing ribbon mic! Drums, vocals, acoustic/electric guitar, and pretty much anything you can think of really pop out of the speakers with this mic. The low end is rich a full and it responds to EQ very well. The active electronics make for some serious flexibility as well. Love it!
