Overview

Meet the AEA R88 mk2, a well-deserved update to AEA's original Blumlein stereo ribbon, with a smaller footprint and a vastly improved mount. With 90-degree-crossed ribbon elements, the R88 is a point-and-shoot stereo mic perfect for drum overheads, room mics, orchestras and choirs, and anything else that needs to be on both the left and the right of your recording. Spin the mic 90 degrees for an instant mid-side microphone array for next-level stereo processing and control. AEA's tried-and-true Big Ribbon from the flagship R44 makes up the central nervous system of the R88, though a more acoustically open headbasket lets more high frequency information in and produces a more natural, extended tonality.
