The AEA A440 Ribbon Microphone is beyond comparison. It is modelled expertly on the original RCA 44 ribbon microphones in consultation with the engineers who first designed them. AEA then sourced the original ribbon material and custom made all the tooling to recreate those fabulous mics to original specs. There is simply no better way to get your hands on one of the best ribbon microphones ever produced even 80 years after conception, and with care, this microphone will last for generations.

The A440 maintains that warm, broad sound that is never harsh and fits perfectly in your studio mix. What lifts this mic above all others who shoot for the same target is the combination of this gorgeous ribbon sound with phantom power. Simply put, no one else does it as well as AEA. If you want some great sound, you may be happy with the A840, but if you are running a professional studio, or just really want to sound that way, the A440 is the microphone of your dreams.

For the uninitiated, ribbon microphones get their name because they use a light metal ribbon suspended between the poles of a magnet and can handle your range better than a condenser mic.
