Truly an exceptional microphone, the AEA A440 is unlike any other microphone on the market today.

The AEA A440 is based on the original RCA 44BX, but unlike the vintage RCA it uses phantom power and a Lundahl transformer. The ribbon itself is the same thickness as the original, and even uses material that was originally manufactured for RCA. The shell and construction of the AEA A440 really does make the mic a museum-quality faithful reproduction of the revered RCA. Built quality is second to none and you really will be hard pushed to find a better looking microphone on the market. The shell is a bronze cast yoke, and the red medallion transformer case features brass accents on a nickel finish. The mic comes with a canvas bag and an AEA case for storing the mic upright.
