Retaining many of the sonic characteristics of it’s daddy mic, the A440, the AEA A840 is at a lower price point to AEA’s flagship mic products, bringing that stunning Big Ribbon sound to greater audience. The ribbon inside the AEA A840 is the same Big Ribbon as with other AEA mics, and is equally capable of producing the beautifully smooth and natural sonics as the other mics, without any nasty resonances that can be found with shorter ribbons. The result is an astoundingly accurate sonic reproduction. In addition, the lower proximity effect compared to some of its non active counterparts mean the A840 is a great spot mic that can be placed within a foot of the sound source without producing any bass distortion.

The AEA A840 provides all of these wonderful benefits within one single, well constructed and great looking package. The flexibility that comes with an active microphone combines with the stunning warmth of its big ribbon, and the price point of the A840 makes it an almost irresistible mic for any studio.

The mic also comes with its own vertical AEA case for secure transport and shipping.
