  • Features

The AEA N22 is a big ribbon microphone by dedicated ribbon mic developers AEA. Originally formed to create fine reproductions of the RCA R44, AEA have gone from strength to strength designing and manufacturing their own cutting edge modern ribbon microphones such as the AEA N22.

The AEA N22 was developed mainly for singer songwriters and musicians. Designed to be a characterful and unique mic, the N22 captures a songwriters personal tone, giving a unique and high quality signature to their recordings. At the centre of the design ethos is the big ribbon, delivering superb tone without the need for any further EQ tweaking. The engineers at AEA used their ears first, followed by their oscilloscopes, when developing the AEA N22. Experienced musicians were brought in from all genres to try out prototypes of the mic, and once everyone was unanimous in saying the mic sounded great, final tests and measurements were performed.

Experienced musicians were brought in from all genres to try out prototypes of the mic, and once everyone was unanimous in saying the mic sounded great, final tests and measurements were performed.

The AEA N22 uses AEA’s famed Big Ribbon technology, delivering superior sound in close mic situations on acoustic instruments. Using phantom powered electronics and a German custom made transformer, the AEA N22 performed incredibly with a huge range of pres, from vintage Neve modules in a commercial studio to USB audio interfaces in home setups. The ribbon on the N22 is pure aluminium, and has been heavily protected making it usable on live performances, and without needing a pop filter for vocal recordings. Built to last a lifetime, the N22 is hand crafted and built to AEA’s exacting high standard.

The AEA N22 is a member of the NUVO range from AEA. As with their other mics, the NUVO range has its routes in the original RCA ribbon mics of the 1930s. Taking this traditional design into the 21st century, the AEA N22 is the next advancement in ribbon microphone technology.
