AEA R84 Ribbon Microphone for Sale

Wes Dooley?s excellent large ribbon microphone. The R84 was designed as an affordable version, but very close in sound to the AEA R44, which is a direct copy of the RCA 44bx.

This mic is about 5 years old, but in like new condition. I have used it numerous times and love the sound. It was always stored in the case (included) and stored upright, which prevents the ribbon from sagging and negatively affecting the sound. The mic has the chord attached, as you can see in the picture.

This mic works great on a number of instruments, especially strings, horns and woodwinds and has that great vintage vibe on the right vocalist.

Read about these at the Wes Dooley page

Tech sheet here: ... .4_web.pdf

The reason I?m selling this is to purchase an RCA 44bx, the holy grail of ribbon mics.

The cheapest you can get one of these new is around $925.00 plus sales tax and/or shipping.

Comes with AEA carrying case. Pictures on request. $775.00.
