With a thick low-end and hefty midrange, the dual-toned and near-field R92 ribbon mic is an exceptional tool when building a classic sound.

- Made in the U.S.A.
Offering a classic ribbon character in the form of a near-field, the dual-tone R92 functions as a versatile creative tool with innumerable possibilities. Similar in sound to the AEA R84, but with a more pronounced midrange and minimized proximity effect, the R92 performs brilliantly when up close to brass, guitar amps, kick drum, and percussion.
One side of the R92 yields a tonality distinct from the other, essentially providing two mics in one giving options on different sources. When supplemented with a brighter mic signal, the R92 serves to balance the scales in a mix with its low-end clarity and warm midrange.
A nearfield mic with charecter
The R92 was designed to be positioned between 1 and 18 inches from the sound source. It retains a balanced frequency response across the spectrum with limited proximity effect. The R92 naturally reduces proximity effect while also avoiding the room tone that can cause problems in smaller spaces or iso booths.
Naturally rolling off the low-end before it hits the ribbon creates a much different sound than using electronic equalization to roll off the low-end in post. In a traditional ribbon mic, the proximity effect can be so strong that it obscures the mid-range, which can be extremely difficult to correct.
