-Economy version of the R44 Ribbon Microphone-

Whether it be the smooth brass section of a Hollywood soundtrack, the velvety lushness of a jazz vocal, or the larger-than-life drum sound of a classic rock record - chances are that you will find a 44 ribbon mic used on most of your favorite albums.
In studio use for more than 80 years, the 44 ribbon design by RCA is as rich in history as it is in sound and character. When the company’s microphone division was closed down in 1976, AEA began servicing ribbon microphones, and by 1998 were manufacturing 100% of the parts for the 44, resulting in the release of our very own version of this classic mic.
Its recognizable sound produces thunderous lows due to the strong proximity effect, full and rich mids, and a unique top end to take the edge off of harsh instruments
This beautiful, natural-sounding microphone provides an unmatched authenticity of sonic reproduction, particularly when placed at a distance in a well-tuned room.
The CE (cost effective) version delivers exactly the same sound as the R44C with absolutely no exceptions.
By simplifying the exterior trim of the microphone and reducing manual labor for assembly, AEA are able to offer a more affordable 44 model for those of us who don’t require the polish and museum-grade finish of the 44C version.

  • Same ribbon, transformer, and luscious sound as the R44C
  • Simple and elegant exterior trim in black and silver
  • Legendary character with more than 80 years of studio history
  • Full and rich sound; smooth highs and warm lows
  • ‘X’ motor option delivers 6 dB more dynamic range
