Joe Chiccarelli / The White Stripe, The Strokes

“The AEA R88 has been an important part of my drum recording technique for the 6 years or more. It’s been on every session from Alanis Morissette to Jason Mraz and from The Strokes to The White Stripes. It handles high levels well. It’s tone is warm but with great detail and takes well to heavy processing. I wouldn’t be without it on a tracking session”
