Kristian Nord / The Great Escape

“I love all the AEA mics! My Go-To for overheads is my pair of R84s. The range of frequency is amazing, so much low end and such smooth high end. First time I can push the overheads without the cymbals getting too harsh. The R84 is also great on vocals and guitars.

The R88 is a weapon: Great as overhead when I don’t want to care about the phase. I love it as a kit mic as well, it sounds like standing in the recording room right in front of the drums. I combination with the AEA pre-amp it’s even better.”
