AEA NUVO N22
The N22 represents a landmark in AEA's ribbon microphone designs. Aimed at close-miking applications, the NUVO N22 is a modern near-field and active ribbon mic with a rugged lightweight design, extended top-end clarity, and reduced proximity effect, making it perfect for intimate and close miking microphone usage.
The N22 can be positioned centimeters away from an instrument and retain a balanced sound with extended top end while avoiding the room tone that can cause problems in smaller spaces or iso booths. This is what makes the N22 special.
It exhibits a high-frequency bump at 3kHz making it ideal for recording vocals, electric guitar, bass cabs, kick drum, acoustic guitar, and percussion.
The N22 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.
The N22 is also available in a stereo set that includes transport case, stereo bar, windscreens and Blumlein adapter.
