AEA N22 is a new NUVO Series phantom powered ribbon microphone designed with the singer-songwriter musician in mind. Artists work hard at honing their musical craft for many years, and they have probably spent a considerable sum of money on their instrument. They feel strongly about their personal tone, which they have developed over many hours of practice, so they are willing to invest into a microphone that translates their tone in recording. Nonetheless, they cannot and do not want to invest into a giant mic locker, but rather need to fulfill all their recording needs with just a few pieces of gear. The new AEA N22 delivers on exactly those key points providing a great ribbon tone without the need for EQ in most applications, flexibility, and ease of use in home recording setups. Most importantly, the N22 was designed by listening first, and measuring only after experienced musicians and engineers told us the microphone sounded great. At $899 street price it does not break the bank, but delivers a handcrafted, US-made microphone that was built to last throughout a musicians career. Bridging the gap between vintage and modern, ribbon and condenser, studio and live, the N22 is the perfect companion for musicians and engineers alike.


  • Increased upper-midrange to make instruments cut through in a busy mix and to bring out critical sound characteristics of voices and stringed instruments without the need for EQ.
  • Reduced proximity effect to allow extreme up-close miking without boominess.
  • Highly protected ribbon to allow close-up miking without pop-filters, and wind protection live sound use.
  • Phantom-powered design for optimal performance with a wide range of preamps.
  • Uses the same 2.35 long Big Ribbon that AEA microphones have built a reputation on, continuing the RCA legacy.
  • Sturdy design that is easy to use and that works with third-party clamp mounts.
  • New custom, German made transformer with exceptional bandwidth, distortion, and consistency performance.
  • Smaller form factor that is easier to use with lightweight stands and in tight miking situations
  • Uncolored, well-behaved Figure-of-8 pattern.
