  • News

    The KU5A is an exciting leap in ribbon microphone technology.

    Delivering AEA’s rich ribbon tone, the end-address, supercardioid KU5A has unparalleled directionality.

    Never before has a ribbon mic delivered as much directional clarity and breadth of sound as the KU5A, and in a form fit for both studio and live settings.

    Whether the source is a vocal, guitar, or even a snare drum, the KU5A delivers where other conventional ribbons cannot.

    From close range, the KU5A delivers an extended top end while retaining the ribbon character one expects from an AEA microphone.
