AEA R44ce.... AMAZING

Just thought I would post this because I just used mine for the first time today and.. WOW!!! acoustic guitar, straight in, no EQ NOTHING, mandolin, SAME, banjo, SAME, and last but not least.... Yamaha C3 "low strings", not a damn thing added to that either!!!! This mic is UNREAL!!! My clients were more impressed then I was!

Time for a 2nd one!!

I used one of channels in my my Amek APC 1000. The noise floor was surprisingly low for a mic like this.

Here for the gear
Hey guys,

I just got an AEA R44ce! Sounds awesome!

One thing is, when I put it right next to my U87ai to a/b the mics for vocals, the U87 was getting almost completely cancelled out by the AEA. Maybe the magnet messed with it? I don't know, but the sound level dropped about 20db on the U87. Once I pulled the U87 away from the 44 it mic Popped back to normal level.

Any ideas??

Thanks

It was asserting it's dominance?

Could it be that the magnet of the R44 is pulling the 10dB pad magnetic reed switch in the U87?
