Watch @vintagekingaudio's shootout of the new AEA KU5A and RCA BK5. Link in bio 👆 #RibbonRegram from @vintagekingaudio - AEA @ribbonmics has just announced the release of their new KU5A ribbon microphone. Taking inspiration from the RCA BK-5, the KU5A borrows the vintage mic's form factor, but updates it with a supercardioid pattern.
We’re on a roll today with sessions! This AEA Session features a guitar duet rendition of The Beatles’ ‘Things We Said Today’ performed by duo Adam Levy [@stringjuggler] and Mason Stoops [@masonstoops] of Kibi Dango [@kibidangomusic]. From a cozy, wood-walled living room, the performers deliver a surf-jazz version of the classic ballad, with amps recorded up-close by the supercardioid KU5A while an R88 captures room sound from afar. All microphones run through the TRP2 and RPQ2 preamps. Head to the link in our profile to watch!

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. #aeaKU5A
