The A840 is a pill-shaped, side-address, phantom-powered ribbon microphone with a bidirectional (or figure-of-8) pickup pattern. It is assembled with the same Big RibbonTM and tuning (16.5 Hz) as the R44 and shares many of the unique sound characteristics with its historic predecessor. With phantom-powered JFET electronics and a custom German transformer, the A840 achieves optimal performance with a wide choice of preamps ranging from vintage high-end models to USB audio interfaces in home studio setups. Designed to accommodate distant and medium miking duties, it exhibits a flat frequency response when placed 3 feet (1 meter) away from the source. As a result, the mic performs well on a variety of recording applications including vocals, brass, strings, woodwinds, guitars, and drums. The A840 ribbon microphone continues to gain followers with its natural sound, articulate midrange, and forgiving nature. Whether used for vocals or instruments, its performance is intimate, warm and detailed, yet never harsh.
