Please take the time to check out the whole video, but there are some highlights you might want to focus in on at the starting at the 3:35 mark.      

This is a video demonstration of 4 different models of Cascade Ribbon Microphones on an acoustic source, in this case a Tony Francis Weissenborn played by Thomas Oliver. The 4 microphones are a Fathead I, Fathead I Lundahl Transformer, Gomez, and the X-15. We also recorded a vintage AKG C414 BULS as a reference microphone.

Cascade Ribbon Microphones are Steely Dan's choice when playing live. Their tours in 2011/2012 featured 6 Cascade FAT HEAD II microphones on their guitar amps. Charles Martinez (Steely Dan's sound person) selected Cascade Ribbon's because they do the best job of capturing the natural tone Steely Dan is known for.

Mike Poole- Nashville Audio Engineer

"I just finished a few days of tracking on a project with modern jazz drummer Dave King, most widely known for his work as a member of the avant-garde trio The Bad Plus. For Dave's kit I used a four-microphone setup, of which two- the overheads- were Cascade Active/Passive Fatheads. They worked perfectly for this application and gave us exactly what we needed- a good sonic image of the kit with no hype or brittle top end, enough lows to cover the toms well, and enough sensitivity to pickup all the detail on the snare and cymbals. Dave was loving the way the drums were sounding, and was impressed with the performance of the A/P Fatheads. I've attached some MP3s of the full four-mic kit as well as just the overheads."
