FAT HEAD II LIVE Short Ribbon Microphone

5 Micron symmetrical ribbon designed for live applications

FAT HEAD II LIVE 5-micron ribbonFAT HEAD II LIVE shown with included case, jeweler's box, and shockmount.

Legendary symmetrical ribbon design is incorporated into the FAT HEAD II

Unlike most ribbon motors designed today with an offset ribbon element the new Cascade FAT HEAD II houses a hand-tuned ribbon element that incorporates the legendary symmetrical ribbon design. This design offers a true figure 8 pattern. The corrugated aluminum membrane itself is positioned in the center from front to back, thus producing a balanced audio input signal to both sides of the ribbon assembly. This design is very useful when executing a mid-side or Blumlein recording set-up and also great for live stage use.

The Cascade FAT HEAD offers the natural and open sound associated with the finest ribbon microphones. You will find that when recording acoustic guitars, guitar cabinets, vocals, drum over-heads, and countless other types of instruments the ribbon microphone will produce the warmth that is vital to today’s digital recording environment. We firmly believe you will also agree that this microphone will make a great addition to your collection.

We inspect the audio and built quality of each and every Cascade microphone before it leaves our shop, once you try one...you'll be a believer.
