Cascade Fathead II Blumlein Pair - Black/Silver
Unlike most ribbon motors designed today with an offset ribbon element, the Cascade FAT HEAD II houses a hand-tuned ribbon element that incorporates the legendary symmetrical ribbon design in a true, figure-of-8 pattern. The 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 wide open sound, associated with only the finest ribbon microphones. Whilst recording acoustic guitars, guitar cabinets, vocals, drum over-heads, and countless other types of instruments, you'll discover the ribbon microphone will produce the warmth that is vital to today's digital recording environment.
Cascade inspect the sound and built quality of each and every microphone before it leaves Cascade's workshop, once you try one...you'll be a believer.
FAT HEAD II Upgrades: Polished nickel grill, neck and nut with a larger body, plus a heavy-duty premium shockmount. Sonically the same as the standard FAT HEAD.
