The Cascade Knuckle Head is a passive ribbon microphone that combines the acoustic components of the successful Fat Head ribbon with a shockmounted headbasket design reminiscent of early broadcast microphones. The ribbon motor uses Neodymium magnets surrounding a 2.2-micron corrugated aluminum ribbon measuring 5mm x 45mm. The ribbon is mounted symmetrically within the magnetic gap, making the Knuckle Head suitable as the "mid" mic in a MS setup - the front and back of the mic should produce the same sound.

Cascade Knuckle Head - Black/Nickel Ribbon Microphone w/ Lundahl

The Cascade Knuckle Head is a passive ribbon microphone that combines the acoustic components of the successful Fat Head ribbon with a shockmounted headbasket design reminiscent of early broadcast microphones. The ribbon motor uses Neodymium magnets surrounding a 2.2-micron corrugated aluminum ribbon measuring 5mm x 45mm. The ribbon is mounted symmetrically within the magnetic gap, making the Knuckle Head suitable as the "mid" mic in a MS setup - the front and back of the mic should produce the same sound.

The ribbon motor and headbasket are suspended within a 6-inch diameter metal hoop by eight springs. The output transformer is located within the cylindrical shaft below the shockmount hoop. The Knuckle Head offers a distressed antique copper finish that is hand-applied to each individual microphone. By using this method, every Knuckle Head becomes unique with it's own character and is destined to become an old school classic.
