    The Legendary symmetrical ribbon design is incorporated into the FAT HEAD!

    Unlike most ribbon motors designed today with an offset ribbon the new Cascade FAT HEAD 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.

    Cascade FAT HEAD Ribbon Microphone Includes:

    • FAT HEAD Ribbon Microphone
    • Polypropylene case
    • Leatherette pouch
    • Mic clip

    The FAT HEAD warm full-bodied signature and increased sensitivity is what you would expect and demand from a professional ribbon microphone and the FAT HEAD delivers. The FAT HEAD is suited for guitar cabinets, drum over-heads, vocal, piano, horns, strings and much more.

    The FAT HEAD offers a unique Radian Grill Design

    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. Cascade firmly believes you will also agree that this microphone will make a great addition to your collection.
