Fat Head II-L pair - easy on the eye & the ear February 27, 2014
Reviewer: Rob Boullion from Columbia, MO United States  
Co-worked a 32-channel 'modern orchestra' session/concert series; the other engineer brought a pair of Fat Head IIs, one for flute/picc, one for horn.  Worked quite well, and the customers were happy!

The same orchestra contracted me to record sessions+concert, but the other engineer was not available... perfect!  Time to buy some ribbon mics!!

Had my eye on several others, but the FHIIs price/performance was hard to pass up.  I did research the options Cascade offered on these mics, though - when mixing, I occasionally wished they had a bit more depth/clarity.  I spent extra money for the Lundahl transformers - and I'm happy I did!  Solid, full and defined.

The Fat Head II-Ls will find use on stage, in hall and studio settings, with confidence in their sound and suitability.

BTW, I shopped around retailers, and as usual came back to Front End Audio for price, availability, service and reliability!  Thanks again!!
