Cascade Knuckle Head Ribbon Microphone

The 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.

Cascade Knuckle Head Ribbon Microphone Details

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, the front and back of the mic produces the same vocing. 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.

Great Service! March 24, 2016
Reviewer: Jeffrey Stockham from Syracuse, NY United States  
My knowledge of sound gear is rudimentary at best but Dave Alewine provided clear answers to all my questions, provided outstanding customer service, and was simply a pleasure to talk with! The Knuckle Head mic was exactly what I needed, at a great price. I couldn't be happier. A big THANK YOU to Dave and Front End Audio!

Awesome Mic, Cool Looks March 11, 2015
Reviewer: Nicholas Homa from antioch, TN United States  
This mic looks as cool as it sounds. It creates amazing electric guitar recordings. It honestly blew me away, as previously I came from a background using only sm57's for guitar cabs. Wow, just wow!!!
