Cascade DR-2 Ribbon Microphone

The Cascade DR-2 Ribbon Microphone is a passive, dual-ribbon design mic with a symmetrical figure-of-8 pickup pattern. Designed for professionals, the DR-2 produces equal (but out-of-phase) response from the front and back sides of the motor, making it useful as the “side” channel in a mid-side setup, or within a Blumlein array.

The Cascade DR-2 Ribbon Microphone is designed to offer an increased sensitivity. Unlike offset ribbon designs, this passive, dual-ribbon design microphone produces equal response from the front and back sides of the motor.

The ribbons are corrugated aluminum measuring 1.5'' in length and 0.15'' in width, mounted parallel 5/8'' apart. The design intent of using two ribbons is to increase sensitivity.

The ribbon motors are housed within a mesh grille. The Cascade DR-2 Microphone provides no other screening or blast filtering, which likely has the benefit of reducing unwanted resonance but does expose the ribbon elements to contamination. The use of a pop filter when tracking vocals is recommended.

The frequency response is slightly elevated from 40Hz to 100Hz, flat through 4000Hz, and rolls off through 15,000Hz.
