Cascade Fat Head II Ribbon Microphone

The Cascade Fat Head II Ribbon Microphone offers the natural and open sound associated with the finest ribbon microphones. Fitted with world famous symmetrical ribbon and Lundahl LL2913 Transformer, this short ribbon microphone will produce the warmth that is vital to today's digital recording environment.

The Cascade Fat Head II Ribbon Microphone is the new version of the original Cascade Fat Head II. Over the past decade, the Cascade Microphones has played a significant role in the “ribbon revolution,” offering quality ribbon mics at affordable prices. Continuing with that tradition, the new Cascade Fat Head II Ribbon Microphone uses the same 2.5 micron ribbon as its predecessor, so you can expect the same warm and “fat” sound as before.

The Cascade redesigned the Fat Head II with both form factor and durability in mind. Its new brass body helps protect the microphone from stray RF noise and is larger than its predecessor for easier handling. Also incorporated into the new model is a reinforced neck and grill assembly along with upgraded plating on its hardware. It now also offers a gold-plated XLR connector. With these changes, the Cascade Fat Head II is more at home than ever in both project and professional studios, as well as live on stage.

The Cascade Fat Head II Stereo Pairs include an upgraded basket-style shockmount and the Blumlein stereo bar is now silk screened with mounting indicators.

The Cascade is now offering the Cascade Fat Head II exclusively with a Lundahl LL2913 transformer, which is mounted on a through-hole circuit board. Each microphone is carefully assembled and tested at their headquarters in Olympia, Washington. The Cascade Fat Head II remains an excellent choice for guitar cabinets, vocals, horns, strings, drum overheads… you love to use them on just about everything!
