The Pinnacle Microphones Fat Top Ribbon Microphone is a short ribbon passive microphone that delivers a warm, rich, fat, rounded tone. This version features a black body with silver grill.

The bi-directional polar pattern picks up sound essentially equally from both faces with a large null between faces ideal for isolating sound sources. Best suited for guitar cabinets, piano, brass and percussion instruments. Can be used in pairs in a Blumlein set up to pick up the entire room.

What We Think


The Pinnacle Fat Top is the same ribbon mic you came to know and love, under it's previous name - the Cascade Fat Head. It is a full, warm, meaty, and punchy ribbon mic, with lots of rich character. Put it on outside kick drum, bass guitar cab, and electric guitar cab - and you will see just how cool this mic is. Of course it handles acoustic guitars and drum overheads fine as well, but for me - this is the way to get a killer hard rock or metal guitar tracked at a price point that is very inviting.
