Over the past decade, Cascade Microphones has played a significant role in the “ribbon revolution,” offering quality ribbon mics at affordable prices. Continuing with that tradition, they are excited to announce the newly designed Fat Head II short ribbon microphone. If you already loved the original Fat Head II, fear not! The new version uses the same 2.5 micron ribbon as its predecessor, so you can expect the same warm and “fat” sound as before.
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 Fat Head II is more at home than ever in both project and professional studios, as well as live on stage.
The Fat Head II is now fitted exclusively with a Lundahl LL2913 transformer, which is mounted on a through-hole circuit board. Each microphone is carefully assembled and tested at Cascade’s headquarters in Olympia, Washington. The Fat Head II remains an excellent choice for guitar cabinets, vocals, horns, strings, drum overheads… just about everything!
