Cascade Fathead II Ribbon Microphone

Cascade Fat Head II - ALL SOLD OUT

Over the past decade, Cascade Microphones has offered quality ribbon mics at  affordable prices. Continuing with that tradition, we are excited to announce the redesigned Fat Head II short ribbon microphone. If you already loved the original Fat Head II, 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.

The Fat Head II was redesigned 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 hardware plating and a gold-plated XLR connector. The Fat Head II is great for project and professional studios, as well as live on stage.

The Fat Head II includes a Lundahl LL2913 transformer which is mounted on a through-hole circuit board. Each microphone is carefully assembled and tested at our headquarters in Olympia, Washington. The Fat Head II is an excellent choice for guitar cabinets, vocals, horns, strings and drum overheads.
