Pinnacle Stereo Active Passive Set includes: (2) FatTop II Active Passive Black Ribbon Microphone w/Lundahl,  (2) Shockmounts and Blumlein Bar in an Aluminum Case

The Fat Top II Active/Passive is a short ribbon microphone that delivers a warm, rich, fat, rounded tone. The bi-directional polar pattern picks up sound essentially equally from both faces with a large null between faces ideal for isolating sound sources. This microphone is fitted with an active/passive switch. When switched to active mode it isolates the output of the ribbon from the microphone preamp, the ribbon is consistently loaded at an optimal value. The active mode requires phantom power and will add up to 20db of gain. 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. Fat Top II Active/Passive has an upgraded Lundahl LL2913 transformer.  The upgraded Lundahl transformer with quality hardware provides extended frequency range, improved definition, lower noise floor and higher ceiling.

Sequential serial numbers are not an indication of a matched pair. Stereo pairs are built and assembled by our technicians.

If you would like to special request the serial numbers to be sequential, please be sure to add the matching option.
