These Cascade Microphones Fat Head Ribbon Microphones are sold as a stereo matched pair and are versatile enough to handle any vocal or instrument recording, and live sound applications. The Fat Head features a hand-tuned ribbon element that incorporates the legendary symmetrical ribbon design in order to achieve a true symmetrical figure-8 polar pattern. Its frequency and sensitivity response deliver pristine audio results, and the element's design is very useful when executing a mid-side or Blumlein recording. This pair ships with a Blumlein bar, shock mounts, and an aluminum case.

      Comments about Cascade Microphones Fat Head Ribbon Microphone Pair with Blumlein Bar (Black/Gold):

      Its hard to give it a thorough review since I have only had it a few days. Looks and works just as I expected. More mellow high end than a condenser. I love that it comes with the stereo bar. I have still yet to try it on a guitar cab which is one of the reasons I bought it.

        Comments about Cascade Microphones Fat Head Ribbon Microphone Pair with Blumlein Bar (Black/Gold):

        This product is an incredible value. There is not one mic on the market in this price range that can perform as well as the Fat Head, but you get 2 of them! I have used these mics in many scenarios, and it never disappoints. Whether you're micing acoustic guitar, piano, electric guitar amplifiers (use a pop filter), drum overheads, or as a room mic, the Fat Head will be one of your first picks.

          Amazing guitar and room mics. Low end is clear yet full and highs are pristine. The blumlein bar included is extremely useful for micing acoustic gtr or overheads.
