Overview
  • 1Description

The FAT HEAD BE (Bare Essentials) from Cascade Microphones features a symmetrical ribbon design with the corrugated aluminum membrane positioned in the center from front to back, producing a balanced audio input signal to both sides of the ribbon assembly. This design is especially useful when working with a mid-side or Blumlein recording set-up and is also applicable to live stage use.

The microphone is well suited for recording guitar cabinets, or used as drum over-heads, and for capturing vocal, piano, horns, strings, etc., with a "warm," full bodied signature. This Lundahl LL2912 transformer BE version includes an identical FAT HEAD microphone as found in other packages, but dispenses with the aluminum case, wood box and premium shock mount to lower the cost of admission. The microphone ships with a rubberized microphone stand clip and a vinyl pouch.
