Cascade Microphones FAT HEAD Ribbon Microphone (Brown Body and Gold Grill, Stock Transformer)
These FAT HEAD Ribbon Microphones from Cascade Microphones are sold as a stereo matched pair and are versatile enough to handle any vocal or instrument recording, and live sound application. 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.
Stereo matched pair
Hand-tuned ribbon element
True figure 8 pattern
Balanced audio input signal to both sides of the ribbon assembly
Suited for guitar cabinets, drum over-heads, vocal, piano, horns, strings and more
Cloud Microphones Cloudlifter CL-2 Mic Activator
The Cloudlifter CL-2 Mic Activator from Cloud Microphones is a compact, dual-input solution for common audio problems in the field and in the studio involving low-output passive microphones, including ribbons. The CL-2 uses any standard phantom-powered mixer or microphone input device to provide up to +25 dB of clean, transparent gain. This improves signal-to-noise ratio and improves the performance of passive microphone signals by driving stronger, cleaner signals over longer XLR cable runs, making them ideal for broadcast, live, and studio applications. The CL-2 is housed in a rugged steel enclosure which offers shielding and durability.
Gives passive mics up to +25 dB additional active output and keeps the direct audio path free-and- clear of transformers, capacitors, and resistors. The CL-2 houses discrete JFET circuitry that delivers clean gain while preserving the natural sonic characteristics of the source
Useful for a Variety of Applications
Use with noisy or low-gain preamps
Use with mixers/preamps that negatively impact the sound at higher gain setting
Use with low-output dynamic microphones and ribbons
Mic softer sound sources such as acoustic instruments and voice
Use for long cable runs
Features at a Glance

2 x Kopul Studio Elite 4000 Series XLR M to XLR F Microphone Cable - 6' (1.8 m), Black
The Kopul Studio Elite 4000 Series XLR M to XLR F Microphone Cable (6') is a studio-quality cable for connecting mics to mixers, preamps, audio interfaces and recorders; or to be used in any other application where XLR connectivity is required. The cable is engineered to be both quiet and durable, and is well-suited for critical recording and broadcast situations.
Studio Elite 4000 Series cables are made from 24 AWG OFC copper wire that's wrapped with PE insulation and a conductive PVC inner shield. A cotton-yarn inner layer helps reduce electrostatic and microphonic noise. A 98% braided outer shield makes the cable resistant to EMI and RFI noise. The Neutrix XX silver connectors provide a high level of connectivity, and all the solder connections are shrink-wrapped for protection.
98% braided shield offers protection from EMI and RFI noise.
Twin-conductive PVC inner shielding provides 100% coverage of the core conductor. It helps keep the cable's signal from radiating and affecting nearby cables, and also helps prevent external EMI from penetrating to the cable's core.
24 AWG oxygen-free stranded copper inner core provides the best possible conductivity.
Cotton yarn reduces electrostatic and microphonic noise.
All solder points shrink-wrapped for protection.
Neutrik XX silver connectors offer high conductivity.
