The V55 from Cascade Microphones is a multi-pattern tube condenser microphone featuring an oversized dual-backplate, 6-micron, 35mm capsule for capturing audio. The microphone has 9 polar patterns which include omni, cardioid, figure-8, and 6 intermediate stages that are selectable on the custom vintage-style power supply. It can be used in several recording applications for acoustic and electric guitars, vocals, horns, strings, drums and more.
