Cascade Microphones 55-V-A overview

  • 1Description

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.

The tube preamp circuit uses a hand-selected EH 6072a vacuum tube, which can be combined with a variety of other 7-pin preamp tubes for optimizing the tone of the mic. Finally, the V55 microphone is fitted with a Lundahl LL 1935 transformer making it a suitable choice for recording in studio applications.
