    Cascade Microphones 99-GL-A reviews

    FAT HEAD II Ribbon Microphone (Brown/Gold) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from a great ribbon for the money so far I used the fat head for acoustic guitar, electric guitar cab and vocals. It provides a warm and natural sound I could not achieve with my condensers or my sm57. the highs are open but not harsh, I wouldn't count on it to pierce through a dense mix on vocals, but for folk rock kind of stuff it's beautiful. On acoustic I used it as the mid mic in a mid\side configuration with a 414 as side, I had to pull out a little around 200hz, loved the warmth and openness it provided. can't wait to give it a try on some brass. It's surprisingly heavy and feels serious.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely warm sound Since obtaining this microphone, I have used it to mic up two different guitar amplifiers to good effect. Overall, the sound is warm and the bass response becomes more pronounced the closer it is placed to the grille cloth. Positioning the mic around six inches away produces a more balanced and useable sound IMHO. I have yet to try this mic with a Cloudlifter, which I believe should, when used in conjunction with the Fat Head II, yield a better, hotter signal.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mic! Does a really good job at capturing the guitar tones you hear from the amp. With a little EQ you can make it sound like the room if thats what you are after.
