The Cascade Microphones X15 Short Ribbon Microphone houses two separate matched ribbon motors that are positioned one above the other. The elements are offset 90 degrees and are configured in the Blumlein setup. Stereo separation is superb and off-axis coloration is minimal. Add in the excellent sensitivity and frequency response range the X15 is ready for the big leagues.
Legendary symmetrical ribbon design is incorporated into the X15
Unlike most ribbon motors designed today with an offset ribbon element the new Cascade X15 houses two hand-tuned ribbon elements that incorporate the legendary symmetrical ribbon design. This design offers a true figure 8 pattern. The corrugated aluminum membrane itself is positioned in the center from front to back, thus producing a balanced audio input signal to both sides of the ribbon assembly. A 5-pin cable is included, the cable connects to a metal splitter box where two separate XLR connectors give access the to upper and lower ribbon motors.
