Product Description

The Cascade Knuckle Head Short Ribbon Microphone with Lundahl Transformer is a passive ribbon microphone that combines the acoustic components of the successful Fat Head ribbon microphone with a shockmounted headbasket design reminiscent of early broadcast microphones.

The ribbon motor uses Neodymium magnets surrounding a 2.2-micron corrugated aluminum ribbon measuring 5x45 millimeters. The ribbon is mounted symmetrically within the magnetic gap, making the Knuckle Head suitable as the ‘mid’ microphone in a MS setup - the front and back of the microphone should produce the same sound.

The ribbon motor and headbasket are suspended within a 6-inch diameter metal hoop by eight springs. The output transformer is located within the cylindrical shaft below the shockmount hoop.

Cascade Knuckle Head Short Ribbon Microphone Includes:

  • Knuckle Head ribbon microphone with Lundahl LL2912 Transformer
  • Aluminum case
  • Premium adjustable mounting clip
  • Micro-fiber cleaning cloth
  • Specifications and typical measurement report

Your general opinion of this product.
This mic gives the most realistic representation of the amp sound that I've been able to record so far. I'm VERY impressed. I've been used to hearing the thinner mics for so long that I had to adjust to hearing those more lush sounds, but that didn't take long! I now understand why ribbon mics have such a legendary place throughout recording history!
