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.
