Product Description

Sonically the same as the standard Fat Head, the Cascade Fat Head II Stereo Ribbon Microphones with Lundahl Transformer.  The Fat Head II uses the same 2.5 micron ribbon as its predecessor, so you can expect the same warm and “fat” sound as before.

Cascade Fat Head II Stereo Ribbon Microphones Includes:
  • Pair of Fat Head II Stereo Microphones with Lundahl LL2913 transformers
  • Aluminum case
  • Blumlein Stereo Adaptor Bar
  • 2 Premium suspension shockmount
We redesigned the Fat Head II with both form factor and durability in mind. Its new brass body helps protect the microphone from stray RF noise and is larger than its predecessor for easier handling. Also incorporated into the new model is a reinforced neck and grill assembly along with upgraded plating on its hardware. It now also offers a gold-plated XLR connector. With these changes, the Fat Head II is more at home than ever in both project and professional studios, as well as live on stage.

Fat Head II Stereo Pairs include an upgraded basket-style shockmount and the Blumlein stereo bar is now silk screened with mounting indicators.

We are now offering the Fat Head II exclusively with a Lundahl LL2913 transformer, which is mounted on a through-hole circuit board. Each microphone is carefully assembled and tested at our headquarters in Olympia, Washington. The Fat Head II remains an excellent choice for guitar cabinets, vocals, horns, strings, drum overheads… we love to use them on just about everything!

Product Review

I purchased the Fathead II mics to mic the low end of my Leslie cabinet as well as the Hammond speaker cabinet. The result is an accurate and warm sound from both. Next....a horn section.

Hard to beat for the money

Product Review

Great results as drum overheads, room mics, trombone, trumpet, electric gtr amplifiers. Cloud lifter brought them to life for quite sources like acoustic guitar. Love them. Using Apollo x pre’s. experimented with all different pres. Apollo’s direct is the cleanest. I use the 610b or Manley Vox box if I want more character. Very warm mics. plenty of ribbon detail.
