Cascade Microphones Fat Head BE

The Cascade Head BE boasts a symmetrical ribbon design with the aluminum membrane occupying the center position from back to front. This positioning results in a balanced signal on each side of the ribbon architecture. This design works exceptionally well in live situations and in mid-side or Blumlein recording applications. 

The microphone works exceptionally well alongside guitar cabinets, drum over-heads, as well as with vocals, pianos, horns, strings, and much more. Note that this microphone does not include an aluminum box, wooden case, or shock mount, resulting in a lower price. The Fat Head BE does include a stand clip and vinyl carrying pouch.
