Buddy was one of our first users. Here's what Buddy has to say about Cascade Ribbon Microphones - "I use my Cascade Microphones almost every day, in the studio and live. I love the tone they produce in combination with my amps. Cascade Microphones are one of the best values in pro audio today."
"The first time I played my 1937 Gibson Mastertone flathead
banjo through the CASCADE FAT HEAD Ribbon microphone, I relaxed instantly -
because I could tell it was capturing my sound accurately - and that is
something that very rarely happens. I really love the sound of my banjo through
Cascade Ribbon Microphones are Steely Dan's choice when playing live. Their tours in 2011/2012 featured 6 Cascade FAT HEAD II microphones on their guitar amps. Charles Martinez (Steely Dan's sound person)
selected Cascade Ribbon's because they do the best job of capturing the natural tone Steely Dan is known for. Photos are courtesy of Joshua Timmermans (The Noble Visions)

"I just finished a few days of tracking on a
project with modern jazz drummer Dave King, most widely known for
his work as a member of the avant-garde trio The Bad Plus. For
Dave's kit I used a four-microphone setup, of which two- the
overheads- were Cascade Active/Passive Fatheads. They worked
perfectly for this application and gave us exactly what we needed-
a good sonic image of the kit with no hype or brittle top end,
enough lows to cover the toms well, and enough sensitivity to
pickup all the detail on the snare and cymbals. Dave was loving
the way the drums were sounding, and was impressed with the
performance of the A/P Fatheads. I've attached some MP3s of the
full four-mic kit as well as just the overheads."
