X-15  STEREO RIBBON MICROPHONE

 

 

Choose Transformer Option

The X-15 Stereo ribbon microphone houses two separate matched ribbon motors that are positioned one above the other. The elements are offset 90 degrees and are configured in the Blumlein setup. Stereo separation is superb and off-axis coloration is minimal. Add in the excellent sensitivity and frequency response range the X-15  will produce an audio that is second to none.

 

The fit and finish are of top quality and includes a premium suspension shockmount, thick padded leatherette pouch and an upgraded aluminum case. Package also includes a 20ft. 5-Pin XLR cable that connects directly to a splitter cable that Y's to two 3-PIN MALE XLR connectors for  connection to outboard gear.

 

Legendary symmetrical ribbon design is incorporated into the X-15

 

Unlike most ribbon motors designed today with an offset ribbon element the new Cascade X-15 houses two hand-tuned ribbon elements that incorporate the legendary symmetrical ribbon design. This design offers a true figure 8 pattern. The corrugated aluminum membrane itself is positioned in the center from front to back, thus producing a balanced audio input signal to both sides of the ribbon assembly.

 

The album was recorded at Coyote Road Studio in

Santa Barbara. Artist list includes- Jim Connolly, Alastair Greene,Tariqh Akoni and Sean McCue.
