Cascade Microphones - GOMEZ (Michael Joly Edition) - Short Single Ribbon Microphone w/ Lundahl LL2913 Transformer
Click to enlarge

The new Cascade Microphones "Gomez" Michael Joly Edition ribbon mic uses a short, single-ribbon motor for broad vertical and horizontal pickup free from the off-axis coloration found in dual ribbon mics. The structure of the "Gomez" ribbon motor provides a tailored high frequency response ideal for guitar cab use or vintage-sounding "soft top" vocals. In a new innovation, the ribbon motor is installed in an optimized headbasket - a round, single layer grille designed to offer an open sound with reduced internal standing waves. Michael Joly notes: "While there are many design features that contribute to great microphone performance, part of my success upgrading microphones can be attributed to the use of a single-layer grille. A single layer grille reduces standing wave reflections between the grille and transducer to allow recordings with greater clarity".

The Cascade Microphones "Gomez" Michael Joly Edition features a renowned Lundahl ribbon mic transformer, custom PCB board, high-quality Switchcraft XLR connector and Evidence Audio - LYRIC HG wire with IGL copper. The microphone is packaged in a sturdy and attractive aluminum case with shock mount. It comes with a signed and dated "Certificate of Performance" documenting a multi-step inspection, assembly and performance approval process - including certification of proper ribbon tension.

The GOMEZ is fitted with the Lundahl LL2913 Transformer.

GUITAR:

With the Gomez I have been able to achieve the most breath taking distorted rock guitar sound I have ever heard. It's taken me a lot experimenting, but combining the Gomez with my vintage 421 at 4" from the cab and centered on the cone resulting in breath taking results. The Gomez was run into my Vintech X73i (using the EQ section to tame the low frequency build up from close mic'ing ) and was combined with the signal of my Vintage 421 through a Groove Tubes SuPre to bring out some bite. both mic's were then run into my Drawmer 1968 ME compresser to leave me completely awestruck.


VOCALS:

Holy crap! this mic sounds amazing. Its completely different from my Neumann TLM103, but the combination of the two is stellar! I found this mic is THE perfect mic for backing vocal tracks and my voice. It adds dimension that a Condenser can not give. Excellent for building up the spacial dimension of a vocal mix.


TAMBOURINE:

Would you guess this mic sounds ridiculously good on tambourine? Placed at about 2-3 feet from the tambourine and above it by about a foot or two and pointed down towards the tambourine it sounded like HEAVEN! I've never in my life heard a tambourine sound that good. my only words are "holy crap." Preamp used was my Groove Tubes SuPre. Tambourine sound recorded seemed a bit "vintage" but it was soooo sexy I couldn't help but point it out to everyone that heard the song. Not even a little bit brittle or "cheap" This mic sounds like THE REAL DEAL.


ACOUSTIC GUITAR:

I really wish I had two of these mic's because it sounded "THAT GOOD."
