Cascade Microphones - KNUCKLE HEAD - Single Short Ribbon Microphone w/ Radian Grill
Click to enlarge

Shown with Black Body / Polished Nickel Grill finish.

The Knuckle Head is a passive ribbon microphone that combines the acoustic components of the successful Fat Head ribbon with a shockmounted headbasket design reminiscent of early broadcast microphones.

The ribbon motor uses Neodymium magnets surrounding a 2.5-micron corrugated aluminum ribbon measuring 5mm x 45mm. The ribbon is mounted symmetrically within the magnetic gap, making the Knuckle Head suitable as the “mid” mic in a MS setup — the front and back of the mic should produce the same sound.

The ribbon motor and headbasket are suspended within a 6-inch diameter metal hoop by eight springs. The output transformer is located within the cylindrical shaft below the shockmount hoop.

The Knuckle Head ships with a micro-fiber cleaning cloth and a mic clip in a padded aluminum flight case. It will be available in either of two finishes, with an optional Lundahl 2912 or Cinemag CM-9888 transformer upgrade.

In addition to the Black Body/Polished Nickel Grill finish, the Knuckle Head offers an antique copper finish that is hand-applied to each individual microphone. By using this method, every Knuckle Head becomes unique with it's own character and is destined to become an old school classic.
