Premier Silver Anodized Finish
Open sound...no modification required.
Now offers improved sensitivity and added acoustic treatment within the body (prevents resonating low frequencies)
The Cascade Victor ribbon microphone features a 2 7/16" long ribbon
of aluminum suspended in the field of a strong permanent magnet. When
the ribbon is exposed to sound it vibrates within the magnetic field
and a tiny current is induced in the ribbon. This current is amplified
to produce sound. What makes ribbon microphones so incredibly sensitive
and accurate is that the signal comes directly from the material that
senses the sound; nothing is lost in translation. The result is the
most intimate, warm, and articulate sound produced by any type of
microphone. Ribbon microphones are an excellent choice for recording
guitar cabinets, drum overheads and vocals.

Dear Folks at Cascade:
Just a few notes to let you know how much I love your Victor ribbon Microphone.
As a musician who has been in the game for nearly 30 years I must
say I am simply stunned at the quality of your product! I was honestly
expecting to be totally disappointed when I opened the box.
First the packing and shipping was done very well and that was just
a hint of things to come. The aluminum case is nicely fitted and seems
to have been built for a lifetime of use. Knowing the fragile nature of
the ribbon element this is wisely done. It fits very securely in its
cozy padded bag. The fit and finish is much better than I would have
thought possible at this price!
The first time I plugged it into my small tube pre-amp and put on my
Sennheiser headphones I was instantly transported back in time, the
silky smooth full natural sound made me feel Frank, Bing or Dean would
have been right at home singing through this microphone.
I could not only hear my small home studio room but I could actually
feel it!! I found myself moving about testing different areas and
corners listening to the different effect it had on my voice. It brings
a full warmth to digital tracks, I like the fact it does not leave that
false thin high end a lot of cheap condensers have.
I think these early serial numbers like mine may one day be a very
desired collectors item! Mine is to me already, look for my order for
your other products soon..I don't know how I could be happier.
You might say..... I'm a fan.
