Gomez Short Ribbon Microphone
The Cascade Microphones "Gomez" 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. A single layer grille reduces standing wave reflections between the grille and transducer to allow recordings with greater clarity".
The Cascade Microphones "Gomez" 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.
We feel Cascade Microphones has raised the bar with the GOMEZ by combining premium components with a superior finish at an affordable price point that is attractive to both the seasoned studio veteran as well as the home recording enthusiast.
