These microphones sound amazing. I researched ribbon microphones for several months before deciding on these. The price to quality ratio is very high. They are passive ribbons with somewhat low output. I pair them with the Cloudlifter CL-2 mic activator dumpimping into two Presonus Tube Pre V2 tube preamps. The warmth and detail of the sound on vocals and acoustic guitars is stunning. I look forward to using these exquisite mics more in the next several months on drums and electric guitar cabinets. Also, the included shock mounts and Stereo mounting bar with instructions on the Blumlein stereo miking technique and a great added value. This adds a great 260 3D sound to my recordings. Kudos Cascade.
