Spine-tingling Sound


In the tradition of the world's best (and most expensive) vintage vocal microphones, The Cactus delivers a commanding, intimate presence and larger-than-life detail. The amplifier design is a transformer-balanced single vacuum tube sub-miniature pentode in a triode mode, along with the highest quality hand-selected electronic components to insure low noise and minimal distortion. At a distance, The Cactus delivers every nuance in the room, with finely focused resolution and clear, musical frequency response to the extremes of the audible spectrum. Up close, with its detailed highs and smooth midrange, the nine-pattern Cactus excels at delivering a vocal or solo track right to the front of the mix where it belongs.

  • Nine-pattern condenser - cardioid, omnidirectional, figure-8 with variable settings in between
