This Cadenza Vintage Ribbon Microphone was manufactured in the 1950's in England. It is a sturdy, retro appearing mike. The ribbon is reported to be longer than other similar microphones of the era and a "new conception of magnet and ribbon arrangement" resulted in superior frequency response and sensitivity.  The ribbon is original (I believe) and is advertized as 1 micron in thickness.  I've read that this mike is "a secret weapon for guitar cabs". My experience has been limited to acoustic guitar and voice for which I have been pleased.

    "A new conception of ribbon magnet arrangement. The ribbon itself is 4 times the area usually employed thus providing increased sensitivity."


The condition of the mike is good with some minor surface wear and scratches. It comes with it's original cable and shock-mount. The cable is a 1/4 inch male and as such is un-balanced. I do not have a case for this nor is there a stand included.
