Cascade X-15 noisy compared to other ribbons?

I re- ribboned my Fathead and my Gomez with lundahl trannies with some very thin aluminum I got from Austin ribbon mics (less than 1 micron not easy) and they both have lots more gain and highs. Total transformation into very good sounding mics! The old ribbons were much thicker and sagging.
