Superb Microphone and a equally superb company
on November 27, 2010
I bought two of these a number of years ago and use it to record instruments (clarinet, saxophone etc.) as well as vocals. The sound is warm, transparent, and very life-like. I've also used them for recording voice-over for a documentary. They've held up very well and I'm very happy with how well they work for me.
When these microphones are positioned fairly close to the speakers (with the microphone facing away from the speakers) the directional sensitivity (cardioid pickup pattern) is such that there is no feedback at all. Like most condenser microphones these requires 48v standard "phantom power".
After a few years the shock-mount rubber bands deteriorated and I e-mailed CAD customer support to inquire about purchasing replacements, but to my surprise, they simply mailed me a double set of replacements at no charge right away.
Now, is this any way to run a company ???
You bet it is, because they've made a friend and booster for life.
In summary, these microphones will let you make superb recordings of a large variety of musical instruments including vocals.
