From the Manufacturer
GXL2200 Cardioid Condenser Microphone
The GXL2200 condenser mic from CAD Audio is inspired cosmetically, mechanically, and electrically by early generations of European masters. Features include (but are not limited to) an internal hi-pass filter. An elastic shock mount and protective pouch are included. P48 (48V) phantom power is required.
Condenser-Style Microphone for Instrument Recording
The CAD Audio GXL2200 condenser microphone consists of a thin conductive membrane stretched very close to a stationary plate. High voltage is applied between the membrane and the plate. As the membrane vibrates, electrons move. These moving electrons are sensed as voltage. This voltage can be strengthened (but not necessarily increased) by silicon.
The cardioid polar pattern is ideal for recording both vocals and instruments, particularly for isolated tracks, but it also works well for live applications. Use condenser mics to get a clear directional recording of studio vocals, voice-over work, choirs, acoustic instruments, strings, piano, and cymbals/overheads.
Included Shock Mount and Carrying Pouch
The GXL2200 comes complete with an elastic shock mount and a protective carrying pouch for easy transport and set up. (A mic stand is not included.)

I have recently begun dabbling in recording and have tried three different microphones up to the $500 price range. After lots of research and reading product reviews, I decided to give the CAD GXL2200 a try. I've been using it mainly for vocals, but also for acoustic instruments. I am completely amazed by the quality of this microphone. The range, clarity and warmth of this mic is perfect for vocals, whether for song production or for live radio, but is absolutely amazing for acoustic instruments. At this price, I wouldn't expect this quality, but I would rate this at least comparable to a $500 microphone.
Anyway, we needed some variety hubby said, we needed a "collection" for the many different voice types we have in studio as guest hosts and show guests come and go all the time.
Well, I suggested he go with the CAD GXL 3000's as they certainly in my opinion are one of the best out there. Well, hubby with all his "tech specs" and lingo said that the response from these 2200's are VERY close to the 990's
Well, against my wishes purchased these as well as the 3000's and let me tell you, they are excellent. VERY close to the 990's but I feel there is more of a high end punch with these and it's a very good mic.
Construction is solid, with a small but very good shockmount. Excellent quality finish applied to the outer casing for a nice look and I'm sure a long life.
The sound is as I said crisp, clear with very nice highs and mids.
When I tested, we ran through just our mixer, with no compression of effects and a small amount of EQ as we run our shows. All in all a very nice addition to our studio collection.
The ONLY con I have was the packaging. Just a thin cardstock box with nothing more than small plastic airbags around it for shipping. It does come with a vinyl zip case for the mic itself, but nothing for the shockmount. Not a huge issue, but when compared with the MXL 990 that comes with a solid plastic road case, heavy foam insulation and a very nice quality presentation along with the useability of professional grade portability, it's a bit weak.
Other than packaging, this is a solid studio condenser for voice and we highly recommend it!
bargain price[less than $60.] mic is good build quality & the shock mount is ok 4 the price.
mic easily opened 2 change base tilt, the push button is clearly labeled & works smoothly.
works well plugged directly in2 zoom R16 digital recorder phantom powered mic input.
works well w/innogear 48volt phantom power supply jacked in2 zoom R6 non phantom powered mic inputs.
works well w/cad pop filter
it sounds [2 me] like it should given the published frequency response.
the included mic description & frequency response [ well printed on coated poster stock ] is clear & gives u the info u need 2 use & operate the mic & is presented in the standard format established by the importers of the primo german makers like akg ,beyer or sennheiser, 40+ yrs ago. there is no poorly translated/presented chinese 2 english on or in the box it came in.
cad is american based mic manufacturer w/a large line of american made mics, making this mic in china so price is quite low & qc seems good.
shock-mount needs washers in the angle adjustment joint so it can b adjusted smoothly, tightened firmly & locked in position.
shock-mount mic clamp needs thicker felt so grip on mic body is secure enuf 2 hang mic upsidedown in overhead applications.
box it comes in is very thin w/no foam or bubble pack. it is not heavy enuf 2 use 4 storage like the heavyweight box that samson mics come in [& samson gives u a zipper closed fitted case that is very nice].
it wasn't free[ ! ].
