From the Manufacturer
GXL3000 Multi-pattern Condenser Microphone
Borne of precious metal and pure electricity. Tune two golden membranes intimately across polished bass and inject electrons with oscillatory high tension. Drive emotion across copper and iron by field-effect detection. Wrap it in a Faraday cage to conceive the GXL3000 Multi-Pattern Microphone from CAD Audio. Live all three polar patterns--cardioid, figure-of-eight, and omnidirectional--as you align space and tone. Features include a hi-pass filter and attenuator. An elastic shock mount and protective pouch are included. P48 (48V) phantom power is required.
Switch Between Three Polar Patterns for Versatile Recording
Use the built-in switch on the GXL3000 microphone to switch between three different kinds of polar patterns for versatile recording applications. Use a cardioid pattern for instrument and vocal recording, a figure-of-eight pattern for recording front and rear sounds while blocking off-axis noise, or an omnidirectional pattern for field recording.
This makes the GXL3000 the ideal choice for recording everything from studio vocals and voice-overs to choirs, acoustic instruments, guitar cabinets, bass cabinets, piano, and more.
Included Shock Mount and Carrying Pouch
The GXL3000 comes complete with an elastic shock mount and a protective carrying pouch for easy transport and set up. (A mic stand is not included.)

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!
This mic is amazing, no pops or cracking sound. My friend told me my voice was crystal clear. I have not tried to test the distance, but, I did have my girlfriend come in the room, and my friends heard the door open and our conversation. However, the sensitivity can be increased and decreased through a pc operating system. Overall, the sound quality is amazing. I've heard my voice played back through videos I record on my pc and it's clear, and awesome. SO glad I chose to get a separate mic. For the price, can't beat it.
The shock that comes with the mic is also nice, and made of metal.
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.
