Product Description

Engineered and built in the USA, the E100S large-diaphragm supercardioid condenser has the lowest noise floor in its class (3.7 dBA) and the smooth, vintage tone and robust low end CAD is known for. The bootstrapped, full differential Quadra-FET (TM) front end delivers high sensitivity and low distortion, plus CAD's proprietary circuitry ensures the highest performance.

The nickel-plated 1-inch capsule delivers accurate phasing on instruments, and a full rich vocal tone, accentuated by the extended low frequency response. Features include an 80Hz hi-pass filter and a 10dB pad. From vocals to percussion, acoustic instruments and everything in between, the CAD Equitek E100S will prove to be one of the most versatile tools in your microphone locker, in the studio or on stage. Vintage woodgrain cherry case and stealth shock mount included. 48V Phantom power is required.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of CAD products.

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (7 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great sounding mic for all occasions."
Sound: Had the Astatic variant, used it as an over head for drums in a worship setting for recording. Sound was so natural and balanced that I only used one for the entire drum set. Feature: Not many features to speak of. The highpass filter was subtle in my opinion but somehow helped flatten out the total sound when I used it as an overhead. Ease of Use: Simple to use. No brainier for anyone who uses mics. Quality: M1 Abrams and this mic have a lot in common. Feels like I could kill a singer with this if thrown. Value: Excellent value for both live sound and recording. I can't think of another mic that works so well with whatever I threw at it. Manufacturer Support: n/a The Wow Factor: I want it as much as I want a 2011 Roush Mustang. In the same color too. Overall: I will get one for my own studio ASAP. I've never been so satisfied with a mic. The drummer, worship leader, and I crooned over how well it performed.

Written by one of our gear experts! "Great addition to any mic collection."
Sound: Sounds awesome! So far I have used this on vocals, acoustic guitar, electric guitar cabs, and for various room mic setups and have yet to be disappointed with the results. I must say it really shines best on vocals providing a nice full up front tone. Feature: Comes in a nice padded hardwood case. Shockmount is high quality but is attached to the microphone which can be cumbersome when trying to find specific placement because it doesn't allow for any rotation. Overall I haven't found this to be too much of an issue. 10dB pad and high pass filter are nice features to have and both work as expected. Ease of Use: Plug it in. Set levels. Press record. Listen to great results. Quality: Build quality is good. Microphone, shockmount, and case all look and feel well designed and built. Value: I would easily compare and in some cases even prefer it to other microphones in my collection that cost twice as much! Manufacturer Support: n/a The Wow Factor: This mic has been a great addition to my mic cabinet. I would recommend it to anyone. Overall: Get one!

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
