Product Description

The GXL2400 is a large-diaphragm, fixed cardioid pattern, condenser microphone. High sensitivity and low distortion make this microphone an ideal candidate for recording, broadcast, sound reinforcement including vocal and instrument applications. The capsule in the GXL2400 features a 1 in. gold vapor deposited diaphragm. The GXL2400 comes with a shock mount. The GXL2400 microphones are audio tested and inspected under the direction of CAD Professional Microphones, offering an exceptional level of value.

Point-source transduction, field-effect detection, and pure high voltage. Capture your instrumentation with exacting detail with the GXL1200. Proximity effect is inversely proportional to distance. Play it right this time. Mic clip and protective pouch are included. P48 (48V) phantom power is required.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of CAD products.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (52 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Wow! What a mic."
Sound: I have a Neumann TLM103($1200) and I've A/B'd the CAD GXL2400 against this mic. You can hardly tell the difference, really. I have turned so many people onto this mic I'm surprised CAD can keep up with the demand. It truely is the best mic for the price. Feature: The fact that this mic includes a shockmount all for $79.99 is again, a fabulous value. I attempted to purchase a shockmount for my Neumann it was $250 just for the shockmount. Ease of Use: All you need is phantom power and you're running. You may want a pop filter of some kind since it is sensitive as is most phantom powered large diaphram microphones. Quality: CAD is the one of the best microphone companies in the world. I have several of their mics, much more expensive. Their sound and quality are the best and they stand behind every purchase. Manufacturer Support: As I just mentioned CAD support is the best. The Wow Factor: This is a very stylish mic. Small but powerful! Overall: What can I say that I haven't already...this is one great purchase for the dollar.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "LOVE THIS MIC! My 1st studio condenser, but the sound is fantastic!"
Overall: Boy, I'm not sure where to start. This is my 1st studio condenser, but it makes my studio vocals so much clearer than the 'live' performance mics I have always used. For, what I paid, I would pay more after trying this out and getting wonderful results. I am a vocalist on LimeBooth.com under the user name, JJtheKJ, so feel free to check out how this mic sounds on some of my cover tunes. Where you can see the mic in the videos, that's how you'll know that's what I used in the making of the vocals. Hearing is better than reading. If you don't have a bunch of money, this would be a great mic to start out with, and for most, unless you are big star, should be good enough to hold you for a long time.
Style of Music: too many too list, but primarily country, pop, and rock

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.
