CAD GXL1200BP Small-Diaphragm Cardioid Condenser Microphone

No longer available at zZounds
At this price, you'll want at least two! Great on drum overheads or hi-hat, this small-diaphragm condenser has a transformerless design to reduce distortion.
Finished in lustrous black pearl chrome, the compact and durable CAD GXL1200BP condenser is known for its open, transparent sound. Its transformerless design reduces distortion and optimizes low-end response. A uniform cardioid pattern controls feedback. The CAD GXL1200BP's small size, accuracy, and high SPL capability, make it ideal for micing overheads, high hats, cymbals, and stringed instruments. A mic clip, vinyl pouch and a polishing cloth included.

"good for the price"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Unusual for a musician I am not so good at bringing home the money so... This is a low end microphone but it works as advertised. I have no idea what high end mics of this type do to justify the price but it's done what I wanted it to - record at my house my saxophone and flute how I think they were sounding into my DAW, The mic holder for a stand was cheap but hey, for $50 at ZZounds.... The mic itself seems well made and looks good. I am satisfied. It requires phantom power as goes with a condenser mic.
