A versatile budget priced larger diaphragm mic for the home studio owner.
The CAD GXL2200BP Cardioid 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 GXL2200 is inspired cosmetically, mechanically, and electrically by early generations of European masters. It is a good well-rounded general purpose mic for applications in the home studio, and is priced for the budget minded home studio owner. Features include (but are not limited to) an internal hi-pass filter. Elastic shock mount and protective pouch are included. P48 (48V) phantom power is required.
Applications: studio vocals, voice-over, choir, acoustic instrument, strings, piano, cymbals/overheads.
