Overview

It's an entry-level priced multi-pattern condenser mic that sounds as good on vocals and instruments as mics costing seven times as much. It does particularly well on acoustic piano. 3 polar patterns allow close, ambient, and M/S stereo miking. Slight bumps at 6 and 12kHz makes for a detailed and exciting sound.

The GXL3000 Pro Studio is a large diameter, multi-pattern, condenser microphone. High sensitivity and low distortion make the GXL3000 an ideal mic for recording, broadcast, and sound reinforcement, including vocal and instrument applications. The capsule in the CAD GXL3000 features a 1" gold vapor deposited diaphragm.

The GXL3000 requires standard 48 Volt phantom power and comes with a suspension shock mount. Each GXL3000 microphone is audio tested and inspected under the direction of CAD Professional Microphones, offering an exceptional level of value.

Best for the Price

By 

from Canton, MI

Comments about CAD GXL3000 Pro Studio Microphone:

Pretty Flat Response. Very smooth. Great for vocals, micing amps, overheads, and micing pianos. Also great for vocalists with strong "S"s as it is not too sensitive. I bought a pair a few weeks ago. There isn't another mic out there for this price with this quality that comes with a shock mount. Buy this mic.
