EV Cardinal

By Ben

Comments about Electro-Voice Cardinal Condenser Microphone:

I bought this mic a little over a year ago and I'm really happy with it. I use it for my drum overhead; I have only have one condenser mic and by itself I got pretty good drum tracks. I have also used it to record bass and it gets the low end rather well Could probably get an equally nice mic for cheaper... only regret. awesome though

Surprisingly Good on Acoustic

By TheScientist

Comments about Electro-Voice Cardinal Condenser Microphone:

I bought this mic on a bit of a whim. I wanted to add something unique to my collection and I didn't really have high expectations. So, after bringing it home, I set up a "Mic Shootout." I took 4 of my mics, set up a stand, plugged in a Universal Audio M610 preamp, and tested them all using a Taylor acoustic. (The other mics were ... Neumann TLM 103, Shure SM57, BLUE Mouse, and an Audio Technica AT2020). I was REALLY surprised at how well this mic does on acoustic guitars. It pretty much beat the pack. You should know, though, it has a strange frequency response with a few peaks above 1K. This added a nice breath to the acoustic. It's also got a decent roll off below about 150 hertz. It's proximity effect was pretty mild and I could place it almost anywhere around the guitar and get a good sound. I can't really recommend it on vocals, it's definitely not a flat response mic, but on acoustic guitar or probably any other acoustic stringed instrument it will do a good job. If you buy, I recommend placing it about 8 to 10 inches from the 14th fret. That's where the sweet spot was for me (not too much body, not too much string) What a nice, affordable mic to add to my collection - really happy with it!!!!

Outstanding mic

By John

from bothell, wa

Comments about Electro-Voice Cardinal Condenser Microphone:

I've owned this mic for eight years and use it both personally (podcasting, video dubbing) and professionally - the last three as a high school sports arena announcer. I love the tonal quality and range of this mic. I have a deep baritone voice and this mic reproduces voice and instrument inflections and undertones w/o sounding tinny or hollow. Regardless of your broadcasting or recording needs, this could very well be the last mic you buy - it's that good.
