I have used these condensers as everything from drum overheads for rock n roll to opera chorus applications and they have performed as well as many other mics that cost AT LEAST 4x's as much. The noise floor is equal to that of many other higher priced models and the overall response and polar pattern is warm and true.

Do not use it for vocals or acoustic guitar. Way Way Way too bright. Using it to mic an amp or drums yeah..not so bad. But the low end it really lacks. Even on a tube preamp..no good. Really...its an ok studio budget mic. But for vocals and acoustic..go with an MXL at the same price.

I purchased this mic for my talk box because of its size. When I received it, it was so clear and very hot at low volume/gain, I purchased a 2nd to use as my vocal mic.

      Wow! What a great Mic!!!

      By Ray Phillips

      from Decatur, Alabama

      Comments about Nady CM-88 Condenser Microphone:

      I have accumulated 10 of these mics for live use and in the studio. I have never had any trouble with any of them. The quality is superb!! I use 7 CM-88's to record a large concert band. When I return to the studio for mix-down, I can do my EQ and anything else with each channel with no noise, vibrations or any problems. If you have a live recording business, you need to stock up on this great mic at a great price!!!!!

      Nady CM88's

      By SABINO LAGATTOLLA

      from Hudson, MA

      Comments about Nady CM-88 Condenser Microphone:

      I use 2 of these as overheads for my drum set. I've got 11 cymbals, plus 2 separate high hats. I don't mic my hats because these mics do a fantastic job of picking up all my bronze. For cheap money, this condenser can't be beat. I actually have these mic's at a lower level than the rest of my mics. That's how hot they are. Love 'em.

      a little different

      By aaron myers

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Nady CM-88 Condenser Microphone:

      a strange thing about this mic. the polar pattern is very similar to an sm 57. I've used it to mic overheads but its not the best. butt for the bottom of a snare its great and its beautifull on acoustic guitars. it was also the only mic to capture my old ampeg b25b 2x15 cab the way it sounds in the room

      Good for bands wanting to record

      By Chuck

      from Aurora,CO

      Comments about Nady CM-88 Condenser Microphone:

      I bought this mic because I needed a cheap microphone for drum tracks and guitar tracks. It worked out really well. The only problem I had with the microphone was feedback. you have to keep it exactly parallel to the monitor otherwise you get feedback, unless your gain on the board is turned down so low you can't hear it. But overall I'd definitely recommend this to any artist looking to record a demo for press packages, etc.

      Awesome!!!!

      By Will Geronimo

      from Chicago, IL

      Comments about Nady CM-88 Condenser Microphone:

      These mics are awesome! I own 2 of them and the sound is just tight as overheads on the drums. The tom-tom sounds are awesome, and they just do one hell of a job for capturing the entire kit! The only thing with these versus my MXL 991 pencil's, is that you have to play with the TRIM levels to achieve that awesome sound, not the YOU have to crank them or anything, you just have to adjust them accordingly. Other than that you do get a great sound when recording drums and using them as overheads! Awesome product and awesome price!!!!

      Good condenser for live sound

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Nady CM-88 Condenser Microphone:

      This is a good little microphone (albeit a little cheap) but the pattern and clarity of sound are second to only really expensive mics that I have used in the past. I use these for micing choirs and drums and they sound really good a prevent feedback. if you are a sound engineer on a budget you should look into these!
