We do a retro-soul act, and I thought this would look great for our frontman, but when we actually used in at a gig it was pretty bad. Not that the quality of the mic is terrible, but it picks up EVERY bump within 3 feet on the stage around it... so if your group stands rock-solid still and you don't touch it, it's fine. But if you touch the mic, or the stand, or step near the stand, or someone else steps near the stand, fuggedaboudit. I hate to trash this mic as it does deliver on looks, and I had hoped the 'boom' I read about in other reviews could be overcome by a low-cut on the board, but no dice. This mic is a nightmare onstage.

Own a few Betas and sm 5 dont use them to much anymore love these mikes Went into it with the mind set that this wasnt going to be a very good mic as i have a few other Nady mics that dollar for dollar dont live up to what i thought they would be (ribbons) That being said i bought one of the pcm 200 beauty and havent regreted it since the mike totaly kicks ass The patern is amazing the sound is also amazing the response is fantastic and they look so cool, Most folks love the look i did so much i now own 5 of them they rock so if you dont want to spend the money on a sure capsul these are the way to rock

Noisy little bugger

By EarGuy

from Salem, OR

Comments about Nady PCM-200 Classic Dynamic Mic:

I bought four of these PCM 200 mics for a theater group for a Christmas play that is read as a live radio show. Right off the bat it picked up every footstep even with a carpet covered stage. Every time anyone touched the microphone or the stand, the mic responds with a loud bassy boom sound. That problem remained even after cutting the bass drastically in the eq. which I had to do to anyway just to avoid an annoying bass feedback problem. I've tried these mics in two venues with the same results. The mic housing is very noisy. They might sound great with a loud band to cover up the inherent boominess of the mic, or for placement in front of a guitar cabinet, but for a speaking voice it is not quiet enough to produce a quality sound.

Not all it's cracked up to be

By pearly_sweetcakes

from Northwest Ohio

Comments about Nady PCM-200 Classic Dynamic Mic:

I got this mic because I liked the look of it. I thought it would have a good sound - and it does - WAYYY to sensitive. I first tried it at an outdoor gig and this thing picked up every foot step on solid ground. It also picked up everytime I touched the mic stand. Not too mention the feedback issues and the trouble getting it dialed in. Don't think that it's a good deal - they have some work to do on this model before it's ready for real hard-working use. I think it'd make a great mic for someone who wants to set it up, never move it or touch it again and record, as long as they never say "s"'s.

Not what I was looking for:

By Strats Rock!

from Little Rock, AR

Comments about Nady PCM-200 Classic Dynamic Mic:

This mic does look cool, but that's about where the good stops. It really does sound "vintage", so beware if you're looking for a clear vocal sound for a band. The sound isn't clear, it's very muffled and, well, "vintage". I would recommend getting a Sure sm57 or 58 instead if you're looking for quality, clear, realistic vocals. The looks are what sold me on this, don't get taken like I did. This thing is also very quite (it doesn't pick anything up very well) and the shape, though it looks awesome, is very akward for actual usage. There's a reason they don't make many mics that shape anymore. Not worth the money for most people, unless you want to sound like a 50s recording. Bottom line: pass this up and go for function over form.

Yeah

By underscore_jeff

from Arizona

Comments about Nady PCM-200 Classic Dynamic Mic:

First of all, this mic looks great. second, It's great for vocals. I've even used this mic for recording vocals, acoustic guitars, and even drums. It does have a problem with feedback, I think it's because it's an open mic and the sound can get in from all sides. Overall it's a great mic. You can't go wrong with Nady.

Great mic, but beware the switch

By Bluejay

from Da Nort' Woods

Comments about Nady PCM-200 Classic Dynamic Mic:

This Nady PCM-200 Classic Dynamic Mic is a great looking and sounding mike. Has a lot of punch, and the price sure beats other "classic" looking mikes. But apparently Nady has a problem in quality control when it comes to the "silent" on-off switch that it touts in the features list. My first PCM-200 works fine and the switch is truly silent. But I'm about to return my third (and last) attempt to get another -- all three subsequent units produce a very, very loud "POP" turning on or off, enough to worry me over the effect it might have on my PA speakers. Also, the first of this flawed trio was significantly lower powered than my initial unit. I'm bummed that I can't seem to get a pair of these that live up to the promised features. May be a bad production run, but someone at Nady should have caught this flaw.

Cool looking but that's about it

By Churchof1000

from North Braddock, PA

Comments about Nady PCM-200 Classic Dynamic Mic:

I'm in a gothabilly band, so I thought the retro look of this mic would be perfect for our band.I can't complain about the sound. It does sound clear, with little or no noise. But it feeds back like crazy. It says it has a cardiod pickup pattern, but it picks up everything in the room. The other instruments bleed through badly. I can see why the Shure 55SH costs about 3 times as much.

Decent mic.

By Levi Kitchen-v4U6h

from Kilgore, TX

Comments about Nady PCM-200 Classic Dynamic Mic:

I was a little dissapointed with the way this mic sounded straight out of the box. I know it's an unfair comparison, but compared to my Sennheiser mics, this one just didn't cut it on sound. The look is killer, but it doesn't give you the low frequency response that I was hoping for. It still has a decent classic sound, what should I have expected? Anyway, still a decent mic. I'm really enjoying the look of it, and it's built very sturdy. One great thing about this mic is that all my other mics shock me because we can't ground our system out. We live in a old crummy house with our band, and we have bad wiring, but THIS mic doesn't shock at all...very nice aspect. Listen to Johnny Empire.
