CAD E100S Microphone Details

Engineered and built in the USA, the new CAD E100S large diaphragm supercardioid condenser has the lowest noise floor in its class (3.7 dBA) and the smooth, vintage tone and robust low end CAD is known for.

The nickel plated 1 inch capsule delivers accurate phasing on instruments, and a full rich vocal tone, accentuated by the extended low frequency response.

From vocals to percussion, acoustic instruments and everything in between, the CAD Equitek E100S will prove to be one of the most versatile tools in your microphone locker, in the studio or on stage.

What We Think - CAD E100S Review

The CAD E100S is a truly fantastic multi-purpose microphone. Put one up when you don't have time to fiddle and putz around trying out a ton of different mics and you should get a sound that is at the very least better than just usable. The nice and smooth, yet lifted top-end adds a refined clarity to the recorded sound. So, you're not going to need to add highs with an EQ, but you're also not going to have to take them away since there is nothing harsh or overbearing with this mic. The super-cardioid pattern helps to reject potentially unwanted room noise and keeps the mic on point. It's a winner for acoustic guitar, electric guitar, drums, percussion, bass cabinets, and pretty much whatever you can throw at it - it wins. CAD has produced yet another fantastic microphone!
