What We Think

The M179 is a great all purpose mic. I like to refer to them as the SM57s of Condenser Mics. It has a clean and neutral sound that makes them great on any sound source. It's fantastic on drum overheads, one of the main applications I use them on. The M179's are priced so right using them for toms is a no-brainer (see our FEA multi-packs), and they sound good on many vocals, guitar cabs, (great on) acoustic instruments - everyone should own a pair! The completely variable pattern is a strong attribute as well. My pair is on every recording session I do.

Awesome all around condenser February 6, 2016
Reviewer: Andrew S from Dumont, NJ United States  
Bought these mainly for use on toms because of some videos that I had heard on YouTube and they truly rock on toms. I like them more then the usual studio go-to md421s. These are also great on guitar cabs and as ambient microphones for whatever. Haven't had a chance to use them on vocals yet but in a pinch I'm sure they would sound fine.

CAD M179 first use June 10, 2015
Reviewer: Andrew Plaisted from Malden, MA United States  
I'd heard about the versatility of the M179's and in particular I was attracted to the idea of using them as tom microphones, as an alternative to my Sennheiser 421's. I have not yet had an opportunity to try them on toms yet, but I did put a pair in cardioid over a vibraphone and another in omni as a mono room microphone with excellent results on all of it. I'm pleased so far and look forward to trying them on other instruments... including toms. I don't think my rating will go down from "good," but it could go up to "excellent" as I use them more.

worth every penny February 27, 2015
Reviewer: Michael Meeks from Chesapeake, VA United States  
I now have six of these. Toms with almost zero bleed? Check. Recorderman style overheads? Check. Great workhorse? Check. You WILL put these to good use.

CAD M179 3-Pack March 18, 2014
Reviewer: Timothy Cronin from Princeton, NJ  
Kudos to Front End Audio for a job well done on my recent purchase. I have an really nice acoustic drum array and was very impressed with the CAD M179 (and 177) for tom usage during tests. Thinking ahead, Front End bundled three M179s together and included mic cables and free shipping. Quick and first-class.
