CAD e60 Microphone

The CAD e60 Microphone is an externally biased cardioid condenser microphone designed to capture the sound with unprecedented detail. Sophisticated electronics and a precise gold sputtered capsule provide clarity and incredible versatility.

The CAD e60 Microphone is equipped with a standard 5/8x27 threaded swivel adaptor which fits most microphone stands. Adaptors are widely available in order to make the CAD e60 Microphone fit smaller thread mic stands.

The CAD e60 Microphone is designed specifically for use as an instrument microphone for overheads, hi-hats and pianos. The CAD e60 Microphone is great for virtually all acoustic, wind, and amplified instruments. One of the most popular uses for the CAD e60 Microphone is in miking drum sets, ideally in an overhead type configuration. The CAD e60 Microphone also excels at miking stringed instruments such as acoustic guitars.

The CAD e60 Microphone has a four position roll-off which allows for extended “tuning” of the frequency response at the microphone for your particular application. The CAD e60 Microphone is also equipped with a -10dB pad switch to reduce the output level of the microphone by 10dB accordingly. If your board is “clipping” or distorting when using the CAD e60 Microphone, try switching the pad switch to the -10dB position. Alternatively, if your are not getting enough signal from the microphone, switch the pad switch to the 0dB position.

The CAD e60 Microphone uses a true condenser microphone element. As with any studio condenser microphone, special care should be taken to keep the microphone clean and dry. It is highly recommended the CAD e60 Microphone be stored in its included vinyl pouch in a cool, dry environment to ensure long life of the capsule when not in use.

If the CAD e60 Microphone is used in a vocal application, it is very important to use a fabric “pop” filter such as a CAD EPF-15A positioned between the user and the microphone. Pop filters do not adversely effect the performance of the microphone in any way.
