I do a lot of recording at my local college (Symphonic & Jazz Bands) and always prefer to use a pair of these. I had one go out and replaced it with one from Front End Audio and it works great! :)
Is this a Neumann, no. Is it about the best 1st mic you can buy for the money, a resounding YES! This was my 1st mic I bought when I decided to build a little DAW based studio at home years ago. The good - it sounds nice & clear and is built like a tank. The bad - self-noise is a little high (not too bad though) & the highs are a little hyped like a lot of the inexspensive overseas made mics (can be fixed with a little subractive Q hardware or plug-in). If all you've got is 60-65 bucks to spend at Front End Audio on a Large Diaphragm Condenser, I guarantee you won't get better than the CAD GXL2200 for the price.
