CAD TSM411 Microphone
The CAD TSM411 Microphone is a supercardioid, moving-coil dynamic microphone specifically designed for the capture and reinforcement of acoustic percussive instruments. The dual-point, polymer, capsule-suspension system and the supercardioid polar pattern provide vibration isolation and off-axis rejection crucial for on-stage clarity.
The CAD TSM411 Microphone is a percussion / general purpose application microphone. The CAD TSM411 incorporates an all new "duo-point" suspension. This technology provides remarkable shock isolation and ballistic stability, which is very important for successful reproduction of sound sources originating from percussion instruments such as tom toms, snares, cymbals, conga's, guitar and keyboard amps, stacks, and other similar applications.
Neodymium magnetics allow reduced coil mass for transient agility and impedance reduction. Although designed with percussion in mind, excellent results are also obtained when used on most electrical and acoustical instruments. The die-cast metal body and hardened protective steel screen provide rugged durability.

I've owned this mic for several years now. It is useful, but not as useful as the slightly higher priced Shure SM57, which is a standard.
For the price it is a good deal. A solid mic and a really cool clip (rubber isolated kind which other straight -shaft mics may fit in to also). Once again, we all have a budget, and if it fits yours, make it work. The sound is a bit thin, but useful. What's nice is the size, and if toms are the use, they sound better for that than on guitars to my ear.
