    Perhaps the most versatile mic you'll ever own.

    The CAD Equitek e100 Condenser Microphone is a redesign of the popular E100. The Equitek e100 is a high-sensitivity supercardioid condenser mic that excels for live applications, capturing the subtleties of choirs, pianos, and stringed instruments, and performing equally well in high-pressure live percussion applications. A -20dB pad switch and an 80Hz low-cut roll-off switch let you customize response. Provides remarkable transparency and detail.

    Requires phantom power.

    Features

    • Servo-condenser electret capsule
    • Supercardioid pattern
    • Stainless/brass triple stage pop/EMI filter for unmatched ballistic stability, high SPL characteristics, and plosives control
    • Sophisticated laser trimmed op-amp circuitry for increased management of fast transient response

    It'll earn its keep and then some. Order today.

    great mic in its class

    By shawno66

    from Geneseo, IL

    Comments about CAD Equitek e100 Condenser Microphone:

    I have owned this mic for around 14 years in my semi-pro home studio. It has never given me any technical difficulties. It sounds fantastic with vocals or acoustic guitar.

    Very good microphone

    By Music Lover-OYFvm

    from Belleville, Illinois

    Comments about CAD Equitek e100 Condenser Microphone:

    Had this microphone for over 9 years. Really good clean sound. I had a TLM 103 and can honestly say-this microphone sounded better going through an LA-610. I sold the TLM 103 and am going to purchase a AKG 414-don't know how it will compare to the E100. I really do love this mic for voice or guitar. I seen on review on MF that stated the user had a broken mic. Mine is very solid and our band has beat the heck out of it. I use it live and for recording. You won't regret buying this mic.

    e100 is an amazing valure

    By LobstaJohnson

    from Upper East TN

    Comments about CAD Equitek e100 Condenser Microphone:

    This is an amazingly transparent microphone, and is comparable in quality to other mics costing twice as much. CAD has figured out the whole "phantom power transient problem" by adding two rechargeable batteries that recharge through the phantom line, supplying extra amperage when needed for high current transients. You can also replace these with plain-ol' 9volt batteries. One caveat: if you do replace the batteries with non-rechargeable ones, DON'T APPLY PHANTOM POWER...it'll ruin the mic. As far as having trouble removing the mic from the cord, all I can say is "read the manual". This is addressed, and it takes 1 second to remove the mic from the cable if you use the technique given in the manual.Enjoy!

    Comments about CAD Equitek e100 Condenser Microphone:

    In a temperature controlled studio setting the mic started poping every few seconds and the factory wants $150 to fix it. I'm buying another mic for the $$.

    What a lot of drivel

    By Pendragon

    from Australia

    Comments about CAD Equitek e100 Condenser Microphone:

    These mics used properly in the correct application are exceptional. The price is incredible to start off with. The mic stood up to every test I gave it and wiped the floor with many of its comparatively priced rivals.

    CAD Equitek e100 Condenser Mic

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about CAD Equitek e100 Condenser Microphone:

    If you're looking at getting this mic I'd definately /think about it before you do. I made the mistake of picking this up from a friend. some of switchs (-40dB etc.) haven't seemed to work and the design is ridiculous. I don't what the designers at CAD were thinking when they decided to put the XLR input on the bottome too close the the edge. This means taking it out is about a five minute process.In all though it could sound really good for bluegrass or any thing thats not too loud otherwise don't depend on this to pad your signal or to be fast paced.
