I just bought this kit with the CM-88s. I ordered them for what they are. They are, according to Nady, cymbal mics and they are the cymbal condensers in the 7 piece Nady drum mic kit. I had earlier purchased the Nady 5 piece kit and when my drums started sounding so much better I thought I could do as much for the cymbals. My cymbals sound like my cymbals and the CM-88s pick up everything I do clearly. They are not as unidirectional as billed but I do not mind. I use 4 condensers for 7 cymbals and hi-hat. One mic picks up two cymbals and with one for the hi-hat another one handles a group of 3 which includes a ride. My cymbal mics pick up from under the cymbal and hi-hat to prevent any over-head type pick-up. The upper frequency boost and lower frequency roll-off make these near perfect cymbal mics for my home drum recording. They are so very much better than the dynamic instrument mics I was using. My cymbals sound fantastically like they should in my recordings and I need nothing else.

I needed some hypercardioid condenser mics to shut out monitors but still allow acoustic instruments to be picked up from a couple of feet from the mic stand. This is not the answer. These things have quite a pronounced midrange hump, so if you don't put them through a 7-band EQ, you're sunk. Also, I did have a rather elaborate tree on my mic stand with two MXL 990's facing out at 45-degree angles, and they worked much better than this--too well, in fact, because although their sound was good, feedback was always a problem. Next I'm going to try these with lo-to-hi transformers and put an inline EQ pedal into the PA with them running through it. If I had this to do over, I would go with AKG C100S and use the hyper attachments.

    Great budget condensers

    By bluesdrummermark-m10is

    from Massachusetts

    Comments about Nady CYM-2 Condenser Mic Kit:

    We've used Nady headsets through the years and always found they were rugged and a good value for the money. Picked up a set of these to use in our small recording studio and pretty pleased so far. Hot little buggers on cymbals and have used them on acoustic guitar in a pinch with excellent results (set one about 8 inches off where the neck and body meet around 14th fret and 'yer good to go). So hot in fact, you need to be careful with bleed if you have someone doing a scratch vocal in the same room (solo your track and your heard what I mean). Very happy with these little dudes and probably going to grab a second set for my road bag. I'm giving these an overall 4.5 only because the clips could be a little better (mics tend to fall out if you mount them clip side down but heck, thats why they make gaffer's tape). Dont sweat the details and get these.

    Great Buy!

    By Matty'sDub

    from Roanoke, Va

    Comments about Nady CYM-2 Condenser Mic Kit:

    I bought these mics to mic up my percusion set. I had little money at the time so I went for the deal. I wasn't expecting them to sound so great! At my first show with the mics the sound guy was exceptionaly pleased with the pick up. He could hear the cooks talking in the back of the venue through his monitors and had to adjust the positioning accordingly. I would recomend this kit to anyone who needs to be heard on a budget.

    this is a good buy

    By Fiddle Man

    from Ketchikan, Alaska

    Comments about Nady CYM-2 Condenser Mic Kit:

    This is a good buy if you need some cheap instrument/drum mics. I bought them with minimal expectations, mostly b/c they were SO cheap. You can't use them for vocals but I use them with my fiddle and guitar and they sound great! The pattern is tight enough that you can get them pretty hot w/o feedback. One thing though, the mic clips that they come with are junk.

    Extreme Value

    By Music Meister

    from Florida

    Comments about Nady CYM-2 Condenser Mic Kit:

    I was on a budget, but needed to mic my small SATB choir for general sound reinforcement. I bought 2 of these (4 CM-88 mics) and mounted them atop 2 mic stands with stereo "T" bars. I was able to slightly cheat the direction towards my better singers in each of the 4 sections, but they do capture the sound of the choir quite well. I am pleased, and WHAT A BARGAIN.

    These are great for the price

    from Mercersburg, PA

    Comments about Nady CYM-2 Condenser Mic Kit:

    The bad reviews on this product might be before the CM-88 was included in the 2 mic deal (previously the CM-85. I did not get any bad recording from these yet. For the price they are great. They are not intended for close vocal. For the price you can't beat the value. Take a chance if you don't like it send it back.

    Works Great for Choirs

    By OGUMC

    from Letart, WV

    Comments about Nady CYM-2 Condenser Mic Kit:

    Last year our church needed a good set of choir mics that could be portable, and yet be able to pick up the choir too. These mics will do that plus more. Great Price!
