    I just got this mic. I had just tracked vocals for a song with the dynamic mic I had been using when this came by UPS. I redid the vocals with this mike so I could compare and I was really impressed. It sounded so much brighter and more natural and my vocals didn't really need any eq'ing to get the sound I was going for. In the past I had to take bass out and add treble into my vocals to get them more natural sounding since the proximity effect inherent with a dynamic mic adds bass to vocals. I have the urge to redo a lot of my music with this mic since it sounds so nice. Have not had a chance to test it with instruments yet. As far as build, the pattern selector switch does seem a little off center and that is the only quality issue I noticed with it. It sounds very clean and quiet without hiss or noise in the signal also.

    I thought this was a good product, so I jumped on the occasion to buy the product at the sale price. When I got the product, to my horror, found out that the product came with no means to mount to a mic stand. Enclosed was a flyer with shock mount, wind screen and other items that goes with the product which is 100% required to make this product work. No choice, you have to spend the extra for the shock mount, and more for the wind screen because the mic has such poor diaphragm protection. You have no choice, you must buy these things directly from the manufacturer. What kind of a manufacturer would sell a product that wouldn't work out of the box these days?

    I couldn't believe the deal I got

    By Joseph Groves

    from Kissimmee, FL

    Comments about Nady SCM 1000 Microphone:

    I love the SCM-1000! This microphone has so many uses because of it's tri-directional design. I use it mostly for my drummer as a distance mic. It picks up everything with great clarity and balance. I have also used it for vocals, group and solo occasions. The attenuator is perfect for cutting the signal. The low pass filter is a great help also. I've heard and seen mics that cost hundreds more than this mic that may sound a bit better for their use, but they weren't nearly as versatile as this one, great job NADY!

    Great Recording Mic

    By vhsbands

    from South Dakota

    Comments about Nady SCM 1000 Microphone:

    My school has owned a pair of Nady SCM 1000's for about 5 years. We use them to record symphonic band and choir concerts. The music staff could not be more happy with the sound produced. Thanks for a great mic.

    Pro sound, low price

    By Redguitar

    from Carson City, Nv

    Comments about Nady SCM 1000 Microphone:

    I have had this mike for 5 years and have never been disappointed by it. I use it mainly for vocals and acoustic guitar. The sound is very natural. I have never had to EQ anything recorded with this mike. The selectable polar patterns make this the most versatile mike I have seen for the price. I have used the omni pattern to record an orchestra and every instrument came out clear and distinct. Even the bass instruments at the back of the room came through with strong presence, yet didn't overpower. The cardioid pattern is great for solo vocals and instruments while the fig 8 works well for duets or in between two speaker cabs. I highly recommend this product.

    Impressive

    By Marv Dungbeetle

    from Valparaiso, Indiana

    Comments about Nady SCM 1000 Microphone:

    I have owned this mic for about two years and used it primarily on vocals. I must say that for the price I am pretty impressed. At high SPLs the sound gets pretty colored, but at low SPLs it delivers an amazing warmth. It can get a bit noisy, but nothing a home studio recorder would need to worry about. If you have a couple hundred more bucks I would recommend the Shure KSM27. Sounds a bit better.

    Comments about Nady SCM 1000 Microphone:

    I was pleasently surprised with this mic. I use it as a backup for my principle voice-over mic. Don't think it will compare to the high-end mics, but it gets the job done with no distortion or unwanted noise!

    This mic has a really good sound. I use it to record live concerts and it works wonderfully. I also use it in the studio for everything from vocals to guitars and it works equally well on everything.

    Not a great sounding mic for most applications

    By anonymous888

    from Brooklyn, NY

    Comments about Nady SCM 1000 Microphone:

    This just isn't a great sounding mic for most applications. However, it is a great deal, and a great way to learn how to use a large diaphragm condenser. It might sound good on violin or female vocals, things that don't require a really tight or pronounced low and low-mid range.
