    Overall, I give these a solid eight. If you need mics that will stay on a stand, you aren't a screamer and you have Phantom Power, then these mics are well worth the price to have four of them in your mic kit. Would I pull down any 'standard' mic to put these up? Probably not, but it's nice to know that I have them if I ever need them.

    Don't forget to internally mount the pop filter!
    The SPC-15 is a small diaphram condenser with an integrated pop filter. There is an additional wind sock included in the case, which I used to perform a simple mod that made the mic perform better.

    Stock, the mic is somewhat explosive (responds harshly to bursts of breath air), but with the wind sock on, it is much better. Since the socks tend to rip and get lost, I removed the mic ball and inserted the windsock inside of it, I cut it so that the majority of the material was on top of the element. No more lost socks, and the mics respond much better to p's and b's. They look better with the pop filter on the inside as well.

    I would have given this a better rating for features if they would have originally had more foam inside the capsule, but considering the low price and the simplicity of the fix I would give the end result an 7.

    This mic lacks a pad for the internal preamp, which can be overloaded without too much effort.
    I bought 6 of these, and they all sound pretty much the same. The build quality is good, they have a decent weight to them, and generally resemble an AKG 535.

    They sound great, allthough if you have someone screaming into them, the internal preamps will distort quite easily, so I wouldn't recomend them for loud singers/screamers. You also have to be right on them, the pickup pattern is quite tight, and the proximity effect is definately noticable when a singer shys away from the mic (they loose their low end).

    Handling noise is great, compared to a standard hand held vocal mic, this is one of the quietest ones I've worked with. Compared to a standard SM58, with an equal amount of gain, this mic has about a fifth of the handling noise. The down side of this is that the mic is so thin (as in size) that I don't ever use it for anything other than backing vocals as it just doesn't feel as good as a larger handheld. Also, because it it so thin (think pencil condenser), the clip would be impossible to manage for someone that was going to take it on and off a stand.

    I've limited their use to backing vocals, I haven't tried them on any instruments and likely won't bother. I like the fact that they have a tight pattern and low handling noise as it makes them easier to manage with a gate to turn them off when they aren't in use - there is less noise transmitted through the stand and off axis to trigger the gate, and when someone sings into it, it is usually way above that noise floor.
    Value is fantastic. Twenty bucks a piece is an incredible deal for this mic.

    Comments about Nady SPC-15 Condenser Microphone Buy 2 & Save:

    I bought these for game commentary and I was skeptical at first. Having been recording rap vocals for a while 40 for 2 condenser mics seemed to good to be true.

    But right out of the box I was impressed. They both came with their own carry cases, stand clips, and wind screens.

    I plugged them in and started doing test recordings and WOW! They sounded fantastic with extremely little setup or tinkering.

    They are quiet, no buzzing and pick up little to no background noise.

    This is a steal. Take it.

          Comments about Nady SPC-15 Condenser Microphone Buy 2 & Save:

          Needed a live-sound solution for a choral group (~25) that has been notoriously difficult to mike in the past. Bought two of these because of their value - hoping for decent results. Hung from boom stands and they absolutely did the trick! Great response (seemed pretty flat in vocal range) and highly sensitive. The super-cardioid pattern really helps prevent feedback. They seem reasonably solidly built - so hopefully will hold up over time. Impressive condenser solution for incredible price!

                Very nice vocal condenser. Low cost, so no worries with amateur users. In my church, even if it is lost or stolen, no worries. The only problem is rf interfernce. In my location I get overwheling AM radio pickup. So get a few RAPCO RF filters on musicians friend when you buy the microphones. My other condensers (AT, MXL)have fewer problems with RF pickup, but I still use filters.

                    These each came with their own leather case and was packaged firmly. The Mic clips are not well made but they are an extra in my mind so I do not consider their horrible build in the actual mic review. The mics sound great I use them mostly for Drum Overheads and Acoustic Instruments but have used them for vocals. They sound good all around and they came with free wind screens so I am happy with the purchase.

                        This little SPC-15 blows the doors off the large condenser mic I've been using for voice overs. The old mic was a side address and hanging off a boom making it next to impossible to talk into. With this Nady, I can relax and speak directly into it like a dynamic front address mic. Works and sounds incredible. No problems or complaints and at this price....but some extras for spares.
