OVERVIEW

Low-profile instrument mic.

The TSM411 is a compact and rugged dynamic microphone designed for high-impact sound sources such as snare, toms, congas, guitar and keyboard amps. The supercardioid pickup pattern rejects unwanted ambient sounds and focuses on the sound source directly in front of it for a cleaner mix. The microphone’s new duo-point suspension’s secret is an internal polymer floatation device decoupling the rare-earth assembly from the metal enclosure greatly reducing unwanted mechanical sounds from microphone stands. The included rubber mic clip provides additional isolation.

Excellent for snare drum, mounted toms, floor toms, guitar cabinets, brass Instruments and more.

FEATURES
  • Great for high-impact sources such as snares, toms, congas and amps
  • Supercardioid pattern

      Comments about CAD TSM411 SuperCardioid Dynamic Microphone:

      To avoid the onstage clutter of an additional mic stand, I used a multi-clamp and flexible gooseneck to mount the mic to my bongo stand. The included rubber mic holder helps isolate the body from unwanted noise from the stand. The added gooseneck with a slight bend also helps. The bongos sound excellent through the PA. Would buy again

        Comments about CAD TSM411 SuperCardioid Dynamic Microphone:

        I bought one of these to use on a cajon--I place it on a short stand in front of the drum toward the top, along with a bass drum mic mounted inside. The combination of the two mics gives me a great sound. I didn't know what to expect, as I have a couple of other CADS that I would describe as cheaply made, but the reviews for this were good and the price was right so I took a chance. Turns out that this is a well-built, sturdy mic with a good sound for my purposes and a small footprint. The mount is especially well designed for keeping the mic right where you want it. I choose it over an SM57 for my live performances. After gigging with it regularly for a few months I like it enough that I just ordered a second one. I do agree with others that it would be nice if it came with a bag or case of some sort, but for this price I think I can find something to put it in.

            Great Mics. Very easy to use. I like the shock mount for isolation on drums. Full tom sound and crisp bottom snare mic too.

              Bought this one as an evaluation unit.
              Plan on getting several more.
              Can buy 4 for the cost of an sm57.
              Put mic side by side to sm57.
              Close enough for horseshoes.

              These mics work great on drums. Small format means the drummer hits them less often. Well built and durable. Did a direct comparison with an SM57 on a guitar cab. Better highs and definition. A great value for the price.

              good, low profile on your toms. I didn't need the more expensive condensers, and I didn't want a 57 on the toms = Too much length with mic and cable. Of course, I do like the 57 on the snare!
              Seemed to give our sound man what he needed to eq my toms live. Used them with the Audix D-Vice clip, mounted on the rim. Pleased with the product.

                Comments about CAD TSM411 SuperCardioid Dynamic Microphone:

                This is the second of these CAD mics I've purchased. Excellent value for the price point. I prefer this mic over an SM57 for guitar cabs. SM57's are a standard, but because they are such a diverse mic and have a broader spectrum of tone, they require more EQ to dial in that punchy mid range on an electric guitar cabinet. I really like the smooth quality of this mic and it's also a little smaller up against the grill of an amp, so if you're in a tight space it helps give you a little more room.

                  This little mic seems to have many uses in my studio. I've used it on toms (great because of almost no bleed), guitar cabs (very accurate) and along with a ribbon on acoustic guitar, quick, easy and good. Very impressed with this one.

                  Comments about CAD TSM411 SuperCardioid Dynamic Microphone:

                  Got 2 of them on stupid deal of the day. It was a no brainer for the price. I've heard of them compared similarly to SM57's. Personally, I'm using them to mic guitar amps to a PA system as well as in a home studio and it sounds great. Also not bad if your're looking for a "punchy" acoustic guitar sound. I haven't tried them on any drums yet but they seem like they'd handle any hard hitting sound well. The TSM411 appears to be a standard on toms; or at least in the realm of YouTube drum cover recordings that's what it looks like. My only complaint would be that they didn't come with any kind of case, just cardboard. Either way a great mic for the price, good for "punch", amps, and definitely has a rugged solid body.
