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

Great little mic at a good price. I paid SDOTD prices but would recommend this mic for recording even at regular price. Great sound reproduction. I'm using this on a guitar amp in a home recording aplication with a tabletop style mic stand.

    Comments about CAD TSM411 SuperCardioid Dynamic Microphone:

    this was a stupid deal but the timing couldn't have been better. I was recording and needed a guitar mic as mine failed. I ordered and it is perfect for what I am doing. I love the microphone for live and recording.

          Comments about CAD TSM411 SuperCardioid Dynamic Microphone:

          Great value in a well built solid mic. This is the second TSM 411 I have purchased. Great for percussion. I have used it on guitar cabinets as well. The only mistake I made with this mic was not buying the second TSM411 when I ordered the first one.

            This mic does what it is suppose to do for the money. You have to turn up the gain a little bit more than the more expensive ones, but that's minor.

            I used this to mic a guitar cabinet. I use a Tascam DR-03 with onboard microphones and could never seem to get a good sound. I ran a cable with a 3.5mm plug from the TSM411 to the recorder and I get clear sound no matter how loud the volume is and switching from clean to dirty is no problem now. I got this from the STDOTD and am very impressed with the performance even at full price.

              Comments about CAD TSM411 SuperCardioid Dynamic Microphone:

              I bought it as a "Stupid Deal of the Day" to try out as a harmonica mic. Nice find! Fits nicely in your hand, and supercardiod pattern makes it easier to avoid feedback if you get out from behind your amp. Sound quality rivals a Shure SM-57, for a lot less money. Shock mount makes it work nicely as an instrument mic for amps, and it will take the sound pressure created if you use it as a drum mic. I haven't had it long enough to evaluate durability, but I expect it to do well.

              Excellent value considering the price paid. Bought as the stupid deal of the day. The TSM411 has much sturdier and rugged construction that other CAD mics I have purchased.
              Would buy it again.

                Comments about CAD TSM411 SuperCardioid Dynamic Microphone:

                I got this mic when it was on sale for the SDOTD. I needed a workhorse instrument mic for my home studio and thought it might fit the bill; and the price that day was right!

                Packaging was minimal; just a little white box with some bubble wrap, the mic and its stand mount, and a 1 page spec sheet from the manufacturer. It arrived in perfect condition, although the color of the mic is a bit darker in person compared to the pictures online. The darker color looks better anyway IMO.

                The rubber holder/stand mount works well and i feel that I'll never have to worry that this mic will fall out of its clip... ever. The rubber part completely surrounds the mic so you have to remove the cable to put it on. In my situation, it will literally live on the stand full time, so this is a plus for me.

                The mic itself is heavier and more solid feeling than I imagined. It doesn't feel cheap at all and seems like it will withstand years of earsplitting solos and whacks with drumsticks!

                First thing I did was to audition the mic with my voice through my DSP and some headphones. First impression was good. My speech was loud, clear, and balanced sounding. I added a long delay so i could hear only the reproduction.

                Later, I recorded an acoustic guitar track I've been itching to get down. Good results again in this application. I did have to boost the lows a little bit to get a balanced sound, but only a tiny bit. The mids and highs were very well defined with no EQing. After adding some effects (EQ, reverb, doubler, hint of chorus...) the track was starting to sound better that I expected!

                Overall, I am pleasantly surprised with the performance of this mic! For SDOTD the price, it cant be beat! Even at normal price it would make a solid home studio mic and it would be great back up for live use. It is meant to be a drum mic, but I cannot comment about its performance in that context.
