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

    Comments about CAD TSM411 SuperCardioid Dynamic Microphone:

    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.

    Comments about CAD TSM411 SuperCardioid Dynamic Microphone:

    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.

        Great Mic and a Great Value

              Comments about CAD TSM411 SuperCardioid Dynamic Microphone:

              My son and I bought a couple of these awhile back and recorded a 1970's vintage Orange 4x12 cab that was being pushed by an 1977 Marshall Super Lead 100. I liked the TSM411 over SM57. The sound had a slight boost at the high ends, which is evident on CAD's response sheet. One of the previous reviews commented on the coloration of this mic. (but isn't that why we own so many different mics? ;)) Know that before purchasing. My son's favorite was a mixed combination of the TSM411 with the SM57, he got the best of both worlds on the recording. This is a great mic for the value.

              The best mic I have used with my guitar amps.
              Very surprised at the cost compared to others I have used for micing up my amps, a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe and my own Fender Baseman design/build.
              Would definitely recommend this to others.

                    Nice little mic. Wish it came with a case of some sort. All mics needs to be stowed and transported. No reason a pro company should exclude a case as they cost pennies.
