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

      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.

                  i got this mic in a pack of mics awhile ago (my first set of drum mics) they are very good and pick up a good sound of the drums just they colored the sound too much for me to be very happy with them. I recently broke this guy out again to use on my high hat (i have 3 so why not!) and it worked quite well still experimenting with placement but it picks up high end quite well good buy for the price!

                    Got a pair of these on sale just to try them out, and I was pleasantly surprised with their sound. Really like the super-cardioid pattern and their relatively small size. May have found my new go-to mic for guitar amps and toms.

                          Used on stage to mic an old 73' Fender Pro Reverb. The sound out of the PA had great tone, the exact tone coming out of the amp. Nice and compact size.
