I have used many makes and models of suspended OH mics (EV, Shure, C'man, Avlex, Crown, etc) and the CAD CM100 hangs with them easily. They are a cinch to install thanks to the miniXLR connector (in other words, a pretty small hole in the ceiling), and long cable. The sound quality really takes the cake. I have two installed as choir mics, they are bright and articulate, and capture the choir perfectly. One is installed as an instrument mic over an autoharp, guitar, and double bass. This mic is placed (unavoidably) very close to a main speaker, as in about 3 feet, and slightly behind, and has little to no bleed or feedback. Granted, volumes are low in this application, but I was able to notch out feedback with 3 filters in a feedback destroyer (not bad at all). his mic captures the autoharp and guitar as though they were close-mic'd (from about 8 feet up) and surprisingly captures a good bit of the acoustic bass also, which is rare for a small diaphragm condenser. The environment is a country (bluegrass) church band, and recording was a priority in their install. Their CDs are now excellent, and they have a great music mix. Only negatives are the visual impact of larger capsule size and gooseneck on the cable instead of a short wire hanger like others have. When installed with the windscreens they were fairly visible, but without the windscreens they hide more easily. The inclusion of the windscreens was nice though, and they're there if they were needed.All around, this is the best value in a suspended condenser I've seen and used in a long time. I will buy them again.
I have 3 of these microphones I use to mic an elementary school choir of about 30 children. I run the accompaniment cd through a monitor which these mic's pick up fine then everything is mixed at my soundboard. I do not have them permanently installed but just tape them to a mic stand when concert time rolls around. Perhaps this is why I originally had problems with feedback. Since I switched to using a monitor that only plays the accompaniment the feedback issues have been resolved. This is an inexpensive quality mic that picks up a lot. Be aware that it does need phantom power and comes with an adapter from mini xlr to regular. Used to come in white or black as well.
