OVERVIEW

A great pair of overhead condenser mics at a great price.

This is a really well-designed special deal. If there is any single microphone category in which it is likely that you will be buying two of them, it is in the category of overhead condensers. Designed for drum overheads, the CAD CM217 solves your cymbal capture at a fantastic price.

In order to get a clear picture of your drummer's cymbal blends, you need two overhead condensers. The CM217 is equipped with a high-pass filter to avoid rumble and an attenuator to accommodate drummers of varying heavy-handedness. Mic clips included.

The CM217 is additionally good for acoustic guitars, string instruments, cymbals, hi-hats, and more. A great way to record acoustic guitar is to use one CM217 aimed at the lower bout and another aimed toward the neck. You get a lovely mix of attack and body that is adjustable in the mix.


FEATURES
Designed for acoustic guitars, stringed instruments, cymbals, hi-hats, and more
Hi-pass filter
Attenuator
Mic clip included

Make sure the detail and charm of your drummer's cymbals are making it to your final audio capture. Order today.

I bought these as part of a Stupid Deal of the Day. When I unpacked them, my heart sunk and I thought, "Dang, these things are SO small. They probably won't sound very good – you got what you paid for," and was prepared to return them. Before doing that, I decided to do a shootout between the CM217s and my pair of Nady CM90s, which come at a similar price point, and which up to this point, I thought were pretty decent, compared to my AKG C1000S, which I've always disliked and considered rather overrated. I recorded identical stereo acoustic guitar parts into Pro Tools. I recorded them flat with no pad or low cut roll-off as the CM90s have no such switches. One mic was pointed just left of the bridge of the guitar (right-handed – sorry, lefties!), and the other pointed at the joint between the neck and the body of the guitar. With the CM217s, prepare to be STUNNED – BIG surprises really DO come in small packages! Wow. The CM217s had a nice, flattering, full-bodied sound, picking up the body resonance of the guitar with no overhyped high end to accompany it, like you might expect. It actually sounded pretty close to what I was hearing in the room! The CM90s, on the other hand, were hyped on the upper mids and high end, and you could actually hear a dissonant harmonic overtone clearly being added to the resonance of the guitar. The low end was also lacking on the body tone. Not flattering at all. The other thing I noticed on the CM90s is that the gain levels on the mics were not evenly matched. I had to really boost the input gain on my preamp for one of the mics to match the output levels of the other. This was not a problem on the CM217s – the levels were perfectly matched with the same settings on both channels on my ART Digital MPA II preamp. The only caveat on these mics is to be careful with mounting or removing the mics from the clips, as you could easily dent the screen – only handle them by the body (part of the the issue of them being so small). Otherwise, for the price, these mics come HIGHLY recommended – even better yet, if you can get them on a Stupid Deal of the Day! Anyone want to buy my CM90s??? :-)

This mic is not bad for the price. It's not as open as some other condensor mics due to a sharp roll-off above 10K. I would not use it on critical tracks due to the lack of high frequencies and detail. There are plenty of better mics you can get for tracking your main stuff that are still affordable. I plan to use it as an ambience mic but nothing beyond that.

Comments about CAD CM217 Condenser Mic - Buy Two and Save:

These are not worth the small amount of money they are asking for. When I bought them they were only [$] for the pair, and now they are even more. I, like many others most likely, thought "Wow! I can get a pair of overheads for only [$] dollars!" But I was wrong. These have a lot of noise and are extremely sensitive. On my preamps, I was not even able to use them without clipping, because of the extremely high output of these mics, which is common in a lot of cheap condensers. For your own good, don't buy these mics. The sound quality is terrible and they will not do you any good. You would be much better off saving up the [$] towards a pair of perception 170s if you are looking for a cheap small diaphragm condenser. Yes, they are more expensive, but the difference is worth it. If you want to get decent quality sounds out of a mic, don't get these. You are going to throw away [$] and end up wanting to buy something else in 1 month anyways so you might as well save the money and skip the hassle.

Surprising choir mic for churches on a budget

By Steven Gilchrist

from Central PA

See all my reviews

Comments about CAD CM217 Condenser Mic - Buy Two and Save:

This is my first Christmas choir show with these mics. I've never miked this choir before and the church does not own any choir mics. I was looking for a cardioid small-diaphragm condenser with high sensitivity, a reasonably flat and wide response curve and really good gain before feedback.

And my budget was limited.

If I were looking for something to record with it I might have bought something else, but for the live choir role these have turned out to be really, really good. Minimal EQ focused on a slight treble sibilance that has far more to do with the house system than with the mics. I've left them full range with attenuation OFF, and they do a good job of balancing the volume of the choir with piano and organ so that even in the overflow area everyone can be heard in the proper balance.

If you are looking for a mic for this really specialized role and don't intend to use it also to record, this little fellow will open your eyes to the possibilities of low-budget sound reinforcement in the modern era.
Small size

Light weight

XLR connector

10 db attenuator switch

Bass rolloff switch

Cardioid capsule only
Initial review: fantastic.

Very realistic sound in live choir sound reinforcement role where absolute purity is beside the point.

Only time will tell when these things will fail. For now they are stellar considering their price.
Musiciansfriend's 2011 BOGO deal for these already inexpensive mics gets you completely acceptable musicality in a live choir reinforcement role. It's a steal IMO.

I've used these mics for almost ten years now. Mostly on percussion. Congas and bongos sound great. I've also used them on horns in a big band horn section putting one on each tuxedo stand. At a medium distance, and with others set up similarly, it makes for a good economical way to mike the 13 horns of a big band.

One of the best value mics out there.

By Steve Gilchrist

from Central PA

Comments about CAD CM217 Condenser Mic - Buy Two and Save:

I give this mic my highest rating. I have 4 of them that go into the field with me as sound reinforcement for choir. That is a hard duty for a microphone. Many choirs are using the hanging mini AT mics, and they sound better than this CAD, but they'd better at 5 times the price per mic.

My SM81s are used just for recording purposes, and I've figured out how to get a good choir recording with a pair of 81s and a large diaphragm condenser as a solo mic.

But I can't lose those 81s because I ain't made o'money. Plus, in most sound reinforcement applications, the awesome quality of the SM81 is lost in the crowd noise and the PA system. What you need in a live choir mic is DECENT sound quality and a high Gain Before Feedback.

I find with these CADs, I get incredible amounts of gain--have to severely dial back the gain on these compared to the handheld SM57 we use as a solo mic. And it's no slouch in the gain department. As for sound quality, having a single SM57 dynamic in the mix is a good way to gauge SQ because everybody knows what the 57 sounds like. And with all EQ settings at zero, these little CADS are far more open sounding and give a much more 'live' feel than a 57 can do. But they still require some tweaking for best performance. The 57 also needs a lot of 'thinning' in the midbass to achieve a bit more balance with these condensers. The sound is very different and requires compensation for timbre matching. That's not a bad thing, since the slight midbass hump of the 57 is actually a much loved characteristic of that mic, very useful in other applications.

I find that if I have time to adjust the EQ parameters for the midrange of these little cheapies, I can get very, very nice sound out of the house system. But it does require some effort to balance the feedback fight with the sound quality mission. That would be true even with expensive mics of course, but since many of those have a flatter response curve to start with, the job is less involved.

I leave the bass unattenuated because with a choir you need as much bass as you can get. I also find that shockmounts are critical in live applications of this mic--it is just too 'live' to handle any bumps agaist the stand gracefully.

Behaves generally as a small-diaphragm condenser should. This is our second Christmas with this set. They got set up for five performances and about 20 rehearsals this year and they're all still working, so fingers crossed.
Bass rolloff and -10db pad, comes with basic clip.
I'm giving this thing 10 quality stars because of how inexpensive it is. So quality for me with regards to this mic is inextricable from the value proposition.
Where else are you going to find mics at 30 bucks each that can do what this mic can do?

Well i bought this because I work doing a lot of studio and Live sound work and I needed something I wouldn't mind getting beat up. they work pretty well and sound clean. the fact that the top end ist super present is kinda a good thing because in live and in recorded tracks sibilance is always your enemy. they do need a little boost in the mids sometimes but that is a easy fix with a eq after besides they they are good mics for the price. i even use them for my voiceover stuff for my youtube page now.

    I purchased this bogo deal to add to my meager mic collection. When I ordered, the very nice representative informed me that there were no returns on this item unless defective. I assumed (I know) that this was due to the product being discontinued. Within a couple of weeks these mics were included in a drum mic kit SDOTD that constituted a MUCH better value. These mics are also available again in the bogo deal at a slightly higher price.
    Again, the representative was very polite & helpful, & I was informed of the return policy regarding these items at the time of my order. Needless to say, I will do better research regarding product availability, price & return exclusions with future purchases.
    The only feedback I have regarding the mics is that they pass signal. They were purchased for a return to college as a audio engineer & have only been powered up to ensure operation.

      Used these in a a-b comparison with an Auldio Technica ATM11 and an AKG C1000 recording an acoustic guitar. The Cad did not have as much sparkle as the other two. That is not to say it was all that bad, but since I have a choice I would not use the Cad for Acoustic. Have not had a chance to use for drum overhead, which a lot of people use this mice for. The lack of sparkle might be a good thing for cymbals to keep the high transiants to a minimum. May be good for recording E. guitar amp, or keyboard amp in a live situation. Or maybe sax/horn. Can't go wrong for the price.

      Review of CM217 Condenser Mic

      By Donald Benson

      from Bedminster, Pa

      Comments about CAD CM217 Condenser Mic - Buy Two and Save:

      The "roll-off" feature provides the ability to adjust tonal quality without overpowering the treble or bass aspect of a recording.
      I recently purchased two CM217 Condenser microphones for use in my home recording studio. I have numerous other well known mics (Shure, Rhode, etc) and wanted to try these based on some positives reviews I have read.After experimenting a little with placement I must say that I am very pleased with the capabilities of these mics. When used in close proximity to record my Martin D-28 acoustic, they are simply fantastic.I would highly recommend the CM217 microphone to anyone looking to capture quality sound as they are low noise, highly sensitive and with the "rolloff" feature, they have the quality of much more expensive microphones.
      Don Benson
      Bedminster, Pa

      The CM217 is a great microphone for studio use when recording acoustic guitars. They are small, easily placed and sensitive enough to provide excellent sound reproduction.

        I bought these because I wanted a matched pair of overhead drum mikes and, considering the reviews and the two-fer price, I couldn't resist these. I have tried them on acoustic guitar and am impressed. I haven't yet used them on drums so I am reserving the fifth star. During testing while wearing headphones I thought I was having a noise problem but then realized that the mikes wear picking up the sound of the water heater through the walls of my studio booth. They're pretty hot. I am not a gear snob. I've been doing this so long I can make five monkeys on a street corner banging on pickle buckets sound good with a cassette deck. It's not the gear. It's the ears.

          For the price, this is one of those unbeatable deals. These little guys are the best instrument mics I have ever used, and I've been through several brands and models of pencil-style condensers, and these are the winners by a long shot. The sound I get from these requires little to no EQ, as they sound crystal-clear and pick up such a detailed audio picture. I've used them for guitars, basses, and drums, and they do not disappoint.

          I use them most often for my acoustic guitars, and the fact that they come in a pair makes it even better. Position one pointing directly at the 12th fret, and the other at roughly a 45 degree angle to the bridge, and you will get an amazing sound. The fret mic will pick up the high end, and the other will add the lower, deeper end, giving you a warm, complete guitar sound. For the drums, these are my overheads of choice, and I do use the pad and high pass filter included on the mics. They pick up the "slap" from the sticks like a champ, and the cymbals sound perfect (not too harsh, but present).

          Overall, these are impossible to beat for the price. Don't let the size fool you, they will give you amazing results. Especially for someone who likes to record on a budget, I assure you that these will not disappoint.

            Bought these for acoustic guitars and mandolin for the tiniest coffee shop system I could make up ( and because they were CHEAP!) Pleasantly surprised at their sound quality and versatility. Have used these successfully in the role of perimeter mic. Their diameter is too small for some mic-clips so keep thier clips with them. They are so light and small that you may place them with almost any type of non-conventional holder. Nice little miccs!

              I bought for use on hi-hats. Excellent in this application. I have since used them on acoustic guitars. They are particulaly well suited to 3/4 or parlor size acoustics amd acoustic guitars that are stiffer or brighter as these mics tend to naturally trim that edgy high end which warms up the sound of these guitars making them sound larger and more full.

              I have also used this mic on flute and violin. Again with excellent results.

              You owe it to yourself to have these versatile mics in your audio arsenal. Well built, excellent performance, incredible value and your customers will like what they hear.

                Good heavens! I tried out these babies today (yes, babies; they're tiny), and I was amazed. I don't know how their sound would compare to extremely high-end professional microphones, and I feel that it might be unfair even to do so. However, for a reasonably-experienced home recordist, the CAD CM-217's rock! For some time now, I have been accustomed to using moderate-quality dynamic mics with decent sound for the purposes of recording and/or monitoring. These electrets, however, which require "phantom power" to operate in lieu of batteries, are remarkable in comparison! Their clarity and sensitivity are capable of picking up the even faintest sounds. I listened to myself on headphones as I played bright acoustic guitar into them, and the result was crystalline; the sound was as if there were no barrier whatsoever between the guitar and my ears. I will be taking a noncredit classical guitar course this Summer, and I look forward to using these mics in a recording capacity then. I am certain that I won't be the only guitarist using them! One warning when using these, though: They are SO sensitive that a player will not want to have live monitor speakers anywhere near these mics when they're active; the feedback will be unavoidable. Use reliable headphones instead for live monitoring. Overall, I would highly recommend these top-quality budget mics to any serious amateur user, and probably to many professionals.

                  Using these as drum overheads for home recording. Good for picking up cymbals. Will not pick up the whole kit well. No problem because they aren't intended to do that. I run them through a tube pre and add an exciter and get great usable sounds...Seem very fragile

                    OK well [$] for two condenser mics, i can admit i was a little skeptical. But after i recorded some acoustics with them I was pleasantly surprised. They record instruments great, but don't buy them for vocals. You can't beat it for this price
