Incredibly detailed sound and versatility at an unbelievable price!

Packaged in a rugged, machined brass housing, the Astatic CTM-1000A condenser microphone provides transparent, accurate acoustic capture. The low-mass, 1/2" gold-sputtered diaphragm makes the CTM-1000A the preferred choice for high-frequency sources rich in transients such as choirs, symphony, cymbals, hi-hat, strings, acoustic guitar, woodwinds and piano. The transformerless design reduces low-frequency distortion at high sound pressure levels. The dual hi-pass filter and dual pad provide the versatility required in demanding live sound and studio applications. The interchangeable capsules provide both cardioid and omnidirectional polar patterns for even greater flexibility. The Astatic CTM-1000A microphone's accuracy, high SPL capability, and size make it a valuable tool in the professional audio environment.

Best Uses

  • Bridge On Acoustic Guitar
  • Cymbals
  • Natural Sounds

Though not available, I am putting this in for those looking for reviews. CAD and Astatic are pretty much the same thing. Astatic was just down the street from me in Conneaut, Ohio - the last town on Lake Erie before you get to Pennsylvania. It's near the harbor. They have evidently moved to Solon, in Northeastern Ohio, southeast of Cleveland. "CAD" means "Conneaut Audio Devices", or "Commercial Audio Devices". This mic is so sensitive it can be used to record the sound of Christmas incandescent twinkle lamps blinking on and off, or insect sounds at close range - incredible detail. But used properly, it is good for cymbals, percussion sounds, acoustic guitar finger and bridge tones, and probably overheads. I am not a pro, and this is not a "go-to" mic, but they were a great deal when available, and have incredible detail for the right purpose.

Great mics!!

I have owned a recording studio for over 10 years, and have been quite pleased with most CAD mics. But these mics are AWESOME!!! I have been impressed with them on strings, acoustic gtrs, overheads, vocals, choirs and orchestras. A tad bright on some brass (cuts a little too well withouth EQ), but great on woodwinds. I HIGHLY recommend these mics, I have 4 and purchased another 4 for our music school!!!
