OVERVIEW

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 included rubber mic clip provides additional isolation. Excellent for snare drum, mounted toms, floor toms, guitar cabinets, brass Instruments and more.

      Comments about CAD TSM411 SuperCardioid Dynamic Microphone:

      I bought this to mic my accordion on stage. I attached it near the high reeds and pointed towards the lower ones, it seemed to do an excellent job[from what I can tell]. It was in the PA and could be heard, I can't speak for the actually sound quality cuz I was playin'. , but it seemed to be good. It's a cool little mic, it worked just as I hoped it would. The price was unbeatable !

        Comments about CAD TSM411 SuperCardioid Dynamic Microphone:

        Great Mic for live work, especially on small stages or anywhere backline is setup close together. The hypercardioid design excels at off-axis rejection so your snare isn't picking up the guitar amp and the guitar amp isn't picking up the bass cabs. Don't get me wrong, for sound it will not replace the SM57 but it certainly is no slacker when it comes to quality sound and the smaller size is just much more handy for tight stages. I have 6 of these mics now (3 each for 2 PA systems). I use them on the snare and on guitar cabs. I do hope this model remains in production. CAD mics unfortunately always seem to be underrated and under the radar.

          Comments about CAD TSM411 SuperCardioid Dynamic Microphone:

          I'll put this up against any mic specifically purposed for harmonica. There is more to blues than the "Chicago Sound". Playing a mean harp doesn't mean being mean to the instrument, or the listeners ears. This thing fits in your cupped hands just right, leaving room for plenty of hand techniques.

          I love the way this mic responds to they way you play. It picks up every nuance of sweet straight key chords, and subtle harmonics of second position tunes. When you get ready to kick the other mule out of your stall, it's got the nasty boot to get the job done!

            Comments about CAD TSM411 SuperCardioid Dynamic Microphone:

            I have been using this microphones for about 3 months now with 1 to 3 gigs per weekend. They sound great for my congas; LP Classic II set. Every single sound engineer has said they are very easy to regulate and audio quality is very clear. Up to this day no negative feedback from my peers.

            I purchased this mic as a stupid deal of the day. Will use it with my recording gear to mic our piano player, when recording our band.

            Quality mic worth a look.

            Comments about CAD TSM411 SuperCardioid Dynamic Microphone:

            So far I've only used two of these mics to record my toms (13x9 rack and 14x15 floor) and have found them to be great at capturing plenty of useable information. I just mixed a song where I was riding the floor tom through the verses and this mic gave me great stuff; round, warm and substantial with plenty of attack. Build quality is solid and will definitely hold up to my project studio requirements. Great mic, I bought a third one during a recent Stupid Deal.

            Great Mic for Anything and Everything

            Comments about CAD TSM411 SuperCardioid Dynamic Microphone:

            This mic amazed me. I am planning on using it for a snare mic going forward, but used it the other day for an acoustic guitar and vocals and the clarity was outstanding. Picked up both instrumental and vocals no problem and had a crisp clean tone. Excited to hear what it sounds like on the drum kit.

            One of the truely better alternatives to the SM57, and a very good bargain when a Stupid Deal of the Day. Small footprint, tight pickup pattern, solid build, quality sound.

            Purchased these as additional mics for my studio. They work well for percussion as well as amplifier recording. No issues with these mics found. Great price as well.
