A classic warm tube mic at a breakthrough low price!
The Nady TCM-1100 is a cardioid condenser mic featuring a hand-tooled brass capsule. The TCM-1100 mic also has a 3-micron gold-sputtered mylar diaphragm (1.1"), a unique gold-plated center element that extends the top octaves and enhances transient response, and a 12AT7 vacuum tube specially selected for low distortion, superior signal-to-noise ratio and low sensitivity to mechanical vibrations. It provides the long life, subtle sonic detail, and unsurpassed warmth of tone that defines the best tube microphones. The Nady TCM-1100 comes with a 16', 7-pin XLR cable and TMPS-1 power supply (with switchable 115/2230V operation), and a balanced output for connection to any mixing console. Also includes plastic case for transport and storage.
Requires phantom power.

I have two of these mics, and I serisouly love them! I use two as overheads on drums, and one for vocals, both ways they sound amazing.One note on the "hum", make sure the power supply is set to 110V, not 220V, that will most likely eliminate the unwanted "hum" noise.
Anyone who says they can tell the difference between a Neumann and a TCM1100 in a full blown production is lying. Side by Side with no eq, yeah, you can tell. But it's not the quality of the sound that makes a difference, it's the different frequency curve. If you want to pay a couple thousand more for that, go for it!
I went through three of these. The mic itself is just fine but the power supply that comes with it produces an unacceptable hum. In one of the mics it was bearable, another was bad but the third had this noise at an incredibly loud level. I can see one bad mic but 3 out of 3 is just extreme. Stay away from 'em until Nady solves this issue!
I've had a pair of these for about 5 years. I've used these mikes in a stereo pair to record an excellent high school jazz lab band. The imaging depth is incredible and the mikes create a natural tonal balance with great dynamics. Highly recommended.
Excellent vocal mic, very smooth with rough voices, flute, percussion, cymbals and acoustic guitars.
If you want a condenser mic without the condenser budget - this is it. Amazingly smooth and clear - unbeatable at $$$! Highly recommended.
