Supercardioid mic designed for robust vocal tones and extended low-frequency response.
Engineered and built in the USA, the CAD Equitek E100S large diaphragm supercardioid condenser microphone has an extremely low noise floor for its class (3.7 dBA) and the smooth, vintage tone and robust low end CAD is known for. The bootstrapped, full-differential Quadra-FET front end delivers high sensitivity and low distortion, plus CAD's proprietary circuitry ensures the highest performance.
The CAD microphone's nickel-plated 1" capsule delivers accurate phasing on instruments, and a full rich vocal tone, accentuated by the extended low-frequency response. Features include an 80Hz high-pass filter and a 10dB pad. From vocals to percussion, acoustic instruments and everything in between, the CAD Equitek E100S condenser mic will prove to be one of the most versatile tools in your microphone locker, in the studio, or onstage.
The CAD Equitek E100S condenser microphone comes in a vintage woodgrain cherry case and has a stealth shockmount included. 48V Phantom power is required.

Comments about CAD Equitek E100S Large Diaphram Condenser Mic:
I bought this mic after reading excellent reviews on its predecessor model and the fact that it is now made in the USA.
I have used a number of tube and solid state condenser mics in my studio over the last 10 years. If I could keep only one of them, the CAD Equitek E100S would be it.
The E100S does a phenomenal job of articulating acoustic instrument sound as well as vocal performances.
I am extremely satisfied with this mic. I am also heartened that it is made in the USA with a noticeable quality improvement over some of the imported mics I also own.
The CAD E100S was used to record vocals as well as acoustic guitar (in conjunction with a CAD e70 small diaphragm condenser) on a new CD I just finished. The E100S did a superb job on the vocals. The E100S (slightly off axis) and the e70 on axis of the sound hole, both about 10 inches away, did an excellent job of capturing the nuances of my Brazilian rosewood dreadnought and 000 guitars.
