The CAD GXL-1200 is a small diaphragm condenser microphone with a cardioid pattern, also effective in minimizing noise, ambiance and feedback. The GXL-1200 is intended for general instrument pick up, although proven highly effective for vocals. The high SPL handling enables excessively loud audio signals to be reproduced without noise or distortion. The GLX-1200 is housed in a slim profile, rugged enclosure ideal for spot capturing vocals and instruments such as guitar, strings, wood winds, overheads, cymbals, percussion and more.

The cardioid polar pattern is effective in minimizing noise and ambiance at the off-axis sections of the microphone capsule.

        I'm not a pro audio tech..yet..I specialize in video. But these mics are great so far for a simple and cheap solution and are performing well in tests.

        Comments about CAD GXL-1200 Instrument Microphone:

        I use this mic for recording voice overs for my video productions. When I did my first recording with the microphone, I was amazed by how clear the subject sounded. Also, when I turned the gain all the way up, I could also hear the water running through my floor, my parents coming up the stairs, and the dogs who were on the opposite side of the house. Needless to say, this microphone sounds amazing and has a capability for detail that I have never had before.

        One problem. Phantom power. I cannot use it with my camera.

          this mic is good for drum overheads and brass.
          when used with the KBM 412 you have a simple
          drum kit that is easy to set up. the low self
          noise lends itself to acoustic recording.

            Comments about CAD GXL-1200 Instrument Microphone:

            I love the clarity and low noise in this mic.

            I use it for not only recording acoustic guitar and ukulele but I also use it for foley and sound effect recording out in the field for video.

            Great mic for the price.
