The CAD M179 Microphone and Acousti-Shield 22 Kit from B&H includes a CAD variable-pattern condenser microphone, a CAD Acousti-Shield 22 foldable stand-mounted acoustic enclosure, a microphone swivel mount, an elastic shockmount, a microphone carrying case, an assembly pack with bracket and parts, and a 5/8 to 3/8" European mic-stand adapter. They can be used to suppress and control acoustic reflections, ambiance, noise, and leakage during vocal and instrument recording.
The mic features a 1.1" dual-diaphragm external-bias condenser capsule with figure-8 and omnidirectional polar patterns. It can be used for capturing audio in a wide range of applications such as recording studio vocals, voice-overs, choirs, orchestras, guitars, and more. It incorporates a gold-sputtered diaphragm and is built with a stainless steel internal pop/EMI filter.
Furthermore, the Acousti-Shield is made from a high-quality 16-gauge perforated stainless steel shield mated to 53mm of high-density micro-cell acoustic foam. It creates a dry recording environment and reduces reflections, echoes, and attenuates unwanted interference. The design is foldable and allows for portability and positioning flexibility.
