    CAD GXL-2200 reviews

    GXL2200 Cardioid Condenser Microphone (Silver) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A good mic, for what it is. Good, general purpose large diaphragm condenser. It is gold vapor deposited on the diaphragm, but it's no C-414, or Shure, for that matter. However, for the price, it will get you started. I bought this mic to match up with a GXL2200 I already had so I'd have a matching pair. I use this to pick up choir groups, pianos, etc. in a live-sound environment. It doesn't seem to have the output the pricier mics have, but it's also $800 - $1000 cheaper - there's the trade-off. So far I've been able to make up for it with the gain knob. With all that said, the overall sound quality is great and noise floor low. It should work fine for just about any application.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2 Thumbs Up This mic was great, its pick up all sounds in front of it and mostly none of the background noise. It mic looks cool, nice and gold and comes with a much needed shock mount. I would pay much more for this mic.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Actually Quite Good! Considering the Price - Really Good! Reading raving reviews for inexpensive gear I'm always a little skeptical as to if the people writing them are just looking for some sort of validation as sound engineers. I bought this microphone because it has the frequency response that I have found to be the most optimal for vocals. The thing that concerned me the most was floor noise. It's actually quite low on this CAD condenser. I was considering spending more and getting a Rode NT1-a, which I tested out at a local music store, but opted out for this mic because all the video reviews I found for this CAD mic were low-fi d.i.y. style demos that sounded clear and warm. All the video reviews for NT1-a I found were pro and usually done in a well insulated studio, hence making the mic sound amazing. I did find one video for NT1-a that was a low-fi type of thing and it sounded very shrill, which correlates with the huge bump in it's frequency responce at 3500khz. Only thing about this mic is it's body is kinda cheaply made but soundwise it's surpassed my expectations.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really nice snake cable. This is a well built unit and I like the royal blue color of the cable. Each individual cable is numbered with shrink wrap at each end. Also, the connectors are labeled - they're broken into groups A 1-4 and B 1-4 I find using the A and B labeling quicker than trying to sort out all eight numbers. I've read some reviews where the purchaser complained about bad solder joints. Being made in China with Neutrick clones I was concerned, too. I bought eight of these snake cables to wire up a microphone splitter and plugged in each cable individually to a mic and a mixer, with phantom power on, to listen for crackles and problems. Result: No issues! That's 8 snakes x 8 cables = 64 individual mic cables all working properly out of the box. With that many solder joints, anyone would have expected to clean up at least one or two. But, not these. For those who get one with a bad end, get your soldering iron out and deal with it - if you're in the sound system business you're constantly doing that anyway as part of general maintenance. But as for the law of averages for getting good cables for this product, I think you'll be okay. These cables coil nicely, come with a Velcro strap and lay flat when unrolled. Really good product for the price.
