Nady SCM 960 overview

  • 1Description

The SCM-960 Studio Condenser Microphone from Nady is designed for project studio recording, podcasts, light broadcast applications, and similar scenarios. The large diaphragm condenser microphone features an internal shockmount for reducing handling noise and switchable cardioid and omnidirectional patterns. Switchable -10, -20, and 0 dB attenuation maximize headroom when capturing transient (peaking) audio signals. The SCM-960's transformerless FET output electronics further minimize noise, resulting in clear audio reproduction.

Large, pressure-gradient condenser and gold-sputtered diaphragm
FET preamplifier
Internal shockmount construction for structural integrity and reliability
Selectable attenuation pad and omni or cardioid polar pickup patterns
Requires 48 V of phantom power

    Nady SCM 960 reviews

    SCM-960 Studio Condenser Microphone is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits Samson SP01 Shock Mount I just received the SCM-960 and have yet to get it set up. I'm happy to report that my Nady SCM-960 does have threads and it fits perfectly with the Samson SP01 shock mount. This is interesting because in the photos of the Nady SCM-960 it doesn't appear to have any threads. Mine also came with a mic holder.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from shakes like a rattle I returned this mic as soon as it came in the mail. The element is loose within the case. Never in 45 years have I had one like this. I got a replacement which was waiting on me when I returned from Christmas break. It's the same mic. I know it's the same because of a small scratch on the bottom of the XLR connector. It still shakes like a rattle. I'll try to send it back tomorrow, but I fear I'll get a song and dance.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wow I'm often impressed with what Nady has to offer, but probably never more than this.� This mic performs beautifully for any price, but especially for this price.� I would highly recommend getting a separate shockmount for it though, depending on how you intend to use it.� Sounds great and the omni/cardioid option is gold.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great inexpensive mic. This is my second one wanted a stereo pair for drums for my studio. Have used for live sound but this mic is a little fragile. Which is my biggest complaint. I might even get a couple more.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not Bad at all I must say for the cost of this microphone it has a pretty good sound for a low cost condenser mic. I would still recommend a spider shock mount for it.
