Nady CM 90 overview

  • 1Description

The Nady CM 90 Cardioid Condenser Microphone is a versatile small-diaphragm condenser microphone, well suited for general vocal capturing, instruments, amplifier cabinets, drums, percussion and more. The CM 90 features a true condenser element, resulting in high sensitivity, wide frequency response and high signal-to-noise ratio. Its cardioid polar pattern manages off-axis ambiance and noise while delivering high gain-before-feedback. The rugged enclosure is made of brass, and is built to withstand the rigors of sound reinforcement and studio recording applications.

High sensitivity, extended smooth, full frequency response and very high SPL capability
Transformerless design for minimal self-noise and increased dynamic range
Rugged, turned-brass housing and internal sub-assembly shockmount for maximum reliability
Requires 48V phantom power

    Nady CM 90 reviews

    CM 90 Cardioid Condenser Microphone is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Almost a Fantastic Deal This mic sounds wonderful, most of the time. I own a pair of these mics and have used them with various preamps - Alesis iO Hub, Tascam DR-40, ART Tube MP, and Studio Projects VTB-1, and it works great with all of them. However, I have a pair of these mics and the only preamps I have a pair of is on my M-Audio M-Track. These mics exhibit a overbearing crunching horrible noise only when used with my M-Track. The M-Track works fine with all my other mics, and the CM-90s work fine with all my other preamps. I feel as though perhaps these mics aren't stable with USB interfaces, and certainly not with an M-Track. Otherwise they sound great.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent Used for : Acoustic Guitar Voice Drum overheads Idk why it just seems average. Nothing speacial about it sound wise. I did like the fact that it was very affordable! If this is your first condenser, buy it. Comes with the case and mount. I should have bought a stereo Pair.
