  • Reviews/Ratings

The CAD GXL2200 is an outstanding large diaphragm condenser microphone good for many applications. It's robust build quality exceeds it's modest price range. Cad microphones have always been a good value and the GXL2200 is no exception.

This fixed cardioid pattern, condenser microphone features a 1” gold vapor deposited diaphragm. Its high sensitivity and low distortion make this microphone an ideal candidate for recording, broadcast, sound reinforcement including vocal and instrument applications.

This mic is at home in the studio, on the live stage or in worship environment. The microphone requires standard 48 Volt phantom power. It comes with a swivel mount that can be removed by unscrewing the knurled ring on the bottom of the microphone.

Applications for the CAD GXL2200
  • Choir Microphone
    • Mount the mics on tall boom stands in front of the choir. This always works best with a stage riser. Use 3 or 4 GXL2200 for a small to mid sized choir of 12 to 24 members. See more about miking a choir.

  • Acoustic Guitar Microphone
    • Mount the GXL2200 on a boom stand and position @ the 12th fret and aim back toward the sound hole. You may need to use an equalizer to remove some of the low mid frequencies to taste and watch the gain if using live.

  • Drum Overhead Microphones
    • Mount (2) GXL 2200 microphones on (2) boom stands in front of the drum set aim down toward the left and right front of the kit. Try to get as high above the kit as possible to even out the different distances of the cymbals, toms and even the snare that will end up in the overheads. Remember the overhead mics are the most critical drum mics in the mix if used correctly.

  • Small Vocal Ensemble Microphone/s
    • Mount (1) C3000B for mono or (2) for stereo (or more mono coverage) on stands in front of the group.

  • Ambiance Microphones
