General Your general opinion of this product. A friend recommended these microphones for acoustic and vocal use. When I sampled his for an indoor gig while on tour I was very impressed. Came home and ordered two for my use. They arrived in time for my next hometown outdoor gig and I was very impressed with their response and how much extra headroom I had, not having to push the gain to high to get good response. Can't wait to use them on a regular basis! Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Feels and appears very durable. Ease of Use How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be? Plug and play (and turn on the phantom power, of course) Sound How is the tone? very clear and accurately representative of acoustic and vocal performance.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? yes, well made. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? phantom powered and inexpensive. Ease of Use How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be? Great in studio....touchy live. With gain at 3, power is equivalent to a 7 setting with a dynamic mike. I get feedback in live situations, when gain is higher then a 3 setting....only because the mike preamp is extremely sensitive...that sensitivity is where it excells in studio. Sound How is the tone? really good. General Your general opinion of this product. Too touchy for me to rely on it live...great in studio.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? The Cad C195 works even when a musician drops the microphone stand and the C195 microphone right off the front of the stage. I had this happen and the stage crew put the microphone back on the stage and the show started right back up. With smiles from everyone there! Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? I feel that the best feature is that this microphone gives you some space between you and the microphone to work, and still does not feed back. It has great directional properties and works great in any stage show I have had to work. It works al the way down to people playing a lap dulcimer with their fingers rather than with a pick. Great instrument and vocal microphone and does not cost an arm and a leg. The C195 also takes the abuse of stage work and keeps working every day... Ease of Use How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be? CAD C195 is the best replacement I have ever seen for the Shure SM 58 or 57 microphones. I have done some stage shows as of late and other sound people there did love the C195 so much they did order them the next day for their stock. Also many musicians I know have slowly changed over to the CAD C195 because you don't have to have your mouth right on the microphone. As per using it for acoustic instruments I use the C195 by CAD on Lap Dulcimers and it works great and does not have to be right on top of the instrument like the Shure microphones I did have before. Sound How is the tone? Every musician and storyteller I work with thanks me for working their event, and usually asks me for a recorded copy of their set. As they tell me that this is the best audio they have had from a sound system.
great sound ...inexpensive price!
