Engineered and built in the USA, the new CAD Equitek E100S large-diaphragm supercardioid condenser microphone has an exceptionally low noise floor (3.7 dBA) while providing a smooth vintage tone and full-bodied low end.

The E100S features a bootstrapped, full differential Quadra-FET front-end to ensure high sensitivity and low distortion.

A nickel-plated one-inch capsule delivers accurate phasing when miking instruments and a full, rich tone for vocals that is enhanced by the microphone’s extended low-end frequency response.

CAD’s proprietary circuitry preserves all of the warmth and detail demanded by artists and engineers.

Additional features include an 80 Hz hi-pass filter and a 10 dB pad.

A twin 5087 output driver provides low drive impedance.

RoHS compliant, the E100S also features exceptional RF immunity. (48-volt phantom power is required.)

The E100S is versatile enough to deliver exceptional performance on stage and in the studio, and is supplied with a high-quality cherry wood carrying case and stealth shock mount.

MSRP (U.S.) is $799
