The Nady CM-90 Cardioid Condenser Microphone is a versatile small-diaphragm condenser microphone, well suited for recording and stage reinforcement of acoustic guitar, drum overheads, hi-hats, snares, piano, and horns.

The capsule is hand tooled from brass and features a 3-micron gold-evaporated-on-Mylar diaphragm for maximum sensitivity, long life, detail and tone. The rugged enclosure is made of brass, and is built to withstand the rigors of sound reinforcement and studio recording applications.

The CM-90 comes with a microphone clip, a foam windscreen (to block plosives from vocals and noise produced by wind), and a sturdy vinyl zipper pouch to protect your microphone while storing and transporting. Whether on stage or in the studio, the Nady CM-90 is an affordable and reliable solution for capturing detailed and realistic audio.
