CAD D189 Supercardioid Dynamic Microphone - The brand used by professionals
The CAD D189 is a supercardioid microphone designed for professional vocalists and musicians.
The CAD D189 provides the performance and features to satisfy today's most demanding professionals. The wide and flat frequency response of the CAD D189 provides unsurpassed natural transparent sound quality. The supercardioid pickup pattern minimizes annoying feedback (when used close to reinforcement speakers and monitors) and reduces the pickup of unwanted off-axis sounds. An effective internal multistage pop filter minimizes wind and breath noise. The CAD D189 has a Flex-Form hardened steel grille screen that dramatically resists deformation while greatly reducing any risk of adverse performance caused by a bent or dented ball screen. This unique ability to retain its original shape assures that the CAD D189 will maintain it's attractive appearance. The CAD D189 screen is painted a durable soft feel black and the body a durable soft feel "titanium gray". The D189 utilizes the proprietary CAD (I.N.R.-2 ) Impact Noise Rejection system. A rubber shock mount isolates the transducer from the body, thus dramatically reducing cable, stand and handling noise. The need for any external shock-mounting device is virtually eliminated. The low-frequency response of the CAD D189 may be enhanced by increasing or decreasing the distance from the sound source. This phenomenon is technically known as "proximity effect". Normal or "flat" response is generated at a distance of 24 inches or more. However, as the distance to the sound source decreases, the bass sensitivity increases, providing a solid robust
