Excellent Microphone for Price - Great for acoustics


I am using both CO2 Condensers on a microphone tree, to record acoustic instruments in stereo. Excellent pick-up capabilities .. and plenty of signal strength



Great mics for the price!!!


These are some great sounding pencil condensers at a price that is hard to beat! The included stereo bar makes stereo recordings of any source as simple as it can be, since they can both mount on one microphone stand. The CO2's really shine as drum overheads, but work great with acoustic guitars, pitched percussion, and even choirs.




Fantastic sound from these


I often play play trombone and trumpet and do minor singing at our performances. I can set one to vocals and the other to the horns. The case and kit that came with the mics; excellent! I bought my own power source so that I'm not at the mercy of sound systems without Phantom Power. I'd buy these again.

Can't imagine better


This is a simple but powerful mic. Just plug your xlr cable into to bottom of you mic and the other end into your audio interface and start playing. This is the best of its price. Clear, crisp, and awesome sound. Sounds like a 1000 mic for 150. Not to mention but there is 2 that comes with. The shockmount and wind cover that comes with is very useful too. All you need to start recording.

Good Price- Good Quality


Well made, for the price, I use them for my Paiste cymbals on my Yamaha DTX E-Drums. Works great.

Don't Sleep on these mics


I was very skeptical about purchasing these mics. My application is for hi hats and overhead miking. Also on acoustic guitar. These mics gives me the sound I want without eq. I still can't believe the price. These are great mics.

When I ordered these over a year ago I was looking for a set of mics to use on the 12th and the sound hole of my Taylor 814. I had tried 2 sm57's, 2 sterling st69's and 2 Neiman 102's. Every mic gave me a different sound,nice but not the sound I was looking for.[...] Not convinced I ordered them and love the way they sound. These mics give me the sound I was looking for. If you record the CO2's are a must have for your studio.




Great Drum Overheads for the Price!


I've used the CO2s in both a live and studio recording setting. They're all I need for an acoustic jazz setting to mike a little be-bop set of drums that includes an 16" bass drum and Constantinople and K Zildians - the CO2s produce true sounding cymbals and open tonal sounding drums. Great Price - can't go wrong! Newell Canfield drummer
