The first equitek2 condenser mics, completely designed and engineered by CAD's Engineering department, have started shipping, kicking things off with the 1002 studio/live condenser. The e602 instrument mic and e3002 large diaphragm condenser are scheduled to ship after the Summer NAMM show.
The new equitek2 series mics are versatile and intended for recording and live sound applications. These include the e1002, e2002, and e3002 large condensers, the e602 instrument mic, and e802 live performance mic.
Combining unmatched versatility and performance, the e1002 supercardioid electret condenser features an extended frequency response of 10-18kHz; dynamic range of 132dB; total harmonic distortion of less than 0.15%; high output capability of 148dB SPL with pad; transformerless balanced output circuits; and an internal power reservoir system.
The e1002 has a single capsule for the single supercardioid polar pattern, and the e2002 employs twin capsules for producing three patterns (supercardioid, omnidirectional, and figure of 8). The e3002 features a large diameter (1.1") externally biased, dual diaphragm capsule for producing three polar patterns (cardioid, omnidirectional, and figure 8).
