Nady Systems recently introduced several new studio mics, the SCM Series, which represent a significant price/performance breakthrough for large diaphragm studio and broadcast microphones. With their new, low price, these microphones are now affordable for the first time to the smallest studios and other projects on a tight budget. The SCM Series includes 5 models--the 900, 910, 920, 980, and 1000, with the SCM-1000 being the top of the line.
The SCM microphones are designed for studio vocals, acoustic instruments, orchestras and choral groups, ambient instrument audio, and many live sound applications. All models feature true condenser design with large pressure-gradient, gold-sputtered, ultra thin diaphragms and FET preamplifiers for warm, natural reproduction of the most subtle to the most powerful audio sources and the most accurate transient response possible. They also feature internal shock-mount construction for structural integrity and rugged reliability. The five models have different combinations of controls, with the SCM-1000 offering all options with selectable low-cut filter, 10 dB attenuation pad, and multiple polar patterns: omni/cardioid/figure 8.
Were very proud of our new studio microphones," commented John Nady, president and founder of Nady Systems. "They have the specs, performance, and durability of high-end mics and can meet the stringent requirements of even the most demanding digital recording and live broadcasting applications. But theyre also extremely affordable, making such units finally accessible to everyone. The SCM-1000 in particular is a real gem of a mic, and its got a great vintage look and tone I wish it was available back when I was in the studio doing some of my own recording!"
