    The CAD M179 is wildly popular. And for good reason – only $129 for a multiple pattern mic. Lot’s of folks use it as a go-to mic for recording drum toms. But as a vocal mic ... meh, I say.

    I’ve always found the M179 to have an excessive bass proximity effect, scooped midrange and a very sibilant and excessive top end – not the qualities I’d prefer to hear in a vocal mic.

    This is Michael Joly writing. Please take a listen to an MJE modified CAD M179 vs the current Neumann standard U 87ai. I believe you’ll find the MJE-M179 has the right qualities for great vocal takes – usable (not excessive) proximity effect, a warm and punchy “Neumann-esque” midrange and a smooth top end free from sibilance or harshness.

    The modifications for your M179 start with my signature single layer headbasket conversion to create a more-open sound with less coloration from internal headbasket reflections. My doubled-sided 6 micron diaphragm MJE-K47 capsule replaces the stock K67 type capsule with its built in HF peak. All polar patterns are retained. And to round out the mods we install our field-proven Premium Electronics mods that extend deep bass, provide more midrange detail and smooth the top. In short, a transformation of a “drum mic” into a world-class vocal recording tool.

    Remember, the price for this boutique transformation of your mic includes the installation of my MJE-K47 capsule and the entire Premium Electronics suite and single layer headbasket modification. You'll get an immediate confirmation email of your order. By the close of the next business day you'll receive a personal email with your scheduled modification and return ship dates.
