Nady PCM-100 Professional Classic Style Condenser Microphone

Gearank Recommendation

The Nady PCM-100 appeared on our recommended list for Condenser Mics Under $100 from February 2018 until it was removed in October 2019 when it had been out-ranked by other mics.


One look at the Nady PCM-100 and you'll understand why its popular - it is a cool looking mic that comes with a very affordable price tag.

And with that form factor, it is meant to be a stage microphone for use with vocal performers, but there are some who have put it to good use in recording as well.

It has a frequency response of 30Hz to 18kHz which is quite limited, but this limitation gives the mic its distinct presence peak that many prefer. It also has a switchable low-cut filter that allows for low end adjustments when needed.

If you're looking for a budget alternative to the classic rock microphone, then check out the Nady PCM-100.
