From the Manufacturer
GXL2200 Cardioid Condenser Microphone
The GXL2200 condenser mic from CAD Audio is inspired cosmetically, mechanically, and electrically by early generations of European masters. Features include (but are not limited to) an internal hi-pass filter. An elastic shock mount and protective pouch are included. P48 (48V) phantom power is required.
Condenser-Style Microphone for Instrument Recording
The CAD Audio GXL2200 condenser microphone consists of a thin conductive membrane stretched very close to a stationary plate. High voltage is applied between the membrane and the plate. As the membrane vibrates, electrons move. These moving electrons are sensed as voltage. This voltage can be strengthened (but not necessarily increased) by silicon.
The cardioid polar pattern is ideal for recording both vocals and instruments, particularly for isolated tracks, but it also works well for live applications. Use condenser mics to get a clear directional recording of studio vocals, voice-over work, choirs, acoustic instruments, strings, piano, and cymbals/overheads.
Included Shock Mount and Carrying Pouch
The GXL2200 comes complete with an elastic shock mount and a protective carrying pouch for easy transport and set up. (A mic stand is not included.)

I'am a Song composer as well as a singer.
I use this great microphone for recording almost everything.
with this mic i will say "made me sound like 'ME' "
They have good 'presence' even if the sound source is as far as 2 feet away.
This is just an all-around good mic with great sound for the cost.
*Just be aware that this mic requires 48 volt 'phantom power' to operate. So you have to use something like an M-Audio USB prepay/interface or Scarlett audio interface so that it can provide the Phantom Power to the mic. This mic will NOT work with a portable tape recorder or a Public Address Amplifier without inserting a Phantom Power Supply in the line.
Also, it comes with a shock mount for a reason. This is NOT intended to be a handheld microphone. It will pick up every thump, bump, and slide motion made by a person's hands. It NEEDS to mounted on a mic stand WITH the shock mount. Otherwise it will pick up vibrations from people walking on the floor. It is VERY sensitive. I can use it in my living room to record the wind chimes out on my front porch 40 feet away.
As for vocals, it will give a good amount of base as well as the high frequencies (Frequency response: 30Hz to 20kHz
Sensitivity: -36dBV (16mV) at 1 Pa). It has a cardioid polar pattern.
I once recorded a friend playing piano, but before we could get started we had to shut off her refrigerator in the kitchen and unplug her electric clock because this mic could hear the clock motor humming (which we could not hear with our normal ears).
I would say the quality is as good as the AT 2020 (AT 2020 is slightly better but keeping cost in mind!)
The internal noise is very low because of a very good pre-amp (no need to add more gain in the audio interface)
But if you want to pickup every nuance of an acoustic guitar being played .... THIS is the right mic for it!
Note : It looks sexy in that Champagne finished body :D
