CAD A77BK Large-Diaphragm Dynamic Microphone


Reissuing a classic patented design for its 65th anniversary, CAD has drawn upon this historic design to release the A77Bk, a large-diaphragm dynamic side-address microphone operating in a supercardioid pattern. It is capable of capturing frequencies between 30 Hz and 15 kHz, and can handle sound pressure levels of 150 dB and more. Its vintage design has been given a few updates—a PowerGap high gauss magnet and a TrueFlex diaphragm—in order to bring a modern, articulate profile to the original construction. An ideal mic for recording voice or instruments in either studio or live settings, the stylish, retro-looking CAD A77Bk can deliver winning results.

The A77Bk is a faithful recreation of the classic Astatic A77, with the same timeless style of the original, except for an elegant midnight black finish. CAD chose to update the circuitry for it's 65th anniversary, including a high gauss neodymium magnet and a TrueFlex diaphragm. The update brings modern performance and results in a hot and articulate acoustic profile. With a high max SPL of 150 dB, the A77Bk can be used on loud sound sources without worry, and the high sensitivity makes it quite effective for recording voices whether for talking or singing. Some of the primary applications in which this microphone has been designed for include:

  • Live vocals
  • Studio vocals
  • Acoustic guitar
  • Percussion instruments
  • Voiceovers
  • Broadcast/Podcast
