The Cascade Microphones L2 is a stereo large diaphragm condenser microphone that is designed for use in the recording studio. The mic has two separate capsules and all, along with it's own power supply and 5 pin cable. The mic has a frequency response ranging from 30 Hz to 20 kHz and has cardioid, figure eight, and omnidirectional pick up patterns to choose from. The mic also comes with a case and it's own shockmount.

OVERALL OPINION

As far as stereo microphones go, you aren't going to find many of them that are cheaper than the Cascade Microphones L2. More and more you're starting to see microphones like this for cheaper, but I haven't seen many stereo microphones going for this low price. Of course you're getting a cheaply made stereo microphones, but it's a stereo microphone nonetheless and it actually sounds pretty nice. I've only used the L2 as a room microphone while recording a drum kit, but it did a really nice job of picking up the ambient sound in the room, while giving a very nice stereo spread feel. It's nice that you don't have to worry about phasing or anything, so in the future I'd definitely like to try out the L2 as drum overheads as well. I've used a few other microphones from Cascade, but this is probably the best bang for your buck out of any of them I've used. This would be fine in either a professional or home studio, but only in a professional studio if you're going to use it once and a while. If you want a stereo mic to use on a daily basis, I'd recommend something like the Shure VP88 instead, as it sounds better and will last longer. However, if you're interested in a good sounding stereo microphone on the cheap, the L2 is the way to go.
