The Nandy Center Stage microphone is a Neodymium Dynamic Microphone. It comes with a stand that can adjust up to 6 ft 4 in. The stand has a tripod base and a clip to hold the microphone. The construction is all metal and the mic has an external on/off switch. The stand also comes with a 20 ft cord. The microphone itself has a high-output neodymium cartridge which gives it excellent definition and clarity even in a less than quiet environment.
It also has a unidirectional cardioid pattern which helps with reducing feedback. The internal cartridge mount is designed to minimize the handling noise. The mic also deals with high sound pressure levels without distorting or overloading. This unit can be used with any standard mixer, powered mixer/amp or mic preamp.
The main problem with the Center Stage seems to be the poor quality of the microphone housing. Some of them fall apart or break before, at, or soon after arrival. Mostly it is the head of the microphone detaching itself from the body of the mic or the mesh coming apart. The cord also has a tendency to disconnect from the mic. Every once in a while the cord will just not work at all or the wires inside the mic will be disconnected or broken.
The microphones can be fixed or replaced fairly easily if there is a problem with them. Plenty of customers are completely happy with their mics. And the stand is excellent quality. Many customers have reported that they bought the pack for the stand itself. Stands alone are hard to find. When the mic works, the quality of the sound and pickup are excellent. All the internal components work beautifully to produce a clear amplification without feedback or noise. The Nandy Center Stage is well packed and arrives without problems. The adjustable stand makes it appropriate for all ages and most heights. The mic clip is sturdy but still allows the mic to be removed easily. And the long cord allows the singer a wide range of movement around the room or stage.
The Nandy Center Stage microphone is a great deal for the money. The stand is excellent and while the microphone may be a gamble, the majority of customers were more than happy with it. It is a great setup for kids and anyone who wants to rock out with friends at their house or anywhere there is electricity and an amp. While not for professionals, the overall quality is great.
