  • Not a Neumann, but you can't beat the value!

    As reviewed by david SURRATT on 10/25/2006

    I was very surprised when I first used this mic. I have used it in Live Sound situations and in the studio and it's a great mic period! It is not as transparent as a lot of the higher priced condensors but it's saturation isn't horrible either. I noticed that it has a lot of boosted high end which works out great for acoustic guitars and female vocals. I also like to use it on my electric guitar when I need a really "defined" sound. It is a very decent overhead mic and actually works fairly well on toms for some reason. I turn to this mic primarily for acoustic guitars.

  • MXL mic

    As reviewed by Ringo on 11/2/2006

    This mic, for the price is unbeatable. The quality and feel of it isnt sooo great, but compared to others in this price range you cannot beat it. The sound is amazing, again for the price. I personally own this, and I think its a great deal. So what are you waiting for? Stop reading this and do the checkout!

  • Unbeatable Mic

    As reviewed by Evan Walton on 7/17/2013

    This mic is amazing! I've used tons of other mics in my day and this is definitely one of the best out there. For the price, it is unbeatable and sounds just like some of the more expensive mics. It is ideal for anyone's home-studio. Sounds great on acoustic guitars - very crisp sound. Amazing for vocals, and even sounds great as an overhead drum mic. I definitely recommend this mic to anyone looking for an amazing inexpensive mic.
