Performs above price point!

By 

from Portage, Indiana

Great sounding mic for under $200.00, I mean for $130.00 (I should have waited a few days to order, I paid $199.99) I put it in front of my Carvin V3 & Carvin 4x12 cab and cranked the volume. Sounds excellent blended with a Sure SM57. Also put it at the 12th fret of my acoustic and a Blue Blue Bird at the bridge, sounds warm and full. Don't let the low price fool you, MXL puts out quality mic's built to last. I own several MXL's and treated with respect they will last a long time.
