    Comments about MXL 870 Versatile Studio Condenser Microphone:

    I got the microphone this week for Black Friday. It's a really good microphone for the price. I tried it with my art mpc mic pre, and it sounds amazing. I would definitely recommend this mic for beginner or experienced musicians.
