These mics are perfect for just about anything. Drums, Guitars, Vocals, anything! A little EQ is needed of course as with most mics, but once they're set, they sound awesome. As with any condenser, you do need a silent room or it will pick up a fan blowing from across the room. Overall these mics are exceptionally good at a great price!

I've owned the 990 for over a year now and overall it has been a good mic. I've kept the mic inside of it's padded case when not in use, and it has recently started acting up, the diaphram has come loose some how and makes alot of noise if it's not perfectly positioned. Considering the price for the two mic package, it is a good value. Not much for craftsmanship.

Comments about MXL 990/993 Studio Package:

This is a great mic for a cheap price. I love its clear sound. It is great for a fist time recorder or someone who is looking to start a home studio. I have 2 sets of these and they are going strong after 3 years. The case is sturdy also that they came in. The only problem I have is I pick up radio signals sometimes but I do live by a lot of towers.

GREAT PACKAGE

By DJ Savra

from Mesa, AZ

Comments about MXL 990/993 Studio Package:

What a great package for the price. Seriously. They may not be "top-of-the-line", but that doesn't mean that this little bundle doens't deliver good results. Just make sure you use them with some good mic preamps to maximize their potential.

Great pair of mics

By Stegosaurus Rex-B_2pE

from Berkeley, CA

Comments about MXL 990/993 Studio Package:

I bought this mainly because I needed a cheap vocal mic, but I also wanted something that I could record instruments later on. The 990 is a fair vocal mic, but lacks enough high end. However, for anyone that does any work on recording, this is easily fixed by adding a bit using EQ. Doing this, I found the 990 to be very usable and clear. The 993 is also very clear sounding on guitars, though I haven't tried drums yet. For the money, this is very much worth it. Just make sure you know what you're doing when you process the audio from these mics, and you'll be getting some sweet sounds!

Worth the price

By Pauly-QLbbM

from Racine, Wi.

Comments about MXL 990/993 Studio Package:

These are not top of the line studio microphones, but for the price they are phenomenal. The 993 is by far the better of the pair, and it delivers great sound as a drum overhead or at the twelfth fret of an acoustic (gets boomy near the soundhole, but the 990 can hold its own. Quality gets a downgrade as when I received the 990 there was a capsule mounting screw that had come loose and was rolling free inside the screen. I put that back in and other than a rather vanilla frequency response and slight warm up period to clear out the hum the mic has been great ever since.

990 - Vocals, Room / 993 - Overheads, Crash, HH

Comments about MXL 990/993 Studio Package:

I love this both mics. I use the 990 to record the vocals or i use it to record the bassdrum. It also sound quiet well as a ambient mic for drums, when you use it as a mono mic.The MXL is good for all cymbals. I love it at the high hat or at the acoustic guitar.

Great Value... Great product

By Sardar2020

from Rockaway, New Jersey

Comments about MXL 990/993 Studio Package:

Okay I have been recording for some time now. I've seen top of the line and low end garbage. Here is a product that delivers at a great value. Know what your buying and what to expect of it and you won't be diappointed. This is a product that gives you performance that you would expect to pay more for. No it isn't top of the line but with some adjustments you can get great, close to studio performance from this product. I do recomend it to the buyer who knows what to do with it. Thanks Guys Sandar

Very Usable

By SoundMan-aHWKr

from Rock Island, IL

Comments about MXL 990/993 Studio Package:

Both these mics sound good. the 993 is a bit more full in the low mids compared to an sm81. the 990 has a lot of depth in the low mids as well, but thats good for a larger diaphram. I've used them for a live accoustic set and they sound great. I've also recorded with them double micing an accoustic guitar and they sound pretty good at that. Really great buy for a budget studio or beginner, or even just having a couple extras around.

MXL's excellent offer

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about MXL 990/993 Studio Package:

My nephew in Texas was interested in starting his own recording studio in his house, but was on a limited budget for mics and other recording equipment. Thus, he purchased this mic package. On a vacation to their house, i was able to test them out. As most people would be, I was skeptical at first, but when I tested them I was pleasantly surprised. The 993, when used properly (in this case as an overhead for his drum set) produced a clear and resonant sound. As for the vocal condenser mic, I was also surprised by the quality of the sound of the mic; the sound reproduction was something I would expect out of a much more expensive microphone. MXL has really offered one amazing deal for someone interested in starting their own home studio.
