      Comments about MXL 990s Patriot Limited Edition Condenser Microphone:

      I use the microphone to mic my acoustic resonator guitar. The sensitivity is amazing and reproduces the sound better than expected. The signal is clean and I send it through my sub-mixer and looper. Love the Patriot colors. Received it just in time for my July 4th gig.

      Comments about MXL 990s Patriot Limited Edition Condenser Microphone:

      Here's a perfect sweet sounding microphone for voice over and broadcast announcing work. Hard to beat a 990 mic. Relly don't need the cut off switch or the -20db switch but wow...what a bargain! Guitar Center also has superior customer service and super fast shipping. This is my second order and I'm sure they'll be more!

        This mic might look funny. But. Sound Quality is great for the price. Picked up 3 of these for our podcast and couldn't be happier. After getting them setup and dialed in we've had great results.

                Comments about MXL 990s Patriot Limited Edition Condenser Microphone:

                MXL took a fine Mic, their 990, and celebrated Armed Forces Day, Memorial Day, Flag Day, Independence Day, Election Day, Veterans Day and any other patriot holiday you'd like to add in. They brought us an excellent choice of microphone that is known for it's sound and physical stability. In short, this mic meets the MXL standard - and it's MXL-Ready! This is a great way to commemorate America. I bought three initially. I like them so well, I'm going to add at least two more.

                I hope they do something similar with the Maple Leaf, and the Union Jack.
