The MXL Genesis is a masterfully engineered tube microphone with features and performance levels found in mics priced thousands of dollars more. From intimate vocal recordings to fast-attacking rap, the Genesis cuts beautifully through the mix with spectacular detail. Recording professionals and musicians are praising the Genesis for its clean highs, warm mids, and tight bottom-end, features attributed in part to the genuine Mullard 12AT7 tube.

    So Far Used in Studio and some Mobile Recording Setups. Be sure to warm Tube for at least 30 minutes to get optimum results. This Microphone is a Great Edition to any Studio. It is a high quality Product.

        Comments about MXL Genesis Studio Tube Condenser Microphone:

        I have used this Microphone in The Studio for My Sax and Have never regretted Buying it from GC.
        Even before It was fully broken in reproduced Wonderful Sounds and it really can stack up against Microphones that are Much More Expensive. It works well for Vocals too and whatever else You are trying to capture. Out of a long list of Great Microphones, This one is on that list. We Used it on One production called "New York in December" that can be found on Youtube.only for My Sax and That is an example of it being used in an actual full Mix. I plan on Keeping it to Use for many applications.I have gotten Good results with it.

          Comments about MXL Genesis Studio Tube Condenser Microphone:

          This is a great mic lot's of haters because it's MXL don't always blame the mic. Check you signal chain and pre amp as well as the acoustic treatment/placement as well. You can use it on vocals and other instruments as i have this mic sounds great and i would recommend this to anyone. While trying to compare this to mics that cost thousands more would be silly it can compare to some much higher priced mics. Overall i am very happy with this and use this as one of my primary vocal mics.

          Pure tube sound

          By StudioRyde

          from Montreal, Canada

          Comments about MXL Genesis Studio Tube Condenser Microphone:

          I have an Apex 460. The Genesis is more silky and true for vocals, exactly what I wanted. Cardioid only, not a problem for me. The power supply is a little bit noisy and the Mogami cord is only 15' long though. An excellent vocal microphone that I strongly recommend.

          Good Deal, Great Mic

          By Bad Apple

          from Houston Texas

          Comments about MXL Genesis Studio Tube Condenser Microphone:

          I bought this mic based solely on user reviews, I love the way it sounds. Thanks for the reviews, glad I listened. this mic is great for voice overs, and for rich vocals. Not as true to sound as I was hoping for, but for the price it is hard to beat. It looks beautiful, and is just a good bargain. The pop filter that comes with this is useless as far as I am concerned, I use it purely to set the distance for a real pop screen, strongly recommended

          Comments about MXL Genesis Studio Tube Condenser Microphone:

          The MXL Genesis is definitely an awesome Mic. Wow, for this affordable price you get warm BIG and Versatile. Apply the genesis to a guitar to vocals or brass instruments and you will be a happy person no joke. This tube treat is a must get. And it looks classy, your clients will be impressed. I have used this at every session since I bought it and I am so happy with mic. I have an apogee interface i run it through and it gets a wonderful warm and pure sound. GET THIS if you value quality.

          Solid mic

          By Tone Chaser-4MW56

          from Nashville

          Comments about MXL Genesis Studio Tube Condenser Microphone:

          This is a good mic... I would compare it to the Rode NTK... However, it does not compete with the Neumann u87, an AKG C12, or even mics like the Rode Classic II. But, for the price you are getting a solid mic that will perform well on acoustic instruments and vocals.
