Comments about MXL R77 Studio Ribbon Microphone:

If nothing else, this microphone is a showpiece.

I'll probably upgrade it with a Lundhal transformer.

My first test of this microphone surprise me as to how much
output the mic has. Typically not use to that with a ribbon.

It lacks high end as a Ribbon does. I'm not convinced that
the mic holds its response out to 18k, however, the mic
accepts eq very well, unlike some other ribbons I own.

The build quality is very nice, however don't expect the wood box to
be nice. Both boxes for 2 mics were cracked and falling
apart.

The small tabletop stand is awesome and will be very useful
in my studio.

Ribbon mics are so much fun

By I love this mic

from Brookings Oregon

Comments about MXL R77 Studio Ribbon Microphone:

This is my second ribbon mic. I also have a Nady RSM 2. They sound similar with this one edging out the Nady. I love the mellow sound this mic yields and how you can drastically change the tone by tipping the mic forward or cupping the back side with your hand. Sounds great as a vocal mic and can really "calm down" an acoustic 12 string guitar.

Don't listen to other reviewer

By JJ-EsM5g

from Ventura, CA

Comments about MXL R77 Studio Ribbon Microphone:

I've had the pleasure of using the MXL R77 for about a month now. Having previously used a Royer 121 and a sE RNR1 I know how a high end ribbon mic should sound, and to be honest for $399 the R77 is a steal. Sounding more like a Royer than the RNR1 this mic truly captures all the round warmth you want from a ribbon. I use it mostly on electric guitars running into a Blue Robbie Mic pre and it really shines giving you a full creamy tone. I'm new to the MXL line, but recently required a Genesis and Revelation, both very great mics as well. If you haven't used an MXL or are afraid of venturing into the "chinese" made microphone world, do not let the negative feedback affect you, this mic is a solid build that offers VERY solid performance at a modest price.

Great!

By Brandon-DD_LX

from Los Angeles

Comments about MXL R77 Studio Ribbon Microphone:

Great mic! I have a collection of about 12 ribbon mics, and love this one. Low output, (use a Triton audio fethead, or Rode D-power plug for 20dB of extra output) Throw in around 5dB of 10k on your eq and you're good to go! Sounds amazing on the 12th fret of an acoustic pointed slightly @ the sound hole!

Great Unique Sound.

By Erik

from Appleton, WI

Comments about MXL R77 Studio Ribbon Microphone:

All microphone lockers should have at least one ribbon mic. They can add a totally unique character to a recorded sound and this one is no exception. The R77 adds a really airy and open sound to anything it is picking up. Because it's a ribbon, it has excellent transient response, so you can be sure that it will pick up everything it was meant to. While in the studio, I always turn to this mic for vocals and acoustic guitar as well as the occasional guitar cab. And at the price? You can't go wrong.

SAVE YOUR MONEY

Comments about MXL R77 Studio Ribbon Microphone:

Save your money and go get a Cascade Fat Head II with the upgraded transformer. Its cheaper than this piece and you will be way happier with the Fat Head.
