    Comments about MXL Revelation Tube Condenser Microphone:

    This is a very cool mic with silky smooth sound. You have to play with the variable polar pattern knob to dile in what you want to hear. If you give it to much gain on your pre amp it does get a little noise but it IS a tube mic so that is to be expected.

    Comments about MXL Revelation Tube Condenser Microphone:

    I purchased the MXL Revelation about three months ago to give me one good alternative to my AKG 414 XLII, which is a fabulous mic. Compared to the AKG, the MXL has a bit richer lower mid and a very sweet high end. Upper end clarity and detail are very, very good. I use this mic for vocals, acoustic guitars and for guitar cabs clean channel electric. (For overdrive electric I consistently have the best luck with a small diaphram mic.) If you are after professional results, this mic is the real deal.

    Beautiful All Around Mic

    By Abe Bravo

    from Chandler, AZ

    Comments about MXL Revelation Tube Condenser Microphone:

    I First Got a Chance to Experiance the Sound quality of this mic During a Session with a Friend who was selling it and had me test it out. It was a good looking mic so At fist glance I though maybe it's main value was that of its looks rather than its ability to produce a great sound quality.(which Is usualy the case with Mics Ive delt with, which is that The Box & the mics look is the investment focus rather than investing That money to further the quality of the mics sound it self.) I recorded my verse and instantly was suprized at the quality it produced. I never really was into MXL but this Mic had changed some thoughts I have hade in the past to a postive, degree. Great Sounding, pruduces Smooth and rich Vocals, and Is a Mic to think about when you are working with various Artist or are an artist your self.
