This mic was a pleasant surprise. I originally expected this mic to be a extra mic in my studio in case I needed something different or something happened to one of my usual mics. After testing the mic I found that it is great for vocal work. Now I have 3 of these mics and I use it for recording vocals 95% of the time. This mic has a very clear and defined sound to it which is exactly what I like. I also love using this mic on acoustic guitars. I find that this mic is the most used mic in my project studio, I assure you that you can not go wrong by having one in your studio (which is why I have 3).

The mic is very bright, kind of harsh on certain type of vocals. On very soft tones it works fine, but if there's a heavier voice, it gets rougher. Compared it with other 300-600 dollar mics in my studio - good extra overhead etc mic for 100 bucks, but definitely sticking to my old mics for lead vocals.

Good Value for a Mic!

By Dulcimerist

from Billings, MT

Comments about MXL V63M Condenser Studio Microphone with Shockmount:

The MXL V63M is the first mic I ever purchased, as my budget wouldn?t allow for anything fancier. This product is built sturdy, and sounds pretty good. The addition of the shockmount in this package is very nice, as you really need one whenever you use a condenser mic. I run this through an ART tube preamp, which gives the MXL V63M a nicer tone. For better clarity and crispness on vocals, I did later purchase an MXL 2003, which sounds amazingly better than the MXL V63M. In comparison, the V63M sounded as if it had a blanket put over it. In hindsight, I should?ve invested a bit extra for the MXL 2003 to begin with, and I would highly recommend that route to others as well.

Best Mic for the Price

Comments about MXL V63M Condenser Studio Microphone with Shockmount:

This thing sounds awesome for a mic at this price. It is REALLY sensitive and picks up everything. I use it for vocals and recording acoustic guitar and bass live. Couldn't be happier.

cost effective

By Michael Frann

from Baltimore, Maryland

Comments about MXL V63M Condenser Studio Microphone with Shockmount:

I am very much satisfied with the MXL V63M microphones. I had been interested in MXL 2003 although while searching the internet I read that the V63M was designed in close association with the 2003. The stereo field is much more saturated than with Shure BG 4.1 that I had been using etc. There is more resolution on high frequencies. Much of the progress I have made in the past has been parametric with upgrades in recording components. The V63M is a cost effective solution for acoustic guitar.

Great for the price

By Heron Johnson

from Arlington, Tx

Comments about MXL V63M Condenser Studio Microphone with Shockmount:

I've been using this mic for about a month now and it's been used to record acoustic and electric guitar and bass, male and female vocals, drums, and cello. So far it has been very accurate in picking up what I need it to. My only complaint is with the shockmount, it isn't as loose as it needs to be to do its job. Aside from that I would very much recomend buying this mic if your budget doesn't allow for anything more expensive or if you are just trying to record a good quality demo.

Affordable price, delivers.

By mike

from detroit, mi

Comments about MXL V63M Condenser Studio Microphone with Shockmount:

I'm surprised this is $100 now, when I bought it the going rate was about $70 new! It's still worth the money. I do enjoy this microphone. I have a Shure Sm7b and since I don't have a decent high gain preamp for it yet, I'm still using this mic for vocals. I never write reviews on products, but I just thought about it today and decided to do it. This mic is really perfect for a home studio enthusiast. Hip hop, rnb, soul, blues, funk. that's the kinda stuff i put through this mic and i have no complaints.

The Best Choice for Beginner Studio Recording!

By Joshua Herbert

from Port Huron, Michigan

Comments about MXL V63M Condenser Studio Microphone with Shockmount:

This is probably by far the best price you can play for a great Condenser Microphone for any beginner recording artist. You can pretty much do anything with it if you put your mind to it! This microphone sounds better than any other dynamic microphone that you could use! I would recommend this Microphone to anyone for a beginner recording artist! And it's a well deserving 5 star microphone! Greatest Choice ever! You can not go wrong with it! :)

Excellent bluegrass and solo mic

By Kenton

from Woodstock, GA

Comments about MXL V63M Condenser Studio Microphone with Shockmount:

It is difficult to find a live mic that will cover both live acoustic and vocal performance, especially when you have to run mix yourself onstage. This mic keeps things simple, good balance and sensitivity, low feedback on the back lobe. If you are a one-man show, this is a good choice, and best of all, it doesn't cost an arm and a leg.

The Price is Right for this Mic

By Chris

from Chicago, IL

Comments about MXL V63M Condenser Studio Microphone with Shockmount:

This microphone is more than its worth. I had bought all equipment needed to start recording previously and so when I got home and hit the record button, what I got was a very clear and concise sound. I have a basic in-home studio set up in my room so I don't exactly have a "dead room" to record in but the way this carded mic picks up straight on sound and minimizes background sound is extremely useful and impressive. I literally recorded an entire song with the tv on 5 feet away and all I could hear in the playback was my voice and practically nothing else. That's great quality for for the price. If I had to make a complaint though, I would say that some times in the play back my voice would be distorted and some words would be completely unheard and at other times it would be completely fine. It's kind of unpredictable and its' really just a guessing game when you hit the play button. Other than that, this mic is definitely worth the money and I would say it's a wise choice for the money-conscious budget buyer. Enjoy Recording.

GREAT MIC FOR THE PRICE.

By samuel curcio

from woodbridge n.j

Comments about MXL V63M Condenser Studio Microphone with Shockmount:

I own several mic's and the V-63 stands right up with them. this mic will deliver whether your singing a ballad or screaming to hard rock. The V-63 does such a nice job, that you will find using less E.Q. because of a better recorded vocal.

Great for Cleans

By Marcella Stucker

from Lemoore, CA

Comments about MXL V63M Condenser Studio Microphone with Shockmount:

I bought this mic about 2 weeks ago and I finally got to test it yesterday. This thing is amazing for clean singing. My band plays with cleans, screaming, and heavy thrash style vocals, and altho this makes the cleans sound amazing, the screams and thrash will overcomp every single time. From even over 6 feet away the loud vocals just will not work with this mic. Don't get me wrong, this thing is like a dream for clean singing. And if that is what you are planning on recording. The for the love of god...BUY IT! If not, well just keep on lookin.

One versatile mic!

By marlon lim

from San Dimas Cali

Comments about MXL V63M Condenser Studio Microphone with Shockmount:

This condenser mic is really awesome for recording vocals! You can also use this mic to record acoustic instrument as well. It's also very affordable considering the average price range of all the other marketed condenser mics. The shock mount on the other hand wasn't very durable. The screw that tightens the handle breaks really easily. But that can be replaced, no problem. One thing that this mic cannot do is mic up guitar amps live. This was the only mic I had at the time and the MXLV62M is waaay too sensitive for high gain playing. I mean you can do it, you just have to dial the gain really low on the mixing board, but then you lose your sound in the mix. Good mic overall though.

MXL V63M Condenser Studio Microphone with Shockmount

By Timothy Miller

from burlington ky

Comments about MXL V63M Condenser Studio Microphone with Shockmount:

this is the first microphone that i have ever purchased and i have to say for the money that your spending for the quality your getting an awesome deal I've recorded with usb mics before and they don't do a justice unless your using them to record instruments when your recording vocals this is the way to go for this type of price and the shock mount is basic but its a bonus it helps alot i might be a beginner recording vocals ive been using a rock band mic for about a year for most of my recordings and when i recorded my old songs with this mic i cant describe to you the difference the only problem that i have with it is that it is really sensitive but if you know what your doing you can make some awesome music and the warranty for the price is a good offer to have all together with the mic shock mount carrying case and a couple more essentials along with the warranty i think total i spent $125 dollars around that and with all of my friends that record music around here there mics that they pay 100s of dollars for is no where compared to this one from what they say so if you want my opinion this mic is excellent for the price 5 stars just needs a little tuning

Great mic...fast delivery

By Keith Tede

from Blue Springs, MO

Comments about MXL V63M Condenser Studio Microphone with Shockmount:

This is a great mic for studio work. It's a condenser so it is very sensitive. You'll need a real "Quiet" room to record with it. I was recording in my upstairs studio and my wife walked by the staircase downstairs and said something. I couldn't hear it very clearly but the mic picked it up and on playback, I could very plainly hear what she said. The coolest thing about this order was...I got the mic the day after I ordered it. Ordered on Thurs. Next morning I got on USPS website just to see if the tracking number would show up yet. It stated that it was on the truck for delivery. I couldn't believe it. It showed up later that day.
