I've had this mic a couple of years and love it; listing the things I love about it are:

- Great isolation that prevents a great deal of mic bleed experienced with other mics. I've recorded with it in situations where I could hardly hear myself over a loud guitar amp that was 5 feet away and on the play back, the blarring guitar could hardly be heard.

I've also used it for a variety of other applications such as acoustic guitar and overhead drum mic'ing. Stick an SM-57 or SM-58 with the ball off in the cone of your amp and set the V69 2-3 feet behind the SM (picked up a couple of Sennhiesser e609's recently; not tested fully yet. Will say that preliminary results of just tinkering shows that the e609 on it's own is a killer lil mic.) and I have never seen a more accurate reproduction of sound in my 25+ years recording.

The V69 in conjuction with the MXL CR24 Studio Kit's Large Diaphragm mic, equi-distance from the center point of the floor tom and snare (overhead) has produced the most amazing drum recordings; no need for micing every single drum. Cymbals aren't too bright and the results? I can only say, try a similar arrangement yourself and see if it works in your environement.
- Dynamic range... forget about what's on paper, the proof is in the pudding.

I take reviews with a grain of salt to a certain degree, because most people don't know how to actually setup properly and set the levels appropriately (-6db on the VU's please and proper room treatments, hello; give the engineer enough headroom for post and final compression during mastering.). Garbage in garbage out (GIGO).
- Warmth and depth are pristine; no doubt due to the tube. I find the low end response to be a major plus.

Well i bought this from guitar center, after the manager told me this is probably the best mic for me to start off with. well, i've been recording for the past couple of month working on my album and one thing i have noticed alot is that this mic statics up ALOT which is really annoying, and i looked online and alot of reviews online (not on here) say the same thing, everyone or mostly everyone who has this mic has a static issue, i would not recommend this mic to anyone.

Specs close

By Joe Pitonzo

from Tucson, AZ

Comments about MXL V69 Mogami Edition Tube Microphone:

Overlay the U87 frequency response chart with the published specs on this mic and you'll be pleasantly surprised. The only downside and its minor ... there is a sense you are singing into a pillow ... can a mic be a little too 'warm'? Deal for the price!

Comments about MXL V69 Mogami Edition Tube Microphone:

This mic gives great sound for the price. I have had mine for over a couple years and have had zero issues. Recorded well over 200 songs with it and it still works just as good as it did when it was new. Always remember to let your tube mic warm up before use.

24kt. gold

By floyd roberts

from maryland

Comments about MXL V69 Mogami Edition Tube Microphone:

worth its price
Yea it has 24kt. gold , but thats not the reason for the price of this mc. The quality is well worth it ,most ppl i knowhave mics that cost half this but i got this one and you can tell the differenc no matter the amp , just turn knobs on your eq and setup how you want it, I been using it for 3 years. Im now upgrading to neumann tlm-103 but in this price zone the v69 has gotta be at the top of the list maybe not #1 but all around its great especially because of the tube inside of it.

Amazing Mic

By Joshua-MjE1c

from Monterey, CA

Comments about MXL V69 Mogami Edition Tube Microphone:

Absolutely awesome sounding mic.

Had a lot of issues with it at first, trying to get the ground looping to stop. Eventually I just lifted the ground on the mic, problem solved.

Occassionally it gets a little "too airy", which is a minor issue, it tends to happen when you leave it on for too long.

Regardless, amazing sounding microphone. Great price for quality. I highly reccomend it.

Great Mic (for the money)

By Rick Miller

from Northridge ,CA

Comments about MXL V69 Mogami Edition Tube Microphone:

I have been using an Oktava mic that I bought 10 years ago and it never cut the mustard. Because I just used it for demos I never wanted to spend the money on the mic I wanted. Now I have in the last year or so started buying equipment Mac, pro tools, midi controller etc.. I decide I am going to buy a mic, on a budget of $800.00. I went in to Guitar Center and started working with a sales man. I explained what I was looking for and he grabbed several mics some tube, some condensers even a vacuum tube mic. we set up in-front of an m-box mini and without any pre amps or effects we recorded some vocals. (Using the same phrasing and inflection on each mic). Once we finished recording all the mics we went back to listen. Oh my goodness! thats what every one was saying. This mic out preformed mics 2.5 times more expensive and not by a little bit by the truck load. It has a very rich tone and the warmth that you are looking for in a tube mic. This sales man went as far as getting all the other sales man to show them the difference. I have never written a review but this mic at this price deserves a Rave Review! go out and try it like i did you will be surprised.

Excellent Mic

By Randy Stanton

from Centennial, CO

Comments about MXL V69 Mogami Edition Tube Microphone:

I have been using this mic as my "go to" studio mic for about 2 years. I have a mid-range male vocal that is a little scratchy and this was the first mic I have owned that captures my sound and translates it in a rock mix. I use it with a Studio Projects VTB-1. I did have to replace the Shock Mount as it broke when I over tightened it. If it broke I would replace it or try the MXL Genesis if I had a few extra upgrade $$$. Very pleased.

Great Mic

By PitCore

from WesternNC

Comments about MXL V69 Mogami Edition Tube Microphone:

I've used this mic for a number of years now and have never been disappointed. I've used this mic on many instruments and vocals in many different genres. It provides a warmth and texture that's hard to find. My favorite use is to hang it upside down right over a very accurate mic like the Rode NT1A and mix the signals to get just the right sound.

A pleasant Surprise

By TanMar

from NJ

Comments about MXL V69 Mogami Edition Tube Microphone:

I have 6 high end (nuemann,akg, etc) mics, and this is the best one, by far, when recording rappers. Smooth highs, and nice bass, it's well worth the cost...
