MXL DX-2® Dual Capsule Variable Dynamic Instrument Microphone


collapse expand iconDescription

The MXL DX-2 is the first dual capsule dynamic microphone that allows you to tailor the sound from one capsule to the other and all points in between, so that you can easily customize your sound. The front of the microphone is a flat-faced, side-address design which places the microphone capsules close to the sound for optimal pickup, while the opposite side has the crossfade knob, making adjustments a breeze. Capsule 1's super-cardioid large-capsule design captures the warmth and fullness of your instrument while Capsule 2's cardioid small capsule offers superb midrange and high-end detail.
