White reissue of a studio favorite.
The MXL 990 Condenser Microphone has a silky, sweet high end while retaining tight, solid low and midrange reproduction. The 3/4 in. gold-sputtered diaphragm creates a professional sound suited for digital and analog recording. Attractive vintage body style with champagne finish. The 30 Hz-20 kHz frequency response is ideal for lead and background vocal, male or female. Includes a clip. Remember folks, this mic requires phantom power, so make sure your console or interface delivers it before ordering.
There are a bazillion studio vocal mics on the market that break the magical $100 barrier, a traditionally unheard of price point for a studio vocal mic. Once that price floor was demolished, however, the market became flooded with offerings in the $80 - $100 price range. MXL has emerged as a true leader in this market, and the MXL990 is MXL's flagship product in that category. If a well-built, good-sounding, versatile studio microphone for less than $100 sounds like a good fit for your current needs, you can't go wrong with the MXL990.
