Description
The MXL 990 microphone is a condenser microphone meant for quality professional recording sessions. This MXL microphone features a FET pre amp and contains a well-balanced output. The MXL 990 mic is phantom powered, so its power is delivered through the cables. Unlike some microphones, the MXL 990 doesn't contain an on and off switch. The MXL microphone contains a gold plated plug for high quality and reliable connections. This condenser microphone is cardioid (heart shaped) and contains 200 ohms impedance and a 15 dBm effective output level. This allows it to deliver clear, crisp, and loud sounds, great for personal or professional projects. The microphone is light in weight, weighing just a meager 19.2 oz. The microphone uses a mono audio mode and has a 30 to 20 Hz frequency response. This microphone is capable of professional sound quality, but will also get the job done for amateur uses.

Great mic! I have a wonderful recording studio built in my house. I've been in the business of recording for 30 years. I'm old school and love tube and analogue stuff, though I do use the computer at the tail end of the production for mastering and getting levels correct and straight to disc. With that said, I am a collector of microphones. I have a vast array of condensers, but I'm always searching for more. Condensers have this inane ability of never sounding the same from day to day. One degree of difference in temperature, the ionizers not being on, the fans at different speeds, one too many people in the sound booth, whatever, and you lose that flavor you had of your great sounding mic from a day ago. (I bet no one ever mentioned this, huh?) Well, that's where jumping in with a quick replacement helps. I drive all my lead vocal mics through tube preamps and a symtrex vocal processor (used in most radio stations). I get a great sound out of most of my condenser mics and a few of my dynamic mics too. When I received this MXL990, I simply set it aside and added it to my arsenal. I was prepping for backgrounds on the new 'Dreamscapers' CD, and suddenly remembered the 990. I took it out of the box (packed nicely with its shock mount)and decided to give a go. Wow! Great sound. Great 4 tracks of takes. This mic holds its own. Granted, it isn't a Neumann or AKG, but if you're a vocalist, then make it sound good! This mic won't work you like some other under $100 condensers. It's crisp and a tight mic. Most of the MXL stuff (it's Marshall's line of mics)is pretty good stuff. You will not lose your money on this mic. (Not like some other inexpensive unknown China condensers. Save your money there.)Well, that's my take. I give two thumbs up to the MXL 990.

As a musician, I have sang and spoken into a lot of different microphones over the years. I was looking for a good microphone that I could use for both speech and vocals. I ran into a video about this mic on YouTube and when I found out how cheap it was, I was in disbelief. Upon further research, I was amazed at the quality, so I ordered one.

This mic seems too good to be true. I don't know how they can sell it for so cheap, because it is an amazing microphone. For one thing, it's built like a rock. When you hold it in your hand, you know that it is a quality piece of equipment. Furthermore, it has a sound that is just as solid as it's construction, yet retains a delicate and smooth high end. I would have no problem comparing it to microphones that are worth three times the price, or even more. Before I bought it, I did a lot of research and listened to many popular mics, and this mic won hands down. It's a great all purpose microphone, meaning that when used up close, it has a great bottom end for that real "radio" sound. Move back a bit and it's a beautiful vocal microphone with crisp highs and solid tone all the way down the spectrum. It doesn't require any EQ at all. I would much rather own four of these than one higher priced mike. They really did a fine job with this one, and I have not one negative thing to say about it.

MXL 990 - A High Quality Condenser Microphone For The Home Recording Studio

 | Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

This High Quality and low cost microphone works Great! If you are on a budget and still want a microphone that sounds fantastic, the MXL 990 is an excellent choice!

The version I purchased came in a decent carry case with the suspension and rigid mounts. I use it with a Yamaha Audiogram6 digital mix board with built-in phantom microphone power supply.

I use the setup to record vocal, guitar, and various flutes with excellent results. Perfect for the home recording studio!
