Comments about MXL 920 Large-Capsule Condenser Microphone:

I picked this up during a sale here. The mic I had previously ordered isn't going to be available until May so I went ahead and got this.

My only real issue with it is that the mic cable comes loose from the base at times. It's really not the most secure fit.

Other than that though I haven't had any issues with it.

    These are nice mics to use for drum overheads. They blow away the CAD mic's that I have.

        Comments about MXL 920 Large-Capsule Condenser Microphone:

        I have a small home recording studio, a Tascam DP-25, Roland & M-Audio monitors and an ART MP Studio V3 pre amp. I use to just use a Shure 57 for recording my Fender De Ville amp but Musician Friend had this MXR 920 for only fifty. I bought it out of impulse to maybe compliment my Shure 57, for only fifty how could I go wrong. Turns out that I am very happy with this mic. It helps balance out my guitar tracks as I can record a single track in stereo now that I have 2 mics.

        I'm sure for pro use this microphone would be a poor choice but as for my home studio it makes be very happy. And for fifty you really cant go wrong. The only downside is that the clip it comes with doesn't seem to be as sturdy as other condensor microphone holders. I may want to invest in another clip one of these days.

          Comments about MXL 920 Large-Capsule Condenser Microphone:

          I recently used these as a pair of overheads for a drum recording. The tracks were super smooth and didn't have that clanky sound that come with using cheaper type small diaphragm mics. I was so impressed by the sound I immediately bought 2 more while the price is this good.

            This microphone delivers a very nice sound. I can only imagine what it sounds like with Mogami cables, as it is already amazing.

            Comments about MXL 920 Large-Capsule Condenser Microphone:

            I purchased one of these mics a while ago and then sold it because it wasn't a very good mic. It's basically a large diaphragm version of the MXL 900. I decided later on to get a pair of them on a SDOTD and sent them over to Michael Joly at Oktavamod. I'm still waiting on the finished product but I have heard great things from the service and the mic.

              Comments about MXL 920 Large-Capsule Condenser Microphone:

              I bought this for like 80% off as a Stupid Deal of the Day, with the intent of shipping it off directly to Michael Joly at oktavamods dot com. He has a mod for this mic which makes this mic sound a LOT like a U67; no joke. So, for the original cost of the mic, I got the mic PLUS the modification from Mr. Joly. GREAT deal. I'm not sure if I would spend the full price for this mic; there are other better mics that cost just a bit more than this one that sound great without modification. (For clarity's sake, I only would recommend this to a friend if it was at the super-low price at which I bought it such that they could take the cash they saved and have it modified.)
