Product# H74957
OVERVIEW

Application-specific condenser mic with optimized EQ curve to record electric guitars with punch and presence.

The Guitar Cube Pro is identical to MXL's Drum Cube Pro (see H74956), but comes with a chrome finish and EQ curve optimized for electric guitar recording. The Guitar Cube Pro is the perfect solution for capturing or recording guitars on stage, but also vocals too. The Guitar Cube Pro provides a 6-micron gold sputtered diaphragm and a 20Hz-20kHz frequency range. Placement near a stack is made possible thanks to its 140dB SPL range and ability to handle the heaviest metal or rock music. The small design of the Guitar Cube Pro allows for tight placement on stage or in the studio. Each microphone comes with hardmount clip and pouch.

* Requires 48-volt phantom power to operate.

FEATURES
  • EQ curve specially contoured for electric guitar recording

If sound and fury is what you're going for, order a Guitar Cube Pro today!

Comments about MXL Guitar Cube Pro:

I bought this and let it sit in the Studio for about 3 months before I went to use it. The first time I took it out of the box to use it sounded horrible. We thought maybe it was too close to the amp and moved it back and it still sounded horrible. Then we got no signal, and thats when it went into door stop mode.

Would not recommend.

Comments about MXL Guitar Cube Pro:

The sound is OK, but nothing to write home about; the body is heavy and difficult to operate and set up, and, after about year, you can expect it to just die for no reason. One day it works, the next it's paperweight. All in all, a piece of junk.

Broken

Pros

    Cons

    • Bulky/Heavy
    • Hard Distorsion
    • Poor Sound Quality

    Best Uses

      Comments about MXL Guitar Cube Pro:

      Hard Distorsion and occures for signals above 4 dB on one side of the sinusoid only. Seems like the membrane is hitting end stop. This is not cardoid response.

      This mic is intended to take a lot of punch. It may be just broken mic.

        Comments about MXL Guitar Cube Pro:

        This mic sounds amazingly clear and articulate. Unlike many mic's that dramatically color the sound and are extremely directional this mic reproduces EXACTLY what you're hearing in the studio with no need to do little more than just set it in front of the cabinet. This mic has rendered my old Suhr SM-57 obsolete. No more spending hours tweaking and trying to find the perfect mic angle, height, position, etc, etc, etc, trying to get my recordings to sound like what I was hearing in the room. Just set the Cube Pro in front of the cabinet and viola'! You've got it! And a stupid good deal with the Stupid Deal" of the day here at MF!

          Comments about MXL Guitar Cube Pro:

          I got a new cabinet and wanted to reproduce the sound faithfully, hence the large diaphram condenser. The Cube is excellant. Placed properly (6-8" away), the sound is very 3D, and captures the nuances of the guitar and cabinet.
          As with any condenser, you have to treat it with love and avoid bouncing it around. But the sound is well worth the effort.

            I love this mic! It has been in use ever since I got it. The sound quality is amazing weather your recording loud or quiet. The sound comes through crisp and clear. The design is perfect. It presses nicely right up to the amp. It's a perfect little mic!

                I've used this mic for both vocals and indie-rock style guitar recording...and the sounds (both loud and quiet) I've captured with it are simply wonderful. At this price-point...I cannot possibly recommend it enough!
