Sounds better than my NT1-A. Warmer tone. I put it against a modified MXL 990 with and upgraded K47 capsule and the V63M hangs in there. I compared it to a AT2035 and the low and mids sound better but the high end wasn't as defined. I just push the upper level of the EQ and problems solved. You will have to spend atleast 300 to get a microphone that is noticably better. It's noticably better than the stock 990. Sounds good on voice and it picks up the guitar combo amp great when placed about a foot away. I wasted so much time and money trying different microphones. I should have just stayed with this. When I have 500-1000 I'll try some top end ones. But for now this is my go to microphone (or in a joking manner, until a label signs me up)

This mic is average. It produces a very clear sound (probably due to the Mogami wiring inside) I'll give it that, but it's a very bright mic, to put it nicely. It's rather tinny and without proper eq or a good preamp, you just won't get that great of a sound from it. If you're dead set on getting this mic, get it when it goes on a good sale, which happens pretty often. This is mic is not worth the retail price for sure (in fact, I'd go for a 2001 series which goes for around the same or less and sounds way better in my opinion).

    Comments about MXL V63M Condenser Studio Microphone:

    I have used two v63 mics on toms in my studio for ten years now, they have been hit more times than I can count, they sound nice and natural, and have a very predictable pattern.
    I love the mics

      Best Uses

        Comments about MXL V63M Condenser Studio Microphone:

        I bought this mic almost 5 years ago, and have used it pretty consistently, recording in a home studio. I've worked with more expensive mics in music and voice studios over the last 15 years. What you are recording determines 90% of the sound quality, any mic just helps you shape how it gets recorded. Overall, it is a great value. It's not anything close to a world-class mic, but if you know how to work with what it does, it can be a very useful tool for the price. The most important frequency range (the middle) is pretty well captured with this mic. I find I have to EQ the high end down, sometimes quite a bit, to get this mic to sound "natural," or to recreate what I hear with my ears, espcially for miking any cymbals. That isn't bad, sometimes having a bit more energy up high gives mic'd instruments a tiny bit more edge to cut through. Very low end can get muddy or indistinct musically, again I have to dial that back sometimes. A good preamp will reveal more of how the mic colors what it is capturing (good and bad), a cheaper pre can tame some of the issues at the frequency extremes, making it sound more balanced (although less revealing). There are lots of better mics available, but this is a sturdy one that does a good job for the price. Clean phantom power also helps it sound better across the usable frequency range, so a better preamp should be paired with this whenever possible.

          Comments about MXL V63M Condenser Studio Microphone:

          The VM63 by MXL is most likely the best value in a microphone that can be found anywhere. I use it in my amateur home studio. It is infinitely more clear than SM57/58, and sounds better than anything else double or triple the price that I've tried. And it even makes my shaggy singing voice sound kinda good! I recently added a 2nd to my collection, as this is my go-to, all-purpose mic.

            i've used several of the mxl mics and this one just seems to have a warm recording quality that i just love for vocals - the best sound and the best price.
            i also use this to record amp cabs and as a room mic for instruments.

                Have used these mics for several years. I work with a PhD concert pianist and her conductor/tenor husband. These mics pick up the nuances of the human voice, they are great for picking up transients from percussion instruments, they have a good low end for accurate reinforcement of piano, viola, cello, double bass and timpani, they do it all. They are very sensitive, and will pick up every little bump, so mount them on a stand, and make sure nothing touches the stand.

                    Comments about MXL V63M Condenser Studio Microphone:

                    This has decent electronics and capsule. I upgraded to a better capsule but the difference was not worth it. I've had a couple of these. My impression is that some are good and some are average. The average ones don't have as much treble. This mic puts the MXL990 to shame. This competes with mics in the 150 range. I got an MXL910 which wasn't bad either. I swapped the capsule out for a RK-7 on the 910 and it's very nice. As I mentioned I swapped the stock capsule out on the V63M for a RK-12 and the change was subtle. But I guess you pay hundreds for sublte changes. Good mic for vocals. Get a clean pre-amp. I use a mini mic or a mic200 with a new 12AXU7 or something like that tube. Nice looking mic too. A good modification might be taking out the inner screen mesh but I don't know if that's possible.

                    You can pay way more for a large diaphragm condenser mic but you would have to pay a lot more for one to find a better one. I have been in radio for 37 years. I use them on the air, and in our production rooms. Crisp clean vocals.
