Nice sound for the money

Comments about MXL 870 Versatile Studio Condenser Microphone:

I liked this Mic so much I bought two more. (bought four all together) the mic sounds pretty darn good to my ears. Has a large 32mm diaphragm which makes it a great vocal mic and good for just about everything.

      Comments about MXL 870 Versatile Studio Condenser Microphone:

      I'm just getting into recording, and I needed a mic for vocals, as well as acoustic guitar. The mxl 870 happened to be on sale and it seemed like a good deal. I don't know much about mics, but it definitely picks up much more and is clearer than the cheap dynamic mic I was using. One thing to note is that it comes with a shockmount, not a standard mic clip as mentioned in the description, which was a pleasant surprise. Unfortunately, I think it's being discontinued?
