OVERVIEW

White reissue of a studio favorite.

The MXL 990 Condenser Microphone has a silky, sweet high end while retaining tight, solid low and midrange reproduction. The 3/4 in. gold-sputtered diaphragm creates a professional sound suited for digital and analog recording. Attractive vintage body style with champagne finish. The 30 Hz-20 kHz frequency response is ideal for lead and background vocal, male or female. Includes a clip. Remember folks, this mic requires phantom power, so make sure your console or interface delivers it before ordering.

There are a bazillion studio vocal mics on the market that break the magical $100 barrier, a traditionally unheard of price point for a studio vocal mic. Once that price floor was demolished, however, the market became flooded with offerings in the $80 - $100 price range. MXL has emerged as a true leader in this market, and the MXL990 is MXL's flagship product in that category. If a well-built, good-sounding, versatile studio microphone for less than $100 sounds like a good fit for your current needs, you can't go wrong with the MXL990.

Cool little mic!

By Mike D

from Kansas City, MO

Comments about MXL 990 Blizzard Limited Edition Condenser Microphone:

Picked this mic up on sale, not a bad little mic for vocals for the price! I also dig the light up effect! It doesn't have much of a purpose other than to tell me if I accidentally forgot to turn on phantom power lol, but it looks cool and when laying down some vocal tracks it adds a nice little blue hue to the room. Doesn't come with a shockmount which I wish it did, but luckily I have a spare that fit.

Comments about MXL 990 Blizzard Limited Edition Condenser Microphone:

I wanted the standard MXL990 but could not get the discount on it. The MF customer service rep suggested this MXL990 Blizzard so I bought it and I like it. If you compare this to the specs on the MXL990 they are exactly the same. The only difference I can see is that the Blizzard has a blue light inside the mic screen. I saw reviews from other people that didn't like the blue light but it makes no difference to me. I not really qualified to say whether this mic would be up to professional standards, but I've got to say that I'm impressed with it.

    Comments about MXL 990 Blizzard Limited Edition Condenser Microphone:

    For the price, you can't beat it. The mic sounds great for the money. The LEDs look cool and are a helpful indicator to see if the mic is connected properly. Great option for home recording.

    Excellent Value

    By Choo King

    Comments about MXL 990 Blizzard Limited Edition Condenser Microphone:

    It's a great choice if you want great sound without spending a fortune. The only thing that I don't like is the blue light. I saw that others disliked it too. I got used to it after a few hours, but it could still be a problem if you are using it in videos. There is no option to turn off the light. If the light doesn't bother you, definitely get this.
