    Comments about MXL 990s Patriot Limited Edition Condenser Microphone:

    We did a blind test of this mic against six others, including another MXL (V250), an SM58, and four others, all of which were more expensive than this mic, and it was clearly the best choice for my particular voice (and my cohort's voice, on another project). I was frankly surprised. It was the clearest-sounding, with the best fidelity. Again, that's for my particular voice, but I think it speaks well of the mic, as I've had a hard time getting a satisfactory sound on my voice

        Comments about MXL 990s Patriot Limited Edition Condenser Microphone:

        I saw this on sale for an awesome price for the 4th of July sale and figured why not? I have another 990 already, not the 990s, and was hoping to mod this one, swapping out the capsule and circuit board, making it a real beast. Unfortunately, it appears as though you cannot remove the outer shell to make any modifications to this microphone whatsoever. It is fixed closed. This opens up a host of problems, in my opinion. If the grill is dented, there would then be no way to fix it or remove it. If you wished to take out a layer of mesh from the grill you could not. I have issues with this, as almost every other mic I own can be opened up and modified if one desires. I also do not like the fact that it did not come with a case or shockmount, as every other MXL990 does. I can't complain too much since the price was very good, but the combination of these things makes me a little disappointed. The paint job is awesome, and I honestly do like the mic itself just fine, particularly with the addition of the high-pass and -10db pad (which are great), which is why I'm more than a little confused as to why they have made it impossible to modify. If you have no issues with this, please buy it. It is a good mic, but I was hoping to turn it into a great one.

          This unit does what it's supposed to do, sounds good, looks good...I actually own an older model 990 and it's still working so I bought a pair of these because of the novelty and the bargain price. Very happy with this purchase.

              Comments about MXL 990s Patriot Limited Edition Condenser Microphone:

              Read reviews for the MXL 990s as this is a limited edition of it with a red white and blue paint job. Also this edition comes with a standard mic stand clip, but no shock mount or hard plastic carry case, like the regular MXL 990s. I bought it because it was on sale at a very good price and could live without the shock mount and case and with the garish red white and blue thing. This is a very good mic at the regular price and holds it's own among other similar mics in it's price range and is better than most of them. I think this mic is a little warmer and musically sweeter than a audio-technical AT2020 I have, but they sell for 1/3 less at regular street prices. I have a modest home studio that I use for demos of songs I have written so I don't need Royer 121's or Neumann's.

                I've used condenser mics from various companies at various price ranges. From the AT2020 to the TLM-103, to the C214 and the C414, this is a nice sounding mic that has a sick paint job and is a third of the price to its original counterpart, it's a sweet deal.
