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.

I purchased one when it was on the Stupid Deal of the Day. I should have purchased two but that is hind sight. So when it went on sale I jumped on it and purchased the second one. As I stated in my last review it is similar in sound to a Shure 57 with a little more clarity, definition and attack. It has a good tight bottom end with very little coloration. The Mic is chromed out and looks great. It comes with a microfiber cloth to remove the finger prints. It is kind of heavy for a mic. At just under a pound suspending it from a mic stand with a boom, the boom length and the stands base must be taken into account. Most stands will handle it if the boom length is not to long. It comes in a foam liner in the box. It does require phantom power. Both my mixing board and my audio interface can supply that, so no problem for me. I bought both of mine on Stupid Deal of the Day, so for the price it was a great buy. I read reviews stating no output or low sound. This is a true Condenser Mic. It requires 48v phantom power to work. Without the power it has very little or no output. With phantom power it is hotter than a dynamic mic. You also must use a THREE wire balanced Mic cable to get the phantom power to the mic. I liked it enough to purchase a second one. I could use more because of my cab setup but money is an object. So for now two will have to do.

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.

Comments about MXL Guitar Cube Pro:

It's a Mic so lets talk sound. Similar to a Shure 57 with slightly more clarity, definition and attack. Good tight bottom end with very little coloration. The Mic is chromed out and looks like a million. This great looking case comes with a microfiber cloth to remove the finger prints. The great looks comes with a price, the weight. At just under a pound suspending it from a mic stand with a boom, the boom length and the stands base must be taken into account. Most stands will handle it if the boom length is not to long. I am not to sure how the case will hold up over time. It comes in a foam liner in the box. I am not abusive with my equipment. So I am not too worried. It does require phantom power. Both my mixing board and my audio interface can supply that, so no problem for me. I bought mine on Stupid Deal of the Day, so for the price it was a great buy. I read reviews stating no output or low sound. This is a true Condenser Mic. It requires 48v phantom power to work. Without the power it has very little or no output.

    Comments about MXL Guitar Cube Pro:

    The MXL Cube miss are decent for low-end mics. The Guitar Cube has a full sound, a bit more bass-heavy than a typical SM57 on a guitar cabinet.

    It does not, however, have as good of rejection of off-axis sound. (So expect bleed if recording a live session with a full band.)

    The wider patter makes placement a bit easier, though. It took less tweaking of placement to find this mic's "sweet spot". All in all, it's worth the price when bought as a "deal" price.

    the construction seems OK. Not as story as an old SM57, but it's a condenser not a dynamic. (Also, that means it NEEDS phantom power)

    I found it didn't need too much gain from the preamp, either. Decent output.

          It is new to me but I have used them before in other applications live so I bought two of them for my studio strictly for loud amplified signals. Can't wait to use them on my leslie, turned up to break up, etc.

              Comments about MXL Guitar Cube Pro:

              I bought these on a whim because our drummer was interested in them and we were about to record a full-length ourselves. It turns out that they break up easily; you can hear the physical element of the microphone crackling the whole time. I did some EQ to soften it a bit, but it's still there. No time to redo everything, and the rest of the band is fine with it, so it stays, unfortunately. The sound underneath the crackling is decent, but the crackling overshadows all. I might try a lower guitar volume next time I use them, but that kind of defeats the point of a microphone designed for recording guitar amps, doesn't it? I will make sure I buy something a bit more established that has more reviews when I have money for microphones again.
