OVERVIEW

Large diaphragm, small price.

The MXL 990 Condenser Microphone with shockmount has a silky, sweet high end while retaining tight, solid low and midrange reproduction. The 3/4" gold-sputtered diaphragm creates a professional sound suited for digital and analog recording. Attractive Heritage Edition body style. The 30Hz-20kHz frequency response is ideal for lead and background vocal, male or female. Includes custom shock mount, mic stand adapter, and case.

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 Heritage Edition.

      Comments about Heritage Edition of the MXL 990 Cardioid Condenser Mic:

      I bought this as a package with a pencil microphone. It came with a carry case and a shockmount and was very reasonably priced. I am using it to mic a grand piano and it has helped to cut through the mix. It is not the best large diaphragm condenser mic however it has a good sound and was well worth the price.

        Comments about Heritage Edition of the MXL 990 Cardioid Condenser Mic:

        All the same performance you expect from the mxl 990 in a sleek looking package. A good all around condenser for vocal or instrumental recording or podcasting. Purchased on sale with a 603s. Great deal. Hard to beat this mic at this price point. We have used 990s in recordings for our punk bands for a few years now.
