I've been searching for a low cost LDC mic that captures my voice (male alto to tenor range) with presence and "air" and the MXL V6 delivers. It has become the first mic I reach for when i'm doing a vocal session.It resides in my mic cabinet alongside a Rode NT2-a, CAD e350, MXL 2003 and a TOA K2.
I just used a pair of these to record horns on a jazz/blues album. They just scorched my other mics. (AKG 414, Rode NTK)
I bought this mic recently to replace my MXL 990 and it is vastly greater! I recorded a quick verse with both mics and listened to the differences. What I immediately noticed was how low the noise is on this mic. The next thing was the almost Neumann like clarity, without the harsh highs the 990 is known for. While not quite a Neumann, at less than 1/10 of the price, this mic is great! Plus if you have a decent preamp, you are good to go! I highly recommend this mic.
I have had this microphone for the past 2 or 3 months. I have recorded over 20 songs with it since then. Mostly hiphop and r&b jams. This mic was not intended for vocals and MXL classifies this mic as an instrument mic. Vocals sound great on this mic as do instrums. I am getting the MXL V69 mogami in a week to check out the difference. No complaints here besides the fact that it does not come with a shockmount. Great mic for the $.
