Bought this bundle, and it was worth every cent. These two condensers (my first condensers) sound incredible on drums, acoustic guitar, electric guitar amps, and vocals (haven't tried it on anything else). The full EQ response is very noticeable and has upped my recording quality exponentially from my Shure 58's.

My biggest complaint is if you buy this bundle (990/991 together), you don't get the 990 shock mount. The mic clip that you get with this package is flimsy plastic and extremely tedious to mount (you have to unscrew the bottom of the mic and place the mic clip between the two mic parts, like a washer). Since condensers aren't something that should be left out all the time, this gets really annoying. I wish they'd just up the price a little and include the shock mount--until then, you're probably better off buying it separately.

I bought the MXL 990/991 package and I'm very happy, the 990 replaces my SM7B and sounds so much better. I use it mostly for broadcasting on the internet and the 990 is impressive.
I still have to eq this mic like I do all my mics but this one has nice smooth mids and highs, unlike the SM7B that tends to have a bite.
The 991 is ok, not too impressed with it but again for the price it's worth it.
The only down side is when you get the 990/991 package you don't get the shockmount for the 990 as you would if you bought just the 990, I ordered the shockmount and it's a little pricey.

I wish I knew about this mic before I bought my SM7B, I could have saved a lot of money or got four 990s and still saved money!

    Comments about MXL 990/991 Recording Microphone Package:

    Been recording a demo for solo project. Acoustic guitar and vocals only. Works great, running through a Yamaha board into a Tascam recorder. I needed some mics for recording. My live sound mics don't get the job done for recording. I'm happy with this product.

          Works very well in addition to tom, snare, and overheads. Just put the large diaphragm over the kick and under the ride and the small diaghram over high hats. Creates an ultra fat drum sound!

                Comments about MXL 990/991 Recording Microphone Package:

                These mics are great, especially for the 'stupid deal of the day' price, you can't go wrong. I did a lot of research on them but still bought them despite a little skepticism since I had never used this brand before.
                As soon as I plugged them in I was instantly impressed. Don't let the little mic fool you, it is good for anything including vocals. I would not hesitate to buy them again. Those who pick them apart technically are those same people who think they are 'experts' and will find something wrong with anything. You can't go wrong, they are great !
