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.

Not bad once modded

These two mics have the same innards, just presented in different bodies. The 990's are great candidates for modification and can become quite capable performers after capsule and circuit upgrades.

Comments about MXL 990/991 Recording Microphone Package:

I have been looking at microphones to record acoustical instruments into Reason at home for a few years now, and this deal came out that was too good to pass up. It does everything I need and I am very happy with the price/ performance of these microphones. I'm sure they are not equivalent to the +$500 microphones out there (not that my old ears could really tell the difference), but for home recording they are outstanding.

    I found an option for recording acoustic guitar. I point 1 toward the 12th fret, the other toward the saddle, blend them, and my recordings sound great (for a newbie).

      Comments about MXL 990/991 Recording Microphone Package:

      I got a good deal on this package 990/991 and have used them for about a year now. I liked them so much I got another set for doing stereo setups and received a free gift the MXL 2003 and 603 I get really good results with 990/991 and I am sure to get good recordings with the others as well. MXL quality has been good and at a price I can afford(win-win).

        Comments about MXL 990/991 Recording Microphone Package:

        I had heard about the MXL line of mic's through a friend and I read as much on the MXL 990 as I could find. I pulled the trigger and ordered a set of MXL 990's and when the package arrived I decided to record a vocal track using it. I played with the pad on my board and so forth and mirrored a vocal track I had previously recorded...and when I played back the tracks...the MXL recorded track had a much more vibrant and presence to it...loved it. For the price I may buy another set just to have.
