The MXL 9000 Tube Condenser Microphone is an excellent tube condenser microphone. It is very sensitive! There is no need to scream into this mic - you can sing at very low volume and it picks up all the nuances!

It is my second MXL9000. I plan to try this one for recording two vocals at once! I am also looking forward to mic'ing my drums and acoustic guitar to see how that sounds.

Very good microphone for the price!

I am extremely satisfied.

Not the greatest Musicians Friend !

I bought the MXL 9000 microphone but had to pay extra extra extra to get one that worked. Return shipping, insurance etc. Musicians Friend offers Bupkiss for your trouble.

    Comments about MXL 9000 Tube Condenser Microphone:

    I first used this mic back in 2007 when I lived in Minnesota. This mic is wonderful. I am about to purchase another very very soon. Clear sound, no hassel, easy spaced set up, compact. and it looks great. Not only would I recommend it to others, i have influence 4 associates in Texas to purchase one as well. Great mic.

      For the price, this microphone is excellent for home recording. It has warmth and clarity that I had not been able to find in similarly priced microphones.

      DON'T SLEEP ON THIS MIC

      By 

      from Baton Rouge,La.

      Comments about MXL 9000 Tube Condenser Microphone:

      After doing some research I made the decision to buy this particular microphone.I've had experience with dynamic mics back in the day in studios but they never reproduced high end frequencies well.When I got the MXL 9000 I was impessed even with the stock tubes that it comes with.This mic has really brought out my vocal tracks.I can't wait to see how it'll sound with the NOS tube.You don't have to worry if your preamp/audio interface/or mixer has phantom power becase this mic doesn't run off phantom poer it has it's on power supply.The price Musician's Friend is selling it at is a great deal.

      9000 Tube Condenser Mic

      By 

      from illinois

      Comments about MXL 9000 Tube Condenser Microphone:

      Great full frequency response!
      This is the first tube condenser mic I have purchased. The 9000 is great! I don't have a great voice but this mic makes it passable! I have two other mics and this mic is far better. At least for recording vocals and acoustic guitar. You don't have to get close to the mic - 12 to 18 inches or even farther away and it picks it up.
      It was't that expensive and well worth the money!

      Great price performance!

      Comments about MXL 9000 Tube Condenser Microphone:

      When you own a Recording Studio You are always looking for good mics. I came across these and I have to say I was pretty impressed. Granted The first thing I did was change the stock tube out for some NOS 12at7's and once that is done you have yourself a really creamy Tube Condenser. I love to use two of them as Drum overheads, they really make the drum mix pop and now they are my mic of choice for that purpose. Do yourself a favor... get a couple. Change the tubes .. and I guarantee you will find some good use for them.

      Comments about MXL 9000 Tube Condenser Microphone:

      What a bargain for this great sounding mic. I was using a Neumann U-67 at my studio until it got stolen...........I needed a mic quick, got this one and boy was I surprised. This thing sounds great right out of the box........I replaced the tube with a 5751 and now it's creamier and more in your face. This mic is worth 5 times the money to me. It got me out of a jam and now I use it every day!!!!
