Low noise studio condenser microphone.

The MXL CR89 is a large diaphragm condenser microphone wrapped in sharply contrasted black and chrome. The sound is every bit as bold as the body; the CR89 can handle subtle acoustic guitar tones and loud vocals with the same sonic integrity. The CR89 has low noise circuitry and a very low proximity effect, making it ideal for up-close recording. At home on instruments and vocals, the CR89's body design minimizes body resonance while the tuned grill cavity reduces standing waves and harmonic distortion.

Top-quality condenser microphone for vocals and instruments
Ideal for acoustic guitars, strings, pianos and room sound
Warm in character yet still faithful to the original source
Very low proximity effect”great for up-close recording
Supplied with heavy duty shock mount, and real wood storage box

Ideal for up-close recording, order the CR89 today!

      Comments about MXL CR89 Large Diaphragm Studio Condenser:

      I have used this mic on a number of vocalists and acoustic guitars. The CR89 is a great sounding mic in it's price point. This mic has a solid feel and has a pleasing forward sound. It is a great choice for someone looking for a great mid-line mic at an entry level price.

      One thing I would point out is that this mic is functionally the EXACT SAME MIC as the MXL V89 AND the MXL 890. EXACT. The difference is only in how they paint the various models. I took apart my CR89 and compared it to the V89 and 890 and saw no difference except that printed on the V89's circuit board is a small white "V89". The CR89 and the 890 but no "V89" as that number was literally SCRATCHED OFF BY HAND!!! Funny! Anyway, I love the CR89 no matter what you call it!
