Large 35mm gold-sputtered diaphragm and low-noise circuitry ensure your sound is good as gold.

The large-diaphragm MXL Gold 35 Condenser Microphone has body reminiscent of the venerable Telefunken ELAM 251 and a stunning gold-plated finish that's impossible to miss. But this MXL condenser mic is not just about looks. Its advanced design and engineering features- such as a large 35mm gold diaphragm and low-noise circuitry-reveal the most subtle sonic details and provide incredible warmth and openness.

The Gold 35 was initially a custom design for Grammy-winning producer Benjamin Wright, a huge fan of MXL mics, whose credits include Aretha Franklin, Earth, Wind, & Fire, Michael Jackson, and The Temptations. And for a man who already owns the world's most coveted classic mics to choose the MXL Gold 35 as his go-to vocal mic, is really saying something.

Whether you're into high-energy rock, soft-and-mellow R&B, or simply want to record your favorite instrument, the MXL Gold 35 will quickly become one of your most coveted microphones-just like Benjamin Wright.

Gold 35

Comments about MXL GOLD 35 Large Diaphragm Condenser Mic:

The best thing about this mic, is that the sound really does live up to the golden exterior. The lows are warm and clear, the growls and highs are powerful and textured. Killer Studio mic especially for a baritone/tenor.
none besides the great internal components
"leather box" is not leather and the latch on it broke soon after purchase.
The mic, however, is beautiful and seems well made.
got it on sale, reasonably priced for the clarity and detail it conveys

Came Broken twice

Comments about MXL GOLD 35 Large Diaphragm Condenser Mic:

Came broke twice bought 2 of these 3 months apart. MXL did send me a different mic of equal value. Still was upset i had to send this back with parts moving around inside the grill. While UPS could have damaged this twice i have bought other MXL mics with less packaging fom here and never had a issue. In fact the mic MXL sent me from Cali had less packaging and was not broke. So i have to think part of this is the mic even though i have heard nothing but good things about it. Might roll the dice a third time but for this price it should have been right the first time.


My Secret Weapon

Comments about MXL GOLD 35 Large Diaphragm Condenser Mic:

In October, 2016 i imported my MXL Gold 35 from the US to OZ to add to my Mic locker. Initially you're attracted to the Gold, but it's beauty is more than skin deep. This mike has a warm vintage tone perfect for my bass/baritone voice overs and narration. It doesn't require a lot of gain on my Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 pre amps and it still has a clean airy top end. I've added a metal Rycote pop filter and Shockmount which adds to the genius of this Marshall product. Producer Benjamin Wright commissioned the first one and they are now a collectors piece and worth every penny if you can find one. The leather box comes complete with white gloves so you don't mark the Gold 35 with fingerprints. It's a classy set up.
