MXL MXL 990 Condenser Microphone with Shockmount

Sound Quality


General Comments

This is a condenser mic so if it is your first one you will probably be like, "wow this thing is awesome". After you get over the honeymoon and try more expensive condensers you will find that the 990 is just a cheap sounding condenser. It distorts very easily and has a huge proximity effect. I spent 3 times the amount on my CAD M177 and it sounds and preforms 10 times better than the 990. My 990 will go on Ebay for some other sucker.
