About This Listing

RockScience Custom Shop Upgraded and Modified MXL990

This upgrade is more than just changing a few capacitors. This 990 has been totally gutted and rebuilt using a premium Large Diaphragm k47 Style Capsule and mounting system and our own Schoeps style transformerless circuit. The headbasket has been replaced with a higher quality and more attractive one from  It looks and sounds gorgeous!

Our circuit uses ultra low-noise resistors and high quality WIMA Polypropylene Capacitors in the audio path. The PCB is manufactured in the USA and assembled in my shop with care. The mic is tested, burned in and working perfectly. I've even included the optional internal Omni/Cardioid Pattern switch in this build! Our circuit works perfectly over a wide range of phantom power voltages and is voiced perfectly to match the k47 capsule.

This mic includes the basic "hard" mount (no shockmount). No case or zipper pouch is included.
