The MXL 990 is a great starter condenser microphone, with a bright and detailed sound for your instruments and vocals. This side-addressed small-diaphragm condenser employs transformerless electronics for transparency and clarity, and the cardioid polar pattern only picks up what's in front of it, reducing noises and reflections behind the mic. With a wholly affordable price that any musician can manage, the 990 was a breakthrough product for MXL and remains a home studio staple.

    Just recorded mandolin on a laptop, recording software & audio interface (AI). AI software had an option for 48v phantom power. Having a great time šŸ¤˜šŸ» ā€¢ Pro - really captures wide range of warm & dynamic tones. ā€¢ Con & Pro - very sensative. The mic recorded my foot tapping (which using the shock mount remedied : ) Great mic & great price!
