MXL V69 Mogami Edition Studio Microphone

Musicians, artists, and bloggers agree - the V69 (Mogami(R) Edition) is the standard of excellence for tube condenser microphones. Tested against mics costing barrels more, the V69 continues to impress with its rich midrange, punchy forward character, and mix-ready vocals. Providing a winning combination of both crispness and warmth, the V69 is a must-have tool for the professional and home studio environment.

The MXL V69 is a classic large-diaphragm tube microphone. This special package includes Mogami cables, a shock mount and more! The MXL V69's classic sound quality enhances vocals as well as instrument performances. The extremely low noise level, wide dynamic range and warm sonic characteristics make the V69 a perfect complement to all digital recording devices. Frequency range is 20Hz - 20kHz and equivalent noise is a low 12dB. Includes all the accessories -- power supply, Mogami cables, shock mount and windscreen - in a hard case.

Features:

- Internally wired and supplied with Mogami cable
- Vintage Tube Sound
- 25mm (1 in.) large-capsule condenser
- Complete microphone system with Mogami 7-pin and XLR Cable
- Vintage cosmetics
- 24 carat gold plated grill
- Durable brass enclosure
- Supplied with carrying case

"If you're looking for bargain-priced mic that performs like it costs a bunch more, give the V69 a very close look. You'll be thrilled at how little money you have to shell out, and you'll be even happier at how well it does it's job." -- Mitch Gallagher: Editor EQ Magazine/February 2003

"We tested the V69 against -- count' em -- 11 other popular condensers, ranging in price from $169 to $5,000.00 list".After a couple of hours of testing, both the engineer/producer and the singer picked the V69 over the other 11 mics. None of them had the same combination of classic tube warmth and top-end air of the 69." -- Fett: Technology Editor, Performing Songwriter January/February 2003

"When I set up the MXLV69 large-diaphragm tube mic on a crucial vocal track I was recording recently, I was really impressed with a winning combination of crispness and warmth - exactly what people love Tube mics for. It was a male vocal with a gutsy quality to it and the air on top at around 10K added some nice sheen to the track - all without having to resort to EQ. In fact, the 'N-brand' famous tube and the MXLV69 to me are extremely close in most aspects of performance. The price though--it is outrageously different!" -- Terry Brown: Producer, Rush , Dream Theater, Fates Warning, FM, Mullmuzzler and Bozzio, Levin, Stevens.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (48 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "A "Diamond Discovered""
Overall: I have owned numerous mics such as Neumann, Rode Classic, and other high end mics. I bought this mic out of pure curiosity. And..I was shocked. I've recorded gospel, pop, country, male, female and group vocals on a variety of microphones including the ones I named above. For $299 this mic is a deal! It's not fancy, doesn't have the "glamour" of some mics, but it gets the job done, and done very well right out of the box. Mics are a matter of personal choice, and there is a lot of hype, prestige, and other "have to have" factors associated with many of the high end name brands, but if you have $299 to spend you owe it to yourself to try this mic. Most folks talk about vocals on these reviews, but if you play acoustic guitar especially finger style try this mic about 12 inches out from the soundhole and slightly forward on the neck. Regardless of what you use it on I don't think you'll be disappointed with this mic especially at the price.
Style of Music: All types.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Excellent"
Overall: The stock tube sounded pretty good, considering the cost of the microphone. I was expecting a horrible "chinese" tube but it wasn't unpleasant. The sound was very distinct and it had a bit too much character to be very useful for vocals except in specific scenarios, but I swapped out the tube for a Mullard 4024 NOS and it sounds realllllyyy good now. Reminds me a lot of the Blue Baby Bottle microphone. A lot less mids heavy and "tinny", more universal, way easier to fit into mixes. I'm keeping the stock tube for specific occasions because I like the sound for acoustic guitar, though, so it all works out!
