A Great "First" Large-Diaphragm Mic to Build Your Collection!

The MXL 2008 large-diaphragm condenser microphone will add a great deal of tracking possibilities to your recording space without breaking your wallet. Inspired by the classic Neumann K67 capsule, the is MXL 2008 a great tool for capturing a large range of instruments, and the Class A circuitry and balanced transformerless output allows for smooth tracking and a low self-noise. This mic works wonders in the studio as well as in live settings, and comes with a padded carrying case and a shock mount to get you recording right away.

Wide Range of Applications

This mic is a lean mean recording machine with a large reach of versatility. The wide frequency response of 30 Hz to 20 kHz allows you to track voices or instruments without picking up too much low-end "mud." Whether you're recording acoustic guitar, vocals, voiceover, drum overheads, percussion, strings, or wind intruments, your MXL 2008 will always be ready for the occasion.

Smooth Sailing, Session After Session

Your MXL 2008 is easy to set up and use when you and your instrument are ready to begin tracking. A class "A" FET preamp utilizes a transformerless design that exhibits low self-noise of 16 dB, and the 1.26" capsule boasts an excellent transient response to deliver a precise capture of your instrument the very second you hit record.

Sleek Design at a Steal

MXL designed this mic as a reincarnation of the MXL 2006, and it shares the same body design. The sleek silver metal finish features the MXL logo as well as a cardioid polar pattern symbol on its front side. This versatile companion is a great cohort to the burgeoning engineer because it works so well in a variety of scenarios -- including live performance settings as well as in the studio -- all for a steal of a price!

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
