MXL CR89 Large-Diaphragm Condenser Microphone

An update to MXL's well-received V89 microphone, the fixed-cardioid CR89 condenser performs beyond its price range on vocals, acoustic guitars, and more.

The MXL CR-89 is a large diaphragm condenser microphone wrapped in sharply contrasted black and chrome. The sound is every bit as bold as the body; the CR-89 can handle subtle acoustic guitar tones and loud vocals with the same sonic integrity. The CR-89 has low noise circuitry and a very low proximity effect, making it ideal for up-close recording. At home on instruments and vocals, the CR-89's body design minimizes body resonance while the tuned grill cavity reduces standing waves and harmonic distortion.
