MXL 2001

Large Diaphragm Condenser Mic

The MXL 2001 altered the conception of large diaphragm condenser microphones. Finally, an affordable, good sounding condenser is available for the performing musician or home studio. Commercial studios have also benefited from MXL's innovation. They are now using the MXL 2001 in very demanding applications, without the fear of ruining an expensive, classic condenser mic. Its 1" gold-sputtered diaphragm has been specially designed to stay out in front of the mix making it perfect for vocal recording, drum kit and guitar cabinet miking, as well as general room miking. The MXL2001 has a high quality FET preamp and its output is transformer balanced. A screw-on stand adapter is included and a high isolation shockmount (MXL-56) is available as an option.

  • The first MXL mic—still a favorite among musicians
  • Condenser mic that captures performers' nuances
  • Perfect for vocals but also great for acoustic guitars
  • FET preamp with transformer-balanced output
  • Rich midrange and a detailed top end

"This mic is fabulous! My DJ's were not originally happy about using the MXL 2001 over a dynamic after bad experiences with more expensive condensers, but now they love it. I would put these up against mics costing 4 times the amount. The 2001's are used in Studio C almost every day where many acts have used them including Tori Amos, Sting, Susan Tedeschi and Warren Zevon."

"Marshall condenser mics are great at any price. Both in the studio and live they capture the nuances of my playing. I'll be using them in the studio on my solo album."

Steve Negus

"Because of the low price point, I finally have a high quality, superb sounding mic I can use in more demanding situations, like toms and guitar amps, without trashing an expensive tube mic."
