MXL Aria

Pressure Gradient Condenser Microphone

The Aria is a modern take on the classic condenser microphone. It features a tube shaped, gray metallic body with black chrome trim. The large diaphragm capsule has a cardioid polar pattern, with a -10db pad and low frequency roll-off. The result is a solid state microphone designed in the tradition of well-known German vintage microphones, with a similar rich sound and tonal quality. Contrary to its high end sound, the Aria is affordably priced to suit the needs of professional and project studio recording enthusiasts.
