MXL V88s

Large Studio Diaphragm Condenser Microphone

The V88s is a small profile multi-purpose microphone with a fixed cardioid pattern. Key features include a 1.25" large diaphragm gold-sputtered capsule and low noise FET preamp with balanced transformerless output. A new addition for the V88s is a 3-position pad (pre-attenuation) switch with settings of 0 dB, -10 dB, and -20 db.
