The MXL V89 is a large-diaphragm, pressure-gradient condenser microphone with a transparent sound that's ideal for a wide range of instruments, especially acoustic guitars, pianos and strings. It's also great for capturing room sound in a studio.


Low-Noise Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone

The MXL V89 is a serious studio condenser microphone that can tackle any recording task -- from the natural tonality of your favorite guitar, to the subtle detail of a fine piano, or the raw attack of screaming vocals. The custom body design minimizes body resonance, while a tuned grill cavity helps eliminate standing waves and reduces harmonic distortion. The V89 provides the kind of sonic integrity you'd expect from a microphone priced thousands of dollars and will leave you wondering how you ever lived without it!
