In my country this mic is way more expensive than it is abroad, it's a bit more than double the price...if you're f*cking lucky! So glad I bought it online. Truth is it's way better than my first cheap-ass mic, which now that I think of it, they weren't THAT distant in price whatsoever. If you're on a budget, don't even hesitate to buy this, and I'll tell you why. Being a condenser, you would think this mic was built more for acoustic instrument recording, and less for vocals, right?
Not at all mate! This condenser mic on vocals, better than $100 Shure Dynamics. I f*cking CONTEND it. Now, it's no Rode NT1 when it comes to frequency response or anything. But it's way more affordable. MXL in general is very good at making budget microphones. Quite pleased with this one.
