nice and cheap microphone
It is pretty solid built and you can get very nice results from it. Good performance for a fair price. The built is actually so good, that there are modifications for it. You can order online a kit with better electronics and a better diaphragm. In the end it will cost you some time and around 300-400 USD but it is claimed that it comes into the quality range of some very high priced neumann mics. Even without the modifications it is reasonable good.
The Little Mic That Could
In my life, I have been through hundreds or microphones. In my punk days in the 90s, we couldn't afford anything, so we would essentially use what we could get our hands on. As I was starting to take music seriously, I invested in some intro basic recording mics, like the MXLs. When I thought I had grown out of these models (and had a little bit more money to spend on gear) I bought more Shure mics and some Blue mics for vocals. But, I always got a better tone out of the MXLs! So, for my new recordings of my personal music, I have gone back to the good 'ol MXL 990. For my vocal range, I LOVE this mic. Sadly, my higher-end mics are now collecting dust in the closet. I call these guys "'ol trusty" for a reason.
