The MXL V69 is a large diaphragm tube condenser microphone that is made for use in the recording studio.  It comes with a case, the power supply, a shock mount, and the proper cable to plug this into the power supply.  It is definitely not meant for any other sort of use beyond recording as it is somewhat fragile and needs to be treated with care.


I've been using the MXL V69 for a little less than a year and while I wasn't expecting all that much from this mic, I'm not a big fan of the way this mic sounds.  While it is certainly cheap, I do think that it is a bit overpriced because it doesn't have a great sound quality in my opinion.  While of course tube condenser microphone for $300 USD sounds like a great deal, for me it isn't worth it because while it does sound okay, it doesn't sound like a $300 mic.  I've used it a number of times for vocals and while it does have a warmth to it that is heard in most tube mics, it lacks a certain clarity and is almost a bit too fat sounding.  I look for a mix of clarity and warmth in a tube mic and to me this really just has too much warmth.  While some might view this as a good thing, for me it clouds the picture and doesn't give you a true sound of what you are recording.  While this looks like an attractive option for home studio owners, I would recommend looking into other microphone even if they are not tube mics.  I know that it is cool to have a tube mic in the collection, but I would recommend getting a cheaper solid state condenser mic as there are pleantly that sound cleaner and are more useful than this one.  I would recommend trying this out if you are in the market for a tube condenser, but make sure to shop around to see what else is out there.
