Large Capsule Condenser Microphone

Description

Large-diaphragm microphones are widely used to record vocals and other featured sound sources due to their low noise and ability to capture more acoustic energy than smaller diaphragm mics. Designed with a large, highly sensitive condenser capsule, the MXL 2003A captures the detail and rich sound of vocals, acoustic/electric guitars, and percussion recordings. A selectable bass roll-off reduces unwanted low-frequency rumble and a 10db pad attenuates the mic so that it can reproduce a wide range of sounds. Included are a shock-mount to minimize unwanted vibrations and a carrying case.

“The MXL 2003a is an excellent choice as an all-around instrument and vocal mic if you are unable to drop thousands of dollars on a vintage or boutique mic. It is one of the best large-diaphragm condensers in its price range (around $170 street) and performs as well as mics that cost 2 or 3 times as much. Kudos to MXL for bringing to the market a great sounding mic for very small change.”
– Aaron Rutten (“The Modern Vocalist Journal”)
