Large Capsule Condenser Microphone
"Old school tube mellow" is often used to describe the sound of the MXL V67G Large Capsule Condenser Microphone. Designed mainly for vocals, the V67G combines Class A FET circuitry and a transformer-coupled output for an open and pure sound. The V67G comes through with killer vocals even in front of a busy mix and has great stage appeal with a gold-plated round grill and distinctive, vintage body. You'll be amazed by the sound this cleverly-designed microphone provides and pleasantly pleased with the price.
- Solid-state mic that breathes warmth into vocals
- Rich midrange that matches tube microphones
- Crystal clear sound that's loaded with warmth
- Penetrating vocals that stay above the tracks
- Excellent for R&B, pop, rock and country

I now could afford to get a more expensive mic but I really don't need to. I work with a variety of clients all over the country and have only gotten compliments about the sound of the microphone. Most of the time people don't say anything about it because it is so transparent that they assume it's a high priced mic.
I'd buy this mic again. It might not be as nice as mics costing hundreds or thousands more, but compared side by side, I'm not sure that a novice like me with a home studio would even be able to make use of something more expensive - it would be money wasted.
Now, you don't really have to do too much EQ except for a slight reduction on the top end. The truth is this, it's totally optional to even do that. I was recording a commercial to be added to a video and you would think this was at least a $1000 microphone.
I've heard the Neumann microphones, well, this one compares, and it doesn't even have a tube.
The sound is pretty flat, which means you don't really need to adjust the EQ, which is perfect for live recordings, but depending on the pop screen you use, you might lose some proximity effect, but I record pretty close on it.
The pop screen in the picture I posted the following:
WindTech PopGard Microphone Windscreen
The mic costs about $90 with another $32 for the pop screen.
The recorder I use is about $170, that is here:
TASCAM DR-40 4-Track Portable Digital Recorder
Pick it up, you won't regret it.
I've worked my way up in terms of mic quality as my hobby has gotten progressively more serious, and this is the nicest mic I own right now. The difference in quality between this and even a nice dynamic mic is immediately obvious. I use it for recording vocals, and my voice (again, not a pro!) is finicky to record, usually sounding pretty muddy. Even with nicer dynamic mics usually used for vocals (SM57 and 58) this was still the case. But with this mic, my voice sounds much more clear and open.
Admittedly, this is a very subjective evaluation, but then aren't all mic evaluations subjective? You can go on all day about response range and EQ flatness, but what matters in the end is how the mic sounds in your application. And to my ears, this mic sounds wonderful.
My only real gripe is that the sensitivity pattern doesn't seem to be a super-tight cardioid, because it still picks up some sound coming from behind it. Perhaps this is how it's supposed to be, but when trying to record both vocals and a loud electric guitar simultaneously, it can be a headache trying to jury-rig an isolation method that works. I took off a star for this alone, although that may not be fair since I haven't used any other large-diaphragm condensers and therefore have no idea if they're all supposed to behave this way.
