Product Description

style: MXL V67G

"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.

Style Name: MXL V67G
I have been a recording engineer for 18 years and have used just about every mic out there. Most large diaphragm condensers either color the sound significantly, break up easily with high SPLs and low frequencies, or cost an arm and a leg. For years I used a U87, which costs about 40 times what this mic does. When I opened my own studio 2 years ago with a tight budget, I listened to a variety of mics and decided to get a pair of V67Gs. It has always performed well for me, whether on voice-over, vocals, or acoustic instruments. I have matched it in with recordings from a U87 and it holds up just fine, it's just a little brighter than the German mic (which can sound dull IMO).

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'm not an expert in my home studio by any means, but the MXL V67G microphone delivered what it said it would - transparent, warm, clear duplication of sound. Just keep in mind that it's a large diaphragm condenser so it picks up EVERYTHING. If you don't have a space where you have eliminated ambient noise or excessive reverb in the room you might want to go with another mic - maybe something along the lines of a Shure SM7B that is directional and doesn't pick up as much ambient sound.

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.

This mic is fantastic! I've been singing, writing, and recording for almost 30 years and this mic is pretty much just as good as all of the silly expensive German mics I've used in larger studios over the years. There's a very slight presence peak, but nothing like most of the other Chinese mics. It isn't shrilling or peaky at all. Male tenor vocals and acoustic guitar sound great without any need for EQ whatsoever beyond a hi pass filter for the sub 100hz stuff. This mic is also an excellent candidate for a Michael Joly mod, he calls it one of the 7 audio wonders of the world because it makes no sense that this mic is this good at under $200. Michael mods these mics and you'd be hard pressed to be able to tell the difference between this one and the famous U87 with the German name that starts with an "N". I'm using it totally stock and it's been great. Buy it.

This MXL V67i is the cats meow! The sound is amazing, and it can be used for both vocals and instruments. Thanks to the switchable warm and bright feature, you can get it just right! I use it in tandem with the Presonus Tube Pre, for extra warmth, and it really cuts through the mix! If you need to save money, this mic is a sure bet!

Great Mic, I'm running it through my DR-40 portable recorder. I put the volume up to about 15 or 20, in setting it to that level, I can get really close on this mic to get that awesome proximity effect without over modulating or peaking.

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 am not a studio engineer, nor am I a professional musician. I record songs in my home as a hobby. I like to have reasonably nice gear in order to get as good a sound as possible in that setting, so if you're at or around the same level, you know what I'm talking about. Will this compare to a mic that costs three times as much? No. Are you likely to find it in a high-end professional studio? Eh...probably not. Is it a pretty sweet deal at this price point? Hells yes.

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.
