MXL Trade-Up Promotion

Thursday, October 8th, 2009 | by

My friends at MXL just got in touch to announce a year-end promotion called “Trade It Up.” Bring in your old MXL mic, dead or aive, and swap it for a $50 discount against the purchase of a new MXL Gold 35, V67i Tube, V69XM, V89, or MXL R77.

If you’re not up on the current MXL Studio Collection Series, here’s a refresher…

Gold 35The Gold 35 is a large-diameter FET condenser, designed specifically as a vocal mic for producer Benjamin Wright, who commented after a shootout, “the gold mic kicked the 87’s ass.” (Read my interview with Ben Wright.) If I were in the market for a vocal mic, the Gold 35 would be on my short list.

V67i TubeThe V67i Tube is a unique dual-capsule tube mic with a “warm/bright” switch that allows selection of the front “warm” capsule or the rear “bright” capsule — which adds about 6dB of response above 4kHz.

V69XMThe V69XM is a new mic, based on the successful V69 “Mogami Edition.” It uses the same proven 32mm large-diaphragm capsule and the basic tube amplifier circuit of the V69ME, but replaces the ME’s transistor-based output circuit with a transformer.

V89The V89 is MXL’s all-purpose studio condenser mic. They’ve coupled their 32mm large-diaphragm capsule to a clean transformerless FET amplifier circuit, but derived some sonic magic by packaging it in a 64mm-diameter case. The oversized headbasket reduces reflections and resonances that could otherwise muddy the mic’s sound.

R77The R77 is an upscale yoke-mount ribbon mic with vintage styling. It comes in a kit with a desktop stand, a Mogami XLR cable, and a padded storage case.

The terms of the promotion limit the rebate to one per new microphone, although if you want to buy multiple new mics you can trade in one apiece.

The promotion expires on December 31.

    Where do we have to bring the mics? And do they take all models of MXLs? I’ve got a 991 I never use that I’d love to trade for that discount.
