Cardioid Tube Condenser Microphone
The MXL 9000 is a tube condenser microphone built for MXL’s “900 series,” sold exclusively by Guitar Center and its affiliated companies.
The mic has a fixed Cardioid polar pattern. There are no switchable features (such as pad or high-pass filter).
The tube is reportedly a 12AT7. It is mounted behind the single circuit board, with a retaining cap haphazardly glued to the transformer shield.
The mic’s circuit is relatively noisy compared to modern microphones, at 22dBA.
The mic ships with its dedicated power supply, a 15-foot 7-pin cable, and a 15-foot 3-pin XLR cable.
