Cardioid Condenser Microphone
MXL’s V89 is an all-purpose, large-diaphragm FET condenser, with transformerless output.
The custom body design minimizes body resonance, while a tuned grill cavity helps eliminate standing waves and reduces harmonic distortion.
The capsule diameter measures 32mm and uses a 6-micron, 25mm diaphragm. The same capsule can be found in several other MXL mics; see links in the sidebar.
The V89 includes a suspension shockmount, a velvet-lined wooden storage box, and a micro-fiber cleaning cloth.
I was pleasantly surprised by the sound, look, and build quality of the V89… even at twice the money, there is no other mic that comes close to its great sound.
The MXL V89 is also known as: V-89.
The mic was released in 2009.
