MXL Genesis Tube Microphone

The MXL Genesis Tube Microphone is a masterfully engineered tube microphone with features and performance levels found in mics priced thousands of dollars more. From intimate vocal recordings to fast-attacking rap, the Genesis cuts beautifully through the mix with spectacular detail.

The MXL Genesis Tube Microphone captures all the warmth and richness of critical vocal and instrument recordings by combining a large 32mm gold sputtered diaphragm with state of the art tube circuity. A premium Mullard 12AT7 is used for high performance and ultra-low noise. Additional features include low frequency roll off to reduce unwanted rumble, a 10db pad, and high quality Mogami cable used for internal wiring. The striking gloss red body and gold grill make an attractive addition to any studio. Included are a matching gold metal mesh pop filter, shockmount, a dedicated power supply, 15' Mogami microphone cable, 7 pin connecting cable, and protective case. Add the MXL Genesis tube microphone to your studio and join the producers, engineers and musicians who elevate their work with the clean highs, warm mid-range, and tight bottom end that the MXL Genesis is known for.

    !!!TOP NOTCH!!!

    Posted by Domingo Betances on Apr 11th 2013

    Without getting into much detail, this mic is as good as ANY pro mic & BETTER than MANY!!! I own an AKG C414 XLS & the Genesis BLOWS it away!!! I also do a lot of work with a colleagues U87 & the Genesis sounds JUST as good on many voices & better on some!!! The Genesis sounds RIGHT!!! NO need to eq or compress. It sounds THICK & AIRY. No sibilince or boominess. Also, it's VERY well built, you get MANY great accessories & it looks STUNNING!!! I will say that I ONLY tested it on vocals. Finally, I'd like to thank the staff here at Front End Audio. These Guys Are VERY knowledgeable, responsive & easy going. BTW, to whom it may concern, Ryan Should Get A HEFTY Raise!!!
