Low Noise Condenser Microphone


ProAuio Review Jan 2013 issueMXL wins in value and quality over the high-end Sony C800PAC condenser microphone.

"I was recording vocals with a male artist that I had previously recorded with a Sony C800G. Both the artist and myself had been pleased with the performance of the C-800G, but I was curious to see how the CR89 would sound compared to the Sony. I was suprised when we both selected the CR89 as our preferred mic..."

The MXL CR89 is a large diaphragm condenser microphone with ultra-low-noise circuitry to deliver a full, rich sound while minimizing any self-noise. The custom black chrome and matte black body design gives the CR89 a stunning appearance in any studio. The sound is every bit as bold as its appearance, able to handle subtle acoustic guitar tones to loud vocals while retaining a consistent sonic quality. The CR89 has a intentional low proximity effect to allow for up-close, intimate recording without the added bass and woofiness common with most microphones. Equally at home on instruments and vocals, the CR89's body is designed to minimize unwanted body resonance while the tuned grill reduces standing waves and harmonic distortion. Included is a protective aluminum case, shockmount to reduce unwanted noise from vibrations, and a microfiber cleaning cloth. The CR89 is an excellent microphone for detailed vocal and instrument recording applications.
