MXL 770 Large-diaphragm Condenser Microphone

MXL 770 Large-diaphragm Condenser Microphone

An easy choice for producers, musicians, and content creators looking to add a reliable, high-quality condenser to their gear vault, the MXL 770 is a no-nonsense large-diaphragm condenser microphone offering superior recording capabilities for vocals and instruments alike. By utilizing a FET preamp and transformer-free balanced output, the 770 captures audio with a fantastic balance across all frequencies and a clear, open high end. Toggle on the 770's low-frequency roll-off switch, and you'll bask in a pure, untainted sound free from excessive noise and bass rumble. Its natural and versatile cardioid pickup pattern works exceptionally well when tracking vocalists, stringed instruments, and pianos, imbuing each take with a beautiful warmth and clarity that belie its affordable price tag. And with its built-in -10dB attenuation switch, you can be sure that the 770 is more than capable of holding its own against any sound source imaginable. Its usability goes far beyond music, making it an ideal mic choice for recording podcasts, voiceovers, and any other application where top-quality sound is crucial. Plus, each 770 comes in a rugged hardshell case with a custom foam interior along with a sturdy and stable shockmount — all you need is a mic stand and XLR cable, and you're ready to record like a pro!
