The Cube from MXL is a large-diaphragm condenser microphone with a unique cube-like shape. The mic is ideal for percussion and drum applications, and features a large gold sputtered 6 micron diaphragm to produce clear, natural sound. A transformerless FET balanced output provides ultra-clean recordings.

The mic has a cardioid polar pattern designed to reject off-axis sounds and reduce feedback. The mic's high SPL capability allows it to record loud sound sources at up to 132dB without distortion, while the compact size provides discrete placement on stage or in a studio. The Cube accepts standard 48V phantom power via an XLR connector. A mic stand adapter is included.

    Comments about MXL Cube Large-Diaphragm Cardioid Condenser Microphone:

    Had two original cubes, one of which broker after about six months. Ordered two of these for toms and used the original cube for front-kit placement. As with the original cubes, these mics really shine on drums. The presence boost make it easy to get a great sound by placement alone.

    I've had chuckles from drummers when they see the mxl logo over their kits, but nobody's ever argued with the results.

    They also work well on acoustics at the bridge and guitar cabs at around a 3-6" distance, slightly off axis.

    I'd buy another pair if anything happened to these.
