    Comments about MXL V88s Large Studio Diaphragm Condenser Microphone:

    The cost versus performance would be rated high near the high b to b+. it has a close to flat response which is nice since it adjusting would be easily configured. it has a pretty low noise at 14db and also has a verseatility in acoustics to percussion and also strong to fast pacing vocals.
