    890 Critical Vocal Condenser Microphone is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Full sounding vocals... I am very happy with the richness of my vocals using this MXL 890 microphone. For years I used a Shure SM-58 to record my vocals and wanted to use a large-diaphragm condenser microphone. It is well constructed, includes the shock mount, and sounds great. Use a (lollypop) pop filter as recommended.
