Designed for recording vocals and instruments in a studio setting, the 870 is a large-diaphragm condenser microphone from MXL. Its capsule features an on-board FET preamp with a balanced out. The microphone picks up sound in a cardioid polar pattern, rendering this unit suitable for situations in which minimizing sound directly behind the mic is a must.

Also, it includes a high-isolation shockmount to mitigate any noise coming from the floor, such as foot stamps and leaning sounds. A microfiber cloth is provided to clean the unit. Note that the microphone requires 48V phantom power, available in most preamps and recorders.
