MXL Genesis overview

  • 1Description

The MXL Genesis Tube Condenser Microphone delivers a professional solution for home studio, project studio and professional studio recording. The Mullard 12AT7 tube and large diaphragm cardioid capsule deliver the warmth, smooth highs and tight low-end associated with higher priced tube microphones.

A -10dB Pad switch is provided for maximizing headroom and minimizing distortion when capturing excessive transients (peaks). A low-frequency roll-off switch minimizes low-end noise such as hum, wind or proximity effect.

The Genesis features a cardioid polar pattern that effectively minimizes noise and off-axis feedback. Its wide frequency response and warm audio reproduction add character to both vocal and instruments alike. A dedicated power supply and cable is included.
