The MXL 2003A provides outstanding value for a studio condenser microphone in this price range and even puts some more expensive mics to shame! Suitable in a wide range of recording environments, the MXL 2003A also has a selectable bass cut and -10 db pad which can expand it's recording functionality even further. Internally wired with high quality Mogami and with a transformerless FET preamp, the 2003A will provide a smooth, even response.
"The MXL 2003a is an excellent choice as an all-around instrument and vocal mic if you are unable to drop thousands of dollars on a vintage or boutique mic. It is one of the best LDC's in its price range (around $170 street) and performs as well as mics that cost 2 or 3 times as much. Kudos to MXL for bringing to the market a great sounding mic for very small change."
