MXL Ships MXL 190 Cardioid Condenser Microphone


MXL Microphones, the professional audio division of Marshall Electronics, is pleased to announce that the MXL 190 cardioid condenser microphone is now shipping and available exclusively through MusiciansFriend.com.

Featuring low-noise FET design, balanced transformer coupled output, and Mogami wiring, the new 190 is a premium cardioid condenser microphone that is priced well within reach of the home and project studio recordist.

The MXL 190 is well suited to capture everything from the airy tones of the piccolo to the slap of the bass guitar—making it an exceptional choice for a wide range of recording application, thanks to a frequency response of 20 Hz-20 kHz. The microphone's custom chamber has been tuned to complement the capsule's response, delivering an open, airy sound that is transparent without being overly bright.

To ensure studio quality performance, the versatile MXL 190 uses a six micron condenser pressure gradient capsule and features a low-noise FET (field-effect transistor) preamp with balanced transformer coupled output. Contributing further to its pristine audio quality is the fact that this microphone is internally wired with Mogami cable—the choice of recording professionals everywhere.

The MXL 190 utilizes a six micron condenser pressure gradient capsule with a cardioid polar pattern—enabling the microphone to be extremely versatile for a multitude of recording tasks. To help make level matching easy, the 190 incorporates a 0/-10dB attenuation switch—making it a snap to adapt to any signal source.
