MXL V87 Review

The MXL V87 is a fixed-cardioid large-diaphragm, low-noise FET condenser microphone,  designed for the most critical recording applications. MXL V87 is excellent for vocal, acoustic guitars, and pianos. Also, it is great for recording pop, R&B, and roc. The MXL V87 has a very low proximity effect—perfectly suited for up-close voice or instrument recording. It has a warm pleasing sound. It has a punchy midrange and full low-end with the proper mix of warmth and clarity.

The MXL V87 microphone is very sensitive, readily revealing very subtle sonic details. It also tends to pick up sounds outside the pattern more than some designs, which can lead to powerful feedback if you are not careful. V87’s sound quality and solid construction make this a valuable addition to your studio.
