MXL Genesis FET Condenser Microphone

The Genesis FET is designed to replicate the finest characteristics of its predecessor with the added convenience of solid state electronics. The Genesis FET is an outstanding vocal mic, capable of capturing the details of any performance from soulful singers to raw rappers. It features low noise FET circuitry and Mogambi cable to ensure clean, natural recordings.

MXL's Genesis FET Vocal Condenser Microphone is the newest member of the acclaimed Genesis family that also includes the Genesis and Genesis II.

The sound of the Genesis FET has been carefully modeled for the past 3 years by performing thousands of comparison tests with many other expensive solid state mics and vintage tube mics, in addition to MXL's own Genesis II and new Revelation Solo tube mics. The result is a solid state microphone with a warm sound reminiscent of the finest tube microphones.

Offering users top quality performance at a significantly lower price than comparable microphones. It will come complete with a shockmount, pop filter, and wooden box. The Genesis FET features an eye-catching red body with a dazzling gold grill.







"From the full bottom end to sparkling highs, it gave me the natural sound I wanted, with next to no EQ required. With female vocals it was simply stunning. There is something about the warmth and intimacy of this microphone that I have previously only been able to capture with microphones costing much more."

- Anthony 'Rocky' Gallo, Cheif Engineer 'The Cutting Room', NYC

"The MXL Genesis is a microphone that just can?t be ignored. Not only does it sound amazing, but it looks good too. I even asked if I could have one to wear around my neck!"


- Fingazz, Producer/Engineer

Magazine Reviews
Harmony Central, November 2013 "This is a very nice sounding microphone with tight lows, controlled, detailed midrange and an open sounding top end. There is no significant emphasis on any particular part of the audible frequency spectrum, making it a very good choice for "all-around" use on a variety of instruments and vocalists." Sound on Sound, July 2010 "The Genesis is a very capable, mid‑priced tube mic that can handle most studio tasks well but is particularly good as a vocal mic. It would also look good in pairs hanging off the front of a pimp's limo in the 1981 film Escape From New York!"
