Magazine Reviews
Sound on Sound, May 2011 "You can learn a lot from experimenting with a ribbon mic, and the R144 is one of the most affordable places to start." Voice Council, April 2012 "The MXL R144 produces a pleasant vintage sound that will work great in some styles, however if you need a microphone that will help your voice cut through a thick mix or provide pop-like sparkly high frequencies, then this isn’t the mic for you."
