The MXL Genesis is a masterfully engineered tube microphone with features and performance levels found in mics priced thousands of pounds more. From intimate vocal recordings to fast-attacking rap, the Genesis cuts beautifully through the mix with spectacular detail. Recording professionals and musicians are praising the Genesis for its clean highs, warm mids, and tight bottom-end, features attributed in part to the genuine Mullard 12AT7 tube.

The MXL Genesis is supplied with a high-isolation shockmount, metal mesh pop filter and microfibre cleaning cloth included.

Magazine Reviews
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!" http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/jul10/articles/mxlgenesis.htm http://recordinghacks.com/microphones/MXL/Genesis
