Quick Overview

The MXL Cr89 is a large diaphragm condenser microphone wrapped in sharply contrasted black and chrome.

The MXL Cr89 is a large diaphragm condenser microphone wrapped in sharply contrasted black and chrome. The sound is every bit as bold as the body; the Cr89 can handle subtle acoustic guitar tones and loud vocals with the same sonic integrity. The Cr89 has low noise circuitry and a very low proximity effect, making it ideal for up-close recording. At home on instruments and vocals, the Cr89's body design minimizes body resonance while the tuned grill cavity reduces standing waves and harmonic distortion.


MXL wins in value and quality over the high-end Sony C800PAC condenser microphone.
"I was recording vocals with a male artist that I had previously recorded with a Sony C800G. Both the artist and myself had been pleased with the performance of the C-800G, but I was curious to see how the CR89 would sound compared to the Sony. I was suprised when we both selected the CR89 as our preferred mic..."
