Low Noise Condenser Microphone

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.

  • Top-quality condenser microphone for vocals and instruments
  • Ideal for acoustic guitars, strings, pianos and room sound

  • Very low proximity effect—great for up-close recording
  • Supplied with heavy duty shock mount, and real wood storage box
