    Saw this mic on sale at Musicians Friend for 59.99. Does anyone have any experience with it?

    Don't know about this particular model but I have a 2001 and a 603 that I'm in love with ... planning on getting a 2003 soon. Based on my experience with these other models, I'd be surprised if you weren't impressed with it ... even at the low price point

    It's a great mic. Slightly more controlled sound than the larger condensers. I like it for vocals quite a bit. It sounds fine on a mando as well but there are better. It's a deal...

    The other guys in the band are always buying mics and the bass player showed up with MXL. It sounded ok( not as good as the AT4033 or the 4050, but it costs way less!) but what it ended up being really good for was in conjuction with my AT4031 as a duel mic on guitar and dobro, those 2 together sound amazing! At these kind of prices how can you go wrong? What I was floored with was the nice case and shockmount that came with the MXL, how dey do dat?

    For $60 you about can't go wrong. I'm amazed at mine. Good crisp sound and good sensitivity.
