MXL V63M Features
This is not a full featured microphone. It is a very basic microphone with a cardiod (heart shaped) polar pattern. This means it is more sensitive to sound source at its front. Therefore, you have to adjust the mic to face the vocalist or guitarist. There is some room to experiment with slanting positioning. You should keep experimenting with every mic you have and see what position works out best. Here are the key features:
- 1 diameter 6-micron-thick diaphragm that delivers high sensitivity and detailed recordings
- Wired with Mogami wire for added clarity
- Balanced transformerless output for low noise
- Encased in a heavy-duty brass enclosure
- 30Hz-20kHz frequency response
- Includes spider shock mount (also fits Neumann mics)
- Requires 48 Volt phantom power through XLR connector
