From whisper-soft vocals to fast-firing rap, the MXL V88 truly captures the human voice and delivers exceptional instrument recordings. The MXL V88 is flexible, too. Use two for precise stereo recordings of overhead drums; three for piano and instrument recordings, even build your own surround sound recording with five MXL V88s.

This review is from: MXL MXLV88 Studio Condenser Mic
Pros: I spent 28 years in radio, as an announcer, program producer and Chief Engineer, so have a lot of time listing to recordings of choirs, and listening to my own voice through headphones and on monitors.
I had been using a condenser mic for recording a choir, but decided to upgrade, and picked this one based on the reviews. I am _very_ pleased. Used for choral recording, there was a significant improvement in the quality of the audio over a lower end MXL mic. Much clearer and cleaner, with a smooth response. Same equipment, even the cables were the same - only the mic was changed.
I then used the mics for some voice work. I was pleased with the results, and like the sound as well or better than the AKG 414 that I had used on air for years.
Great mic, with a very good shock mount. It holds the mic firmly. The aluminum cases are nice too, and protect the mic well. No regrets in buying this mic.
Other Thoughts: If you had suggested when I started in radio that I would be able to find a mic with this kind of quality for this price, I wouldn't have believed you.
