here's a favorable review. some people just think MXL mics suck. whatever. seems like a decent mic for experimenting with recording. i got it for free along with a preamp... yours for the price of shipping. i need to clear some stuff out. US only please. it should fit in one of those $10 fixed price USPS boxes. paypal okay. please email me through the site if interested. i won't be shipping this until the last week of october because i need to do some business travel. but i'd like to find a home for it in the meantime.
