The MXL Genesis HE is a masterfully engineered tube microphone that cuts beautifully through the mix with spectacular detail. Recording professionals and musicians praise the Genesis for its clean highs, warm mids, and tight bottom-end. This award-winner makes magnificent recordings for any singer or genre. The rich vintage tone is attributed in part to the genuine Mullard 12AT7 tube. Vocals stay above the other tracks, with little or no EQ needed.
