Another MXL winner that puts pricier mics to shame, the MXL 2003A is a go-to tool for those critical recording applications like acoustic guitar, where clarity, presence, and detail are deal breakers. A switch selectable bass cut and -10 dB pad provide additional recording options, and a transformerless FET preamp will please the pickiest engineers with its smooth and even response.
"The MXL 2003a is an excellent choice as an all-around instrument and vocal mic if you are unable to drop thousands of dollars on a vintage or boutique mic. It is one of the best LDC's in its price range (around $170 street) and performs as well as mics that cost 2 or 3 times as much. Kudos to MXL for bringing to the market a great sounding mic for very small change." - Aaron Rutten ("The Modern Vocalist Journal")
