FANTASTIC

Comments about MXL 990 USB Powered Condenser Microphone:

Produces a very clear sound. At the time of my purchase Wood Wind and Brass Wind did not have the foam Wind Screen to go over the Microphone so I bought the MXL WS-002 FOAM WINDSCREEN at Amazon.com. The Foam windscreen serves two purposes; that being, to produce a more clear sound, but the most important purpose is to keep the microphone DRY! Moisture can kill this type of microphone. The MXL 990 USB also gives a web sight to download Software called a Virtual Pre-Amp. Make sure that every time that you first start the Pre-Amp to slide the bar up and down to engage the Pre-Amp. I am a Musician; so when I record I play close to the Microphone, and I turn everything off; meaning the Pre-Amp, and my recording Boost that comes with Windows XP; if I do not do this the Microphone works too good; for example, when you use the downloaded Software Pre-Amp you can stand away from the Microphone for at least twenty feet if not even more than that and it sounds like you are right next to the microphone. The Microphone also comes with a nice Plastic Carrying case that has a foam protection inside liner. I keep the moisture prevention pack that comes with the Microphone inside just for extra protection.
