MXL CR21 Small-Diaphragm Instrument Microphones with Transformless Preamp, Pair
The state-of-the-art MXL CR21 Pair of microphones record in vivid detail. Suited for drum overheads, acoustic instruments, and pianos; the pencil condensers are also a powerful option in tight situations. The CR21 mics sound clean, articulate, and full. With a fast transient response, the mics accurately pick up every scintillating detail of the performance. The black and black chrome design lends character while staying unobtrusive.
Each microphone has a 22 millimeter gold-sputtered diaphragm and a fixed cardioid pickup pattern. Condenser microphones are very sensitive, readily revealing very subtle sonic details. They also tend to pick up sounds outside the pattern more than some designs, which can lead to powerful feedback if you are not careful. MXL strongly advises experimentation with placement and isolation requirements with the gain initially set low to avoid equipment (and ear) damage.
MXL is a leading manufacturer of high performance audio products for professionals and recording enthusiasts around the world.
