The MXL 770 has received lots of praise for its warm tone and versatility. This review by Podcastage is no exception, as it is being put to the test on electric and acoustic guitar as well as vocals.
The MXL 770 is a very affordable condenser microphone that aims at musicians getting started recording at home. With that in mind, the summary from Podcastage’s review is that it sounds great on electric guitar and vocals, but maybe lacks a bit of high-end on acoustic guitar, which is all part of its ‘warm’ tone design.
Further, the mic is being recommended for recording musicians rather than gaming podcasters, who do live commentary while they game. But hey, while gaming is cool, all that really matters to us is how well it delivers recording music, which it was born to do!
