Last time we posted on MXL, it was all about female vocals and the 770 mic. This time, let’s listen to a male voice and the tube version of the MXL Genesis condenser microphone.
This is also a no nonsense video without a sales pitch and a built-in marketing scheme. You simply get to hear the mic and that’s it! Oh, and the vocalist is Brian Williams – a vocal instructor at the Musicians Institute in LA.
