L'avis de ssebs"un bel outsider"

MXL V69
Grande membrane, à lampe (donc alim séparée).
Une valise alu protège bien l'ensemble.

AVIS GLOBAL

J'ai acheté ce micro il y a peu en tombant sur une occasion.
Je me suis décidé après avoir plusieurs excellents avis sur internet.
C'est mon 1er micro à tube, il est clair que cela a une chaleur particulière: par rapport à mon se2200a, c'est presque autant détaillé mais moins froid, plus rond sans perdre en nuances. A côté le se2200a sonne presque trop chirurgical.
J'ai remplacé le tube d'origine par un mullard, ce qui a encore gagné en qualité! MXL envoie par email un pdf expliquant comment faire quand on le demande.
NB: je n'avais pas le cable xlr (3 broches) livré d'origine, j'ai donc acheté un cable planet waves "custom pro", je ne sais pas à quel pourcentage du résultat ce cable participe.

L'avis de U-FLYstudio

MXL V69
Micro statique à lampe vendu complet avec valise alu, cable 7 broches mogami, XLR 3 broches mogami, bonnette, alim, cable secteur et suspension, la finition et très correct
excellent rapport S/B, niveau de sortie inférieur au Neumann U87 de 3 dB.
j'ai changé la lampe pour une Mullard 12AT7WA, ce n'est pas très compliqué à changer, 6 vis à enlever, les 2 vis de maintient de la lampe + 2 x 2 vis des plaques sous la lampe !

AVIS GLOBAL

A ce prix là, ce sont des micros à sortir quand on doit à tout prix faire une prise ou les conditions ne permettent pas resonnablement de sortir la grosse artillerie (gros patch en grands diaphragms, et budget réduit tout simplement.)

Il est très exagéré dans l'extreme aigu, mais interessant sur certaines guitares acosutiques,
je le trouve cohérent, très stable, joli timbre, très detaillé en Over heads batterie, en timbales, percus, c'est bien.
en voix je lui prefère quand même le U87, plus chaud et avec une image centrale plus précise.
en piano, moin bien que mes DPA 4015 qui il faut dire sonnent vraiment très bien et valent 4000 euros le couple !!!!!! hum hum !!!!!

en fait je fais les choeurs avec, et les over drum sur les prod un peu varièt ! pour les guitare, c'est sympa si on utilise un deuxième micro plus chaud, type U89 ou KM74 !

pour un micro à 300 euros, ou 400 euros avec une vraie belle lampe,
je crois qu'il n'y a pas grand mal à dire !

MXL V69
Micro lampe, blabla... voire la fiche technique fournie par le constructeur sur leur site

super... seul hic, aucun sélecteur ou pad d'atténuation... pour moi ce n'est pas un problème en soi, mais je peux concevoir qu'on eût apprécié leur présence. J'enlève donc un point.

AVIS GLOBAL

Je l'ai depuis quelques semaines à peine et comme j'utilisais un SHURE SM58... y'a un monde de différence.

L'édition limitée est livré avec coffre + bonnette mousse + suspension + alim externe et cables Mogami... oui, tout ça !!!

Faute de moyens, je n'ai pas pu effectuer des comparaisons avec d'autres micros, mais ça m'a l'air tellement bon... de plus, si on lit les critiques dans la presse et sur internet; on tombe TRES RAREMENT, pour ainsi dire jamais d'ailleurs, sur des avis négatifs...

mon avis au sujet du rapport qualité/prix risque d'être "injuste" du fait que j'ai eu le micro à 50% de son prix (à cause d'une liquidation de fin de stock)... rien que pour ça je mettrais 10/10... sinon ce serait peut-être 9... bref, ça reste haut !!!

si je referais ce choix ? seul le futur le dira vraiment, mais là, je dirais oui.

L'avis de chrislieck (contenu en anglais)"Good but not for vocals."

MXL V69
This line of mics from MXL I don't care for on vocals whatsoever. They have a real high mid sound. I don't like this mic for vocals. I have used it in my studio www.chrislieckstudios.com daily for room micing. It is fine as a room mic but not for vocals. If you have a female vocalist that has high mid range tones and or a head voice then this mic will not work for your needs. It even makes it worse when you try to compress the signal too much. I think that the bump at around 4K is rather annoying for recording what it is intended for vocals. Now it is reasonably price and does look good.

OVERALL OPINION

Good for room mic application. I do love it for room micing drums or right in front of the kick drum as a room mic. The high mid bump softens well for hard hitting drum sets for some reason. It almost has a room compressed sound that is not typical from most mics in this price range. I have used almost every MXL made and I really love there mics but it seems that each one has a particular sound and so you can't use this mic for toms or inner kick drums but rather room or a less present sound. I like the look of the mic and it is very well made. The boost in the high mid range does not make this a choice that I prefer for a female vocalist nor a high sounding male singer as when you add compression to the mic it sounds worse and more harsh. I think that the idea was to have a more sensitive and better looking version of the MXL 990 but I like the 990 a great deal better and it is less in price. If I were buying a mic under the $150 range I would look around on Ebay and find a pair of MXL 990 mics and use them as a pair and you would have two great, more flat mics to use on several other things aside from vocals.

I would buy the MXL 990 over this mic.

Too much high mid to high boost for vocals.

Use this for room mic on drums it is great for that.

L'avis de mooseherman (contenu en anglais)"Really solid Cheap Tube Mic"

MXL V69
This is a tube condenser microphone which comes with its own power supply. The microphone is made by MXL, a lesser known company. It is definitely only really useful in a studio environment. If there is ambient noise in a recording space, this mic will pick it up, so really you should only use it if it's going to work well for you. Live shows are a no-no. This mic is definitely really versatile, but it's also incredibly fragile. It's not as fragile as a ribbon microphone but It's definitely no SM57 so be careful.

OVERALL OPINION

I think that for the price, this microphone is a really solid choice. It certainly is not going to hold up to an AKG N-1 or a Neumann U67, but it's also a fraction of the price of one of those mics. I recently did a "shootout", or comparison of this mic with the AKG N-1, and I found it to be relatively comparable to it. It was certainly brighter and had a harder high end, which is not always the best thing in a tube mic. This mic tends not to be as "warm" as the N-1 but it has a brighter high end, so it has its own advantages as well. However, certain vocalists actually sounded better with this than the N-1, mainly because they were not belting it out as much. I find that this mic is good on acoustic guitars, vocals, and even as a room mic for drums. I like it on lower stringed instruments like cello and viola, and to a SLIGHTLY lesser extent, violin. It's actually great on most instruments. While I am spoiled in the sense that I regularly get to use awesome mics like the previously mentioned tube mics, I feel like I would recommend this one because it's so much cheaper. If you can't afford one of those other ones, I would definitely get this one.

L'avis de moosers (contenu en anglais)

MXL V69
The MXL V69 is a large diaphragm tube condenser microphone that is made for use in the recording studio.  It comes with a case, the power supply, a shock mount, and the proper cable to plug this into the power supply.  It is definitely not meant for any other sort of use beyond recording as it is somewhat fragile and needs to be treated with care.

OVERALL OPINION

I've been using the MXL V69 for a little less than a year and while I wasn't expecting all that much from this mic, I'm not a big fan of the way this mic sounds.  While it is certainly cheap, I do think that it is a bit overpriced because it doesn't have a great sound quality in my opinion.  While of course tube condenser microphone for $300 USD sounds like a great deal, for me it isn't worth it because while it does sound okay, it doesn't sound like a $300 mic.  I've used it a number of times for vocals and while it does have a warmth to it that is heard in most tube mics, it lacks a certain clarity and is almost a bit too fat sounding.  I look for a mix of clarity and warmth in a tube mic and to me this really just has too much warmth.  While some might view this as a good thing, for me it clouds the picture and doesn't give you a true sound of what you are recording.  While this looks like an attractive option for home studio owners, I would recommend looking into other microphone even if they are not tube mics.  I know that it is cool to have a tube mic in the collection, but I would recommend getting a cheaper solid state condenser mic as there are pleantly that sound cleaner and are more useful than this one.  I would recommend trying this out if you are in the market for a tube condenser, but make sure to shop around to see what else is out there.
