MXL Genesis
Flagship Tube Microphone

The MXL Genesis is a masterfully engineered tube microphone with features and performance levels found in mics priced thousands of dollars more. From intimate vocal recordings to fast-attacking rap, the Genesis cuts beautifully through the mix with spectacular detail. Recording professionals and musicians are praising the Genesis for its clean highs, warm mids, and tight bottom-end, features attributed in part to the genuine Mullard 12AT7 tube.

The MXL Genesis is your bridge to music history. This tube microphone lets singers keep one foot in the studio and one foot in the golden age of radio, with a rich vintage tone massaging every note. The sound is full at the bottom and sparkling at the top-and smooth and warm everywhere else. Vocals stay above the other tracks, with little or no EQ needed. This award-winner makes magnificent recordings-any singer, any genre.
