Product Description

MXL - 860 Ribbon Microphone 

This ribbon is the real deal, don't be fooled by the low price! We've recorded comparisons with the 860 to a Royer 121 and the results are amazing. it's very hard to pick which is which even by a long time Royer user and audio professional that was using our studio at the time. You'll be recording beautiful ribbon recordings for a long time with the 860.

The MXL 860 Side Address Ribbon Microphone is compact and versatile, making it ideal for many recording applications. The distinctive MXL 860 Ribbon has a durable cast metal body that makes it an excellent utility mic. It can be positioned virtually anywhere in a studio to record a wide range of instruments, including percussion. Comes with shockmount and microfiber cleaning cloth.
