Lives for gear

OK, I'm gonna come to this guy's defense. MXL makes some damn fine mics. One of the first inexpensive tube mics ever made was the MXL V77. With a simple mod (installing a tube socket and a premium NOS 12 AY7) it became the best sounding mic for my own vocals I've ever used (as opposed to a Neumann U87, U67--yes, a real U67, Tele tube mics etc.) I've also got an MXL 5000 that's one of my favorite vocal mics. The Revelation and Genesis are also very good mics IMHO.
