I've been looking at this Buy MXL V69 Mogami Edition Tube Microphone | Condenser Microphones | Musician's Friend

But i am iffy about buying it, because ive never heard anything good about MXL

Its actually a pretty cool mic. It does not good used nearly as much as my higher end mics, but I am glad I have one in the collection.

No contest, the V69ME.

I would also consider the V6 and M3 or some of their new offerings too.

Its a "darker" mic that's for sure, but it sounds pretty good, i would look at changing the Tube if you have some extra cash.

The early version has a small tube soldered on a PCB, the later version has a normal tube on a socket.

The V69 I use to own definitely had some low end warmth to the sound but I found the top end too harsh for my liking. Even after a tube swap to a NOS Mullard 12at7 the iop end was still too essy for me......
