MXL V67G Large Capsule Condenser Microphone

There seems to be a lot of manufacturers coming up with el-cheapo condenser microphones nowadays. The reason I say they are el-cheapo is because they are not as expensive as the top-end condenser mikes like those made by Neumann, AKG and the like. One thing that makes them cheap is that these are probably made in China, and microphones like these only have one polar pattern, and that is cardioid. As far as I am concerned, this would be great for some vocals, as an overhead drum-kit microphone or even as a sidefill microphone. Given the large size of its condenser diaphragm, and its relatively cheap price, it should be pretty attractive. But it does not have the robustness of a good dynamic cardioid microphone like the good old SM58. It is relatively expensive here in Singapore…going for about $250 at one online retailer. Personally? I would not get it. If I had a recording studio, I would probably get those real condenser microphones with many polar pattern choices. Flexibility is the key.
