MXL Microphones Introduces New Model 604

MXL, the professional audio division of Marshall Electronics and a leader in high quality, affordable microphones, introduces the new MXL 604 Dual Capsule Instrument Miking System. Building upon the success of its predecessor, the MXL 603, the new MXL 604 delivers stellar performance and a wide dynamic range—making this new microphone an excellent choice for the most demanding instrument miking applications.

A cardioid condenser pressure gradient microphone with an interchangeable omni-directional capsule, the MXL 604 features a –10 dB attenuation switch that enables the microphone to better handle high sound pressure levels, along with selectable low frequency roll-off capability to compensate for proximity effect or to eliminate wind noise during outdoor recording. This combination of features makes the microphone the perfect choice for recording acoustic guitar, as well as ambient and overhead drum miking.

The MXL 604’s transformerless design provides a solid bottom and an extremely open top end sound. The microphone is internally wired with world-renowned Mogami cable for sonic integrity. This beautifully crafted microphone features a satin silver finish with etched engravings, yet its rugged design makes it a great choice for use on the road. The MXL 604 is supplied with mic clip, a windscreen, and a wood storage box.

Wayne Freeman, MXL’s Director of Sales and Marketing, commented on the company’s new offering, “As the successor to our highly successful MXL 603, the new MXL 604 leverages the latest microphone design and engineering technologies. In doing so, the 604’s performance elevates considerably. This is a microphone that delivers the right combination of performance and value.”

The MXL 604 Dual Capsule Instrument Miking System carries an MSRP of $179.95 and will be available in October 2005.
