For 26 years, Electronic Musician’s editors have selected the best of the best music technology products and showcased them in the February issue. A team of eight editors, each with decades of experience reviewing gear, direct their insight to picking truly award-worthy products. The editors had this to say about the DX-2, “What made the DX-2 a winner this year is that it delivers a clean, solid sound with its dual-mic configuration for less than a C-note. Now that’s a reason to celebrate!”

Mike Levine, one of the Electronic Musician Editor’s Choice Award committee editors, also wrote a full review of DX-2.

The MXL DX-2 is the first dual-capsule dynamic microphone that lets you tailor the sound from one capsule to the other and all points in between, so you can easily customize your sound. The DX-2 features a unique flat-faced design and variable control knob for blending tone between the two distinctly different capsules.

The front of the microphone is a flat-faced, side-address design with high SPL tolerance for placing the microphone capsules close to the sound for optimal pickup. The back side of the DX-2 features an innovative crossfade knob, making real-time adjustments a breeze.

Capsule 1’s super cardioid large capsule design captures the warmth and fullness of your instrument, while Capsule 2’s cardioid small capsule offers superb mid-range and high-end detail. MXL designed it with a sturdy all-metal body construction for enhanced durability to withstand extended on-stage use and internal MOGAMI® wiring for pure clarity.
