"great quality great price good mic"
 
I've been into recording since 1979 used a lot of microphones my favorite a sinnheiser but this mic preforms great on vocals ,especially bass vocals when EQed properly.Also does well on snare drums .high end is lacking some but overall for the money a great deal on a good product.

That will do the job !!!
 
Wow, I'm impressed by the sound quality for the price. Never expected to get something that good for under $. Packaging however was... bad. It was broken and is kind on the minimal side. Roughly, I understand that I was buying a mic not a package, but it left some marks on the mic that I was not so warm about. But nothing to change the sound.

MCA SP1 - Decent mic for a decent price.
 
I've been into recording for the last 30 years or so and I've used everything from inexpensive dynamics to high end Neumann condensors. I purchased a pair of MCA SP1's based on a review I read on a web blog, which gave it high praise for such an inexpensive mic. I tested these mic's on several instruments including an acoustic guitar, electric guitar amp, acoustic bass, drums (as tom mic's). The mic's did a good job on each instrument and it didn't take me long to find good positions for each in...

Not impressed
 
This was my first attempt at purchasing a mic that was more that what comes with your computer. Im not impressed.Its less than 6 months old and the cartoid pickup inside the cage has come loose and is bumping into the sides of the bracket it sits in and is making loud booming noises with just the slightest touch or movement to it while it is recording. I wasn't familiar with Phantom power before purchasing this mic, so unless you have a converter already your going to need to fork out more money...

Perfect option for the beginner
 
I have little to no experience with audio equipment, and i just wanted a decent microphone to experiment with. At this price this mic fits that bill, perfectly. It is possibly the greatest mic at this price point and if you are starting out it would be a great choice for vocals, guitar, percussion etc. It records all these reasonable well. The stand adapter it comes with is kind of useless on it own so keep in mind that you might have to look for something to hold it.

Best [$] dollar condenser mic ever made!
 
Well I didn't expect it to sound that great for only [$] but when I plugged it in I couldn't believe how good it sounded! Sure it was plugged into a $800 dollar daking mic preamp and using a mogami cable which the cable by itself cost more than the mic but WOW! I ABed it to my AT4050 mic (a $500 dollar mic). The MCA SP1 did not have quite as much top end and has a bit of a peak around 250hz which needs fixing with EQ later but for [$], I can't believe how similar it sounds to high end mics. If y...

Completely Terrible!
 
These microphones are complete garbage. I brought the first one and it had no pickup at all, no sound came out of it. Then I replaced it with a new one and that one was bad as well. At first I thought it was my system until I hooked my dynamic mic back up everything was clear and smooth. Those mics are very defected. I would not recommend them to anyone.

MXL MCA SP1
 
Starting off as a young producer I needed a cheap but also not a cheaply made microphone. I found that the MCA SP1 can offer quality without having to dig into your wallet to purchase. I'm running two of these into my PreSonus AudioBox and the quality for me is great. Only thing I wish came with it would've been a shock mount, but you can easily fix this by going to the MXL website and looking at the shockmounts there.There are no real cons for me, I'm not too picky as of now, just starting off ...

Exactly what I needed.
 
I purchased this microphone to use in a home recording studio to record myself for the purposes of practice and make audition tapes. So far it has accurately captured the sound my instrument (double bass, acoustic guitar). After reading a lot of reviews I chose this microphone because it seemed to represent a good value and would be an inexpensive microphone to invest it while I learned some recording basics and figured out my DAW. I don't have very much experience as an engineer, but I do have ...
