About

Large-diaphragm microphones are widely used to record vocals and other featured sound sources due to their low noise and ability to capture more acoustic energy than smaller diaphragm mics. The 440 is a large-diaphragm condenser microphone designed to capture the detail and rich sound of vocals, stringed instruments, and percussion recordings. By combining a FET preamp with a balanced output, the 440 delivers uncompromised tonal quality and low noise for professional recordings. The MXL 440 handles a broad range of applications expertly and will be a welcome addition to any studio.
