    "When MXL asked me try their flagship "Genesis" microphone, I didn't hesitate in taking up their offer. I have used numerous MXL mics over the years, and have always had excellent results. Initially, I tried the Genesis as a room mic on a grand piano, and the results were just amazing. From the full bottom end to sparkling highs, it gave me the natural sound I wanted, with next to no EQ required. With female vocals it was simply stunning. There is something about the warmth and intimacy of this microphone that I have previously only been able to capture with microphones costing much more. What truly surprised me though, was when I tried it on the outside of a kick drum where I previously used my FET 47. The FET 47 is enjoying a long vacation in my Mic Locker. The guys at MXL seem to be continually raising the bar for quality in affordable mics. With great products and amazing customer service, MXL are always high on my list of preferred equipment when I need to get the job done."
