The MXL 991 is a small diaphragm condenser microphone that I've used in the studio on acoustic guitar, drum overheads, hi hat, other acoustic stringed instruments and on things that is essential to have a good high frequency response. Since it has a small diaphragm, it makes it perfect for these instruments because it won't capture all of the low end rubble that a large diaphragm mic would.

OVERALL OPINION

I've had this mic for about 3 years and the things I like most about it is the great clarity and the price. I've used a few other low end small diaphragm condensers and I would say I like this one the best because it has a great high end frequency response and sounds great on acoustic guitar and cymbals. For the price I couldn't find a better small diaphragm condenser mic and even though it doesn't sound as great as some higher end mics, its got the best price of all of them. I bought it in a pack with the MXL 990, and I like this mic much better than that one. I would have paid the same price I paid for both just for this one. Just because of how cheap it is I plan to keep my MXL 991 for a while even if I decide to upgrade later down the road.
