For today only, Musician’s Friend is offering the MXL Midnight 990 Condenser Microphone for $59.99 shipped. That’s $40 off the going rate and the best price we can find. While we saw the standard champagne colorway go for $55 just ahead of Black Friday, we have never seen the Midnight model go for less than $100 at Amazon. In fact, this is matching the all-time on either color outside of the pre-Black Friday deal. It features a 30Hz to 20kHz frequency response range and is a great budget-friendly option for those looking to upgrade from a USB-only recording setup. It includes the mic clip, shockmount and carrying case. Rated 4+ stars.

MXL 770 Cardioid Condenser Microphone $60 shipped (orig. $170)

Amazon is offering the MXL 770 Cardioid Condenser Microphone for $59.99 shipped (“Arrives before Christmas”). Thats $110 under the original listing, $5 under Guitar Center’s used price and the best we can find.

An affordable option for podcasting and home music recording, the 770 has a “high quality” FET preamp and comes with a shock mount and carrying case. It requires phantom power so you’ll need an audio interface to use it (unlike say a USB mic from Blue). But it is also more affordable than most USB options of a similar quality right now.


  • Gold-sputtered, 6-micron, low distortion diaphragm
  • FET preamp with balanced output
  • Switchable bass cut and -10dB pad
  • Legendary MXL sonic characteristics
  • Comes with shock mount and rugged carrying case

It has received a 4.7/5 star rating from over 140 Amazon customers. Keep an eye on Amazon’s Green Monday week sales for deals all week long on production gear and be sure to check out our 2014 gift guide: Making music with your iPhone, iPad, and Mac.
