For warm yet transparent recordings, look no further than the MXL Revelation variable pattern tube condenser microphone. Its multi-pattern design and flat response make it invaluable in the studio.

The MXL Revelation features a hand-selected EF86 tube that will capture rich harmonics and imbue a warm character in your recordings. The gold-sputtered, 6-micron diaphragm reduces reflections for a flat frequency response, making this tube condenser the perfect choice for a wide array of uses in the studio. Its delicate yet accurate voice is ideal for use on vocals; while the full-range response of the MXL Revelation is also well utilized in front of a rocking drum kit.

The custom body is designed to minimize resonances, and its dark violet and chrome metal finish looks every bit as premium as it sounds. The MXL Revelation is built with professional grade electronics to an extremely high standard, resulting in the vintage tone of a quality tube microphone, enhanced with added clarity. Whether intended to capture intimate vocal performances or the ambience of a room, the versatility of the MXL Revelation will make it a valuable addition to your set-up.

Versatile and accurate

Twist the variable pattern dial to change the polar-pattern from figure-8, to omnidirectional, to cardioid, and everything in between. This flexibility –– combined with its rich voice –– makes the MXL Revelation an ideal choice for so many recording situations. It sounds great on everything from vocals to percussion; brass to violin; acoustic to electric. Adjust the polar-pattern to perfectly capture the subject of your recording while retaining the natural sound of the environment. Eliminate unwanted low frequencies using the built-in filter, and protect the diaphragm from high intensity sounds using the -10dB attenuation pad.

Premium quality electronics

The internals of the MXL Revelation are wired with Mogami to provide unmatched accuracy and extremely low noise. Mogami cabling is used in nearly all professional recording facilities and offers superior quality electronics. The Russian EF86 tube is hand-selected to ensure it offers the rich tone that made it famous, giving your recordings that desirably vintage sound.

Everything you need

The MXL Revelation tube condenser microphone comes with everything you might need to capture the perfect recordings. The compact power supply matches the dark violet finish of the microphone and features the variable dial for almost unlimited polar-pattern selections. The high-pass filter is set to 125Hz allowing you to counteract the proximity effect and eliminate unwanted vocal pops. The 15ft 7-pin cables are provided by Mogami for reliably low-noise wiring, while the metal and elastic shock mount provides a secure fitment for the microphone to sit in. Keep your MXL Revelation sparkling with the cleaning cloth, and protect it in the aluminum case when not in use.

With its vintage tone, and variable polar-patterns, the MXL Revelation is a must-have microphone for anyone looking to make professional recordings.

I already have three of these mics. I'm buying two more for a studio I'm setting up at a community college, and one more for me! They are smooth, clear, amazing mics that go well beyond the reasonable price.

Does this microphone come with the power supply?
Tyler C on Mar 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question! The MXL Revelation Multi-Pattern Tube Condenser Mic comes with all you need to operate it, just add a mic cable and a home for the signal and you're golden. Hope that helps.
where is this mic made. ?
Wayout on Nov 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hard to say for certain. This is from MXL's website: "We operate manufacturing facilities in the US, China, Japan, Korea and Russia, along with an additional R&D Center in Portland, Oregon."
Hope that helps.
Does this microphone come with the Shock Mount & Flight Case?
Robert B on Sep 18, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This microphone comes with everything you need, right down to white cotton gloves to prevent fingerprints from marring the finish. Yes, shock mount, power supply, multi-pin mic cord, standard XLR cord (from power supply to mic input) and a foam-lined aluminum carrying case to haul it all. The sound is awesome; good proximity effect for broadcast use (or you can roll it off with a switch). My only recommendation would be to add a pop filter for moisture protection if you're using it close up for vocals. This rivals much more expensive microphones in quality.
Is this a new Microphone?
Frank S on Mar 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this mic is brand new.

I can sing close and soft and it sounds huge.
The detail is amazing.

The days of paying 8 to 15 thousand for a mic are completely over with this mic.
At every other place, this mic costs between $885 to $953, ( which is still a bargain ), nearly $500 over the price at PSSL.
I wish I had bought the 2 mic deal!
That was really a savings.

In several words:
The Revelation may take the top spot away from the Telefunken U47.
For some professionals it already has.

Definitely the best $400 I have spent in a long time.

I got this into the studio right away and used it on male vocal, female vocal, and cello during a session. I was sold on it right away. If you don't have a tube mic, get this. If you do have a tube mic, I challenge you to put this one up next to it. It holds its own next to mics that cost ten times as much.

Amazing Bang for the Buck
This mic sounds comparable to high-end stuff for a fraction of the cost. Happy to have a pair of these in my studio!

Awesome mic!
This is an amazing microphone, not just for the price! It does best with a cleaner style preamp, vs one with character. It is very expensive-sounding. I’ve had the original Rode Classic, a couple Neuman TLM 103’s, a TLM 49, Oktava 319, AT 4047, and Aston Origin. This mic is equal, and in most cases, better in sound quality. Very big-sounding, natural and warm. Can get a little grainy sounding with an ISA One or DAV BG 500, if you like that tube character. I like it through a True Systems P Solo, where it’s very smooth.

Aural Gold
I purchased my first MXL Revelation in 2012 for $1295.00 and thought it was a steal at that price. I wanted to have an alternative to my AKG 414 MkII which is another very good mic. It is every bit the (tube) equivalent of the AKG being a bit warmer in the low end and a bit smoother in the very detailed top end. The mic is fairly heavy, so use it with a good sturdy tripod stand. It is a stellar vocal mic and is very versatile in many applications. I recently bought a pair of Revelations from PSSL and gave one of the mics to my grandson. Great price. Love this mic. Highly recommended.

The Real Deal!
I have gone through a half-dozen moderately-priced but highly-regarded microphones in my voice-over work for the past 15 years, but none ever quite satisfied...until this one. It is dramatically better and a keeper. I had been impressed by my online research, including YouTube and was inclined to buy it even at double this price...which everybody else is charging. But I took a chance...got a brand new, perfect Revelation that makes me sound the way I want. Also, I have to say I expected a no-frills PSSL experience...I mean, with the price and all, but was absolutely impressed with customer service...guys in California...Alfredo and Anthony...who were a pleasure to talk with and got things done! My congratulations and highest recommendation for both the microphone and the company. I just ordered another one! Thank you, PSSL!

Will Shock You
It's basically a U67 clone and sounds every bit as good. Don't let the MXL brand fool you. They decided to produce a top shelf mic in this instance and knocked the Revelation out of the park. Stock EH tube is great but replace it with an NOS EF86 and you've got a mic that will keep pace with $5000 competitors.
