    Hi folks!
    Have you tested these two mics? they are popping down here for very nice prices. I assume they are in the same boast of C300OB´s and GT55´s..
    Nice friday

    A friend of mine has the v76, and Joe Barresi got a pair. They were a rage when they first came out because of the cost to performance ratio. I hear there good. Haven't used them myself.

    Alecio,

    I have two V67G's (G=Green colored body, with gold grill). Very colored, warm-sounding microphone. Has a slight vintage texture to it. Very good on male vocals, even on certain guitar cabs! These get a lot of use here and there.

    I also have the V93M- a "Mars Music" version of the MXL2003. Same mic, just branded differently when sold through "Mars" (out of business). It can be pretty useable on acoustic sources... a few vocals, as far as I've tried. It sounds fairly "neutral", not very colored. I call this the "poor man's TLM-103" but use this term loosely.

    do you guys think they could be used for capturing strings sessions? At least the model that is not so colored..
    Thanks

    I own or used to own the following MXL mics:

    2001
    1006 (aka v63m)
    603s
    v67g
    v77 (tube mic)
    990

    Have not tried the 2003 yet.

    For the money, the v67g absolutely rocks! I own 2 of them and use them all the time.

    I haven't heard too much about the 2003

    I don't have the 67G, but I do have two of the 67M (the special "Mogami" version, that I got from MARS), and a V57. I live them all. The 67s get used for everything from vocals to kick drum mics (seriously).
    The 57 is a better vocal mic, and I only have one of those, but it's the closest I have to my U87ai, at least through a nice pre. I'm very happy with the value for dollar of the MXL's.
