SOS Reviews MXL Rev II
The Revelation II delivers a natural sounding vocal recording, with a low end that is solid and smooth but not overblown in any way.
The Revelation II is a studio microphone that delivers the warmth and intimacy of a classic tube microphone with a lush mid-range providing a unique color and sound to any microphone locker. A dual gold-sputtered, 6-micron diaphragm and hand-selected EF86 pentode tube provide warmth and character giving the Revelation II an iconic sound. The Revelation II’s variable selection knob allows for limitless transitions between cardioid, omnidirectional, and figure-8 polar patterns. Whether you record vocals, instruments, percussion or simply use it as a room mic, the Revelation II brings a classic sound in any recording application.
The deep midrange and balanced top end of the Revelation II helps it becomes a true utility in the studio. Tame harsh sources like cymbals or acoustic guitar or bring out the depth in a vocalist. The variable polar pattern allows creators to dial in a unique and purpose-driven sound in any recording space.
