Both feature MXL’s take on a K67 capsule, with a 6-micron, gold-sputtered diaphragm, 32mm in diameter. This is a stupid pointless post, but I've been messing around in a DAW for a while now, using EQ, compression, reverb, etc. Harmony Central's Phil O'Keefe opens the box and takes a first look at the new MXL Revelation Solo microphone. The cylinder has slightly rounded corners moving toward the flat top and no angles on the sides. The Revelation Solo is essentially the same mic, but fixed in a cardioid pattern. Visit us on https://www.facebook.com/MXLmics to have a chance to win the new Revelation SOLO. I bought it online and they currently have it selling for as little as $349.99, brand new. The capsule is housed in a large bulbous grille, similar in style to that of a U 47. MXL Revelation Solo selling new for cheap. Power Requirements Impedance: 140 ohms The MXL Revelation Solo uses an EF86 tube that requires a dedicated power sup- ply unit (included with your microphone). Even if your mixer has phantom power, it is Pre-Attenuation Switch: 0 dB, -10 dB recommended that you defeat the phantom power as a precautionary measure when it is not needed to power other mics that you might also be using. I can't say that I actually ever really knew what I was doing though. I recently purchased a MXL Revelation that I sent back due to purely cosmetic reasons, and after I returned it, I saw that I could get the Solo version for quite a bit cheaper than it's regular retail price of $800.
