El Segundo, CA (January 22, 2014) – MXL Microphones announces the release of its new CR77 Live Stage Dynamic Vocal Microphone at Winter NAMM 2014. The CR77 is the latest addition to the CR Series microphones that boast matte black bodies with black chrome accents. It is the first dynamic microphone in the series and the first mic of its kind developed by MXL.
The MXL CR77 design emphasizes clear, vibrant sound. Behind the grill, an integrated foam windscreen filters out plosives and background noise while the super cardioid polar pattern rejects periphery noise. The CR77 features a built-in shockmount to reduce noise from floor vibrations, allowing the singer to come in close to the mic while performing. The CR77’s construction is robust and heavy to withstand the rigors of the road.
MXL Regional Sales Manager Scott Kreuckeberg led the product development of the CR77. He says, “This is an ambitious project for us to move out of the studio, where we’re comfortable, and move into the live stage world and provide a high quality, dynamic microphone. We tested and perfected this capsule over many months to come up with the exact tonality we wanted. It’s a modern, brighter tonality mic housed in a vintage body, great for performers looking for a stage mic with character.”
