I want to know about this mic a little more, I've read many, many reviews about it and from what I've read I can say that most of them were positive. I was wondering about the tube that it uses, and why people changed the tube. The mic comes with a 12AT7 tube (whatever that means)....and people change the tubes to get a (NOS) sound ????NOS
Like The Mullard 12AT7 CryoValve has a lower noise floor and is free of microphonics as compared to most other 12AT7. Having great harmonics, we think this is one of the best sounding 12AT7 we have heard.
Why change Tubes? what is NOS?
So is the MXL V69
good even if you dont change the tube?
