The MXL Genesis 11 takes the first generation Genesis microphone to a new height of performance and versatility. The Genesis II borrows the outstanding qualities of the original Genesis and adds our dual diaphragm capsule and patented warm and bright switch. This switch allows you to change the tonality of the mic to suit your application. The Genesis II also includes the celebrated vintage, new old stock Mullard 12AT7 vacuum tube which is hand-selected and burned in at our California headquarters prior to shipment, ensuring the highest quality.
