MXL V250 condenser microphone: $199.99, $169.99

That’s where the MXL V250 condenser comes in. A large diaphragm condenser mic, the MXL V250 can comfortably handle most vocalists, and can be used in a range of recording situations from acoustic guitar miking to more ambient, room-based applications. And in this sweet deal, Musician’s Friend has knocked $30 off its original price.
