The MXL REVELATION MINI FET is a compact, large diaphragm condenser microphone inspired by the legendary MXL REVELATION tube microphone

MXL set out to create a microphone that has the same intimacy and warmth of a tube mic, but built around a FET circuit with a smaller footprint at an affordable price.

“While everyone loves a beautiful, elegant-sounding tube mic, sometimes artists require a smaller, more durable solution,” says Trevor Fedele, Director of Sales at MXL Microphones. “With these needs in mind, the MXL team put a great deal of energy into the design of the REVELATION MINI FET in order to preserve the classic REVELATION sound while increasing the mic’s flexibility for a range of applications, both in-studio and out on the road.”

MXL’s REVELATION MINI FET utilizes a premium 32mm center terminating, gold-sputtered capsule combined with a low noise circuit to provide pristine sound in a range of applications. The REVELATION MINI FET focuses on the midrange and lower frequencies, which sets the mic apart from basic entry-level condenser mics. This innovative design results in recordings with less hum and more music. Additionally, the inclusion of a three-stage pad (0, -10dB, -20dB) provides the flexibility needed for recording high SPL sources, such as horns and kickdrums.

  • The REVELATION MINI FET is designed to emulate the classic valve-based circuits of higher-end microphones, such as the MXL REVELATION, providing a rich, velvety tonality for your recordings.
  • A 32mm center terminating, gold sputtered capsule and a classic head basket delivers transparent and natural sound while minimizing internal reflections.
  • A 3-stage Pad (0, -10dB, -20dB) provides the flexibility needed for recording high SPL sources, such as horns and kickdrums.
  • The FET-based circuit design provides a low noise recording for more music and less hum.
