Review from Sound on Sound...

Here's their summary....


Judgment Day

Having at least one multi‑pattern mic in the studio is always useful, and in the Revelation you also get a touch of tonal flattery, but without the flabbiness you sometimes get when designers increase the valve distortion above the low levels that were present in true vintage mic designs. Once again, MXL have produced a great‑looking mic that delivers the kind of performance you'd expect to pay rather more for than you do: I like this microphone very much.
