However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

MXL Genesis Tube Condenser Microphone

The MXL Genesis is a masterfully engineered tube microphone with features and performance levels found in mics priced thousands of pounds more. From intimate vocal recordings to fast-attacking rap, the Genesis cuts beautifully through the mix with spectacular detail. Recording professionals and musicians are praising the Genesis for its clean highs, warm mids, and tight bottom-end, features attributed in part to the genuine Mullard 12AT7 tube.

Narrow Cardiooid Polar Pattern

The MXL Genesis Tube Condenser Microphone is a professional tube microphone with a narrow cardiooid polar pattern for enhanced pickup in front of the mic, paired with a high sensetivity and extremely flat response. This makes the MXL Genesis Tube Mic ideal for recording a range of voice styles, in addition to instruments including guitars and more.

Included Accessories

The MXL Genesis Tube Condenser Microphone boasts clean highs, whilst maintaining depth and colour in the low end, and warmth in the mids. A 150Hz, 6dB/octave low‑cut filter switch is also added on to the body of the microphone to provide reduced noise and fuzz whilst recording. To receive an even cleaner sound, the MXL Genesis Tube Mic includes a old‑plated pop screen to clip on to the mic body. Also included is an XLR cable, robust elastic cradle‑type shockmount, rigid stand‑clip, and external PSU.


“We recorded all of the vocals on the Pink Noise album with the MXL-V69. We loved the sound we got from it. We’ve had the Genesis in the studio for a while now, and it has a much fuller sound. The bottom end goes deeper and the vocals cut through the mix even more now. The next album (which we are recording now) will feature the Genesis so much that we may have to give it a credit on the album!”
