MXL -- when is crap not crap?

i was unhappy with the recording characteristics of one of my more expensive mice [and no, i've got nothing great] when i decided to shift to an inexpensive, likely shitty MXL ribbon mic that i'd been using for "room" sounds on loud rock guitars.  Think of it as a glorified SM-57, but not close-mic'ed.

I tried it for vox anyway.  Really digging it -- creamy, warm, lacks the "sizzle" of some other mics i've tried.  all around damned happy !

Unfortunately, all my crap is just crap.
