MXL Black Widow - Impressions?

It got my attention.

Any owners? I'd like to learn more about it.

Looks like it will be a decent mic.

I just ordered this microphone a couple days ago, but it hasn't arrived yet. It's so new, I couldn't find reviews or posts about it anywhere, so I just went for it. It looks sexy, at least!

Just had a crisis... :O

How much did you pay CaseyNova? You'll have to let us know how it performs If you don't, I will need to buy one regardless.

I got it off ebay for $119.00 through Unique Squared, an online pro audio dealer. Apparently the mic's been discontinued due to some legal reasons, or so claims the retailer who seems to be one of the only ones selling them at this moment.
If you're thinking about getting it, I talked them down $20.00 and you can probably do the same.
The mic will come tomorrow. As soon as I can I'll upload some audio samples so that you can hear it first hand

Black Widow Sample

Here's my gf singing the first stanza of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" through the MXL Black Widow. I'm using an Mbox 3 with Logic Pro, zero gain, and on a Macbook Pro Retina.
It's a nice, clear mic with a touch of warmth, imo
