Mojave Audio MA-50 Large-Diaphragm Condenser Microphone

A killer first "pro" mic with the same capsule as Mojave's MA-200 in a transformerless design, the cardioid MA-50 stacks up against much more expensive mics.

The challenge? Create a transformerless microphone circuit without the inherent problems found in transformerless microphones. Technical Grammy Award-winning microphone designer David Royer has created a thoroughly modern microphone that rises to that challenge: the MA-50BLK. Designed to produce the clarity and realism that Mojave microphones are known for, at an entry level price, the MA-50BLK outperforms well-known transformerless mics costing many times more.

The MA-50BLK is the perfect microphone for pros and semi-pros alike. Utilizing the same capsule as the MA-200SN and MA-201VG, it handles the fastest transients with ease -- even up to 140 dB.
