Mojave's flagship mic, the MA-1000 was designed to compete with not only today's top microphones, but fine vintage microphones as well. Equipped with a 251-style capsule a transformer custom-designed by Coast Magnetics, and an NOS 5840 tube, the MA-1000 also boasts the flexibility of a continuously variable pickup pattern selector, switchable bass roll-off and 15dB pad. If you want clarity and presence so pronounced listeners feel like they were in studio with you, the MA-1000 is your mic.
Blessed with the same military-grade JAN 5840 tubes as its little brother below, the MA-300 adds several degrees of flexibility and control. Continuously variable polar patterns let you select from omnidirectional to cardioid to figure-8 coverage. Other controls include a bass roll-off and a 15 dB pad. All of this control makes the MA-300 an excellent choice on any instrument or performer.
When your tracks need a certain sense of warmth, only a tube microphone will do. The MA-200 capsule houses, among other top-shelf components, a military grade JAN 5840 tube. This eliminates the shrill, high-end distortion that can plague some modern condensers, while granting you all the amazing warmth and depth associated with vintage microphones.
If you're taking on a variety of studio projects on a limited budget, the MA-301 is your savior. Its multi-pattern functionality picks up audio in a cardioid, omnidirectional, or figure-8 pattern, so it excels on instruments, groups, and podcasts with multiple guests. Nothing but top-quality components go into the MA-301, from its Jensen transformer and military-grade FET, so you can rest assured you'll be capturing your sources with a worthy mic.
Tuned for the most discerning producer's ears, yet priced like a utilitarian workhorse, the MA-201 is equipped to handle any studio task. Its solid-state design retains a warm sonic profile, lending instruments a full-bodied character, plus enough air to make vocals gleam.
Looking for the Mojave sound at a more accessible price point? The MA-50 delivers! This transformerless condenser features the same capsule as its big brother, the MA-201. Pit it against any transformerless condenser out there and it will exceed your expectations.
