Mojave Audio MA-300 Large Diaphragm Tube Microphone

Mojave Audio MA-300 Large Diaphragm Tube Microphone Details

The Mojave Audio MA-300 is a multi-pattern large diaphragm, vacuum tube condenser microphone. Based upon the widely accepted MA-200 designed by David Royer, the MA-300 adds a continuously variable pickup pattern selector, 15dB pad and a switchable bass roll-off. The MA-300 gives warm, full-bodied reproductions of vocals and instruments, with none of the shrillness and high frequency distortion artifacts that are often encountered with modern condenser microphones. Utilizing hand-selected, double diaphragm 3-micron capsules, high-quality Jensen audio transformers and military-grade JAN 5840 vacuum tubes, the MA-300 performs at a level reminiscent of some of the best loved classic condenser microphones. The MA-300 power supply can be set for 115V and 230V, 50 or 60 Hz, through an internal switch (100V is also available). Each MA-300 microphone, power supply and cable set is burned in for 24 hours, carefully tested and evaluated, then packaged in its protective case-within-a-case.

A GEM April 18, 2014
Reviewer: KC from CA United States  
For this price, you are not gonna find anything better! I actually use this on my partner's vocals (female with low smokey voice on alt rock). I actually chose this over the U87ai...

The Mojave's got mojo that is perfect for alt rock.

What's better is that your wallet will also think it's a great option.
