What We Think

"We've been a very big fan of the Mojave Audio MA-200 ever since it was first released a few years back. It was a revolutionary microphone in that it brought the truly great hybridized sound of a couple of legendary German microphones into the reach of project and home studio owners. But then an interesting thing happened; it caught on with A-List artists, producers, and engineers began using the MA-200 with widespread acclaim and commercial success. The MA-200 has become loved for it's rich, deep, lustrous sound. Wonderful on a wide variety of sources, it's perfect for anything that you wish to feature while instilling a sense of depth on the source - the Mojave Audio MA-201fet would be a better choice for a more aggressive, in your face tone or where you may need a slightly faster attack or slew rate. Either way, it's a mic to have - and not just one of. These are great tools for your room microphones on drums or ensembles, drum overheads, piano, strings, acoustic guitar, and even electric guitar - but especially vocals; male or female. I have recorded some of the best sounding male vocals I've ever captured with this microphone and though I've never had the opportunity to use it on female vocals, I would not hesitate to put it up, in the least. While no one microphone will be the perfect choice for every application, the MA-200 is a workhorse. And if you need multi-pattern performance with the same sound, there is the new Mojave Audio MA-300. Check it out - you won't regret it."

    Lots of Character

    This mic has a very forward midrange with sweet and mellow highs. It sounds fantastic on solo acoustic instruments such as banjo, flute, and violin. With vocalists, it has a strong personality, so it either gels with a particular singer or it doesn't. When it sounds good on a singer, it sounds very very good.
