Mojave Audio in Burbank, Calif., introduces the Mojave Audio MA-301fet ($895 MSRP), a solid-state, large diaphragm condenser microphone with a hand selected, 3-micron thick, 1-inch (diameter) gold sputtered capsule. Based upon the popular MA-201fet designed by David Royer (known for his work with ribbon microphones), the new MA-301fet offers cardioid, omnidirectional, and Figure-8 (bi-directional) capabilities, and incorporates a switchable 15dB pad and switchable bass roll-off.
Mojave Audio recommends the MA-301fet for vocals, voice-over, broadcast, electric guitar, piano, acoustic instruments, both drum overheads, room mics (for drum ambience), and high-SPL sources such as kick drums and bass guitar amps.
The new MA-301fet promises warm, full-bodied reproductions of vocals and instruments without the shrillness and high frequency artifacts so often encountered with modern condenser microphones. The microphone’s military grade FET circuitry, Jensen transformer, and custom designed low-noise resistors combine to deliver an ultra clean signal path with low noise and high quality performance.
Mojave Audio expects to ship the MA-301fet in February 2012.
