Mojave Audio MA-300 Multi-Pattern Tube Condenser Microphone – No Longer Available
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 three-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. TheMA-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.

No problems with the mic. I do still want to find the “ideal” “sweet spot” for mic placement, so that the recorded sound matches what I hear behind the instrument, or what I perceive as my sound in my head! Let me know, Bill (or Pete).
So far I'm loving how this mic records my vocals.
They seem to sit in the mix with minimal effort and take EQ well.
Very happy with this mic. Everything I'd hoped it would be. Very full sound and great SPL
