Mojave Audio MA-301 FET Multi-Pattern Condenser Microphone – No Longer Available

Multi-pattern large diaphragm solid-state condenser microphone
MFR# MA-301fet

Product Description

The Mojave Audio MA-301fet is a multi-pattern large diaphragm, solid-state condenser microphone. Based upon the popular MA-201fet designed by David Royer, the MA-301fet adds a three-posistion pickup pattern selector, a 15dB pad and a switchable bass roll-off. Utilizing a three-micron gold-sputtered capsule, high-quality Jensen audio transformer, military-grade FET and custom designed low-noise resistors, the MA-301fet performs at a level reminiscent of some of the best loved classic condenser microphones. Each MA-301fet microphone is carefully tested and evaluated, then packaged in its protective case with a professional grade shock-mount.

i've been upgrading microphones as my skills develop. i've tried several things on outside kick that were mostly not awesome. this is great for that. i've never heard a fet 47 in person, but as soon as i put this mic up and got the phase working with the inside mic - it is the familiar sound that i have been chasing for a while and has improved my recordings. i've not owned it long so i am still getting to know it and trying it out on things - so i'm sure i'll find lots of uses, but for me, just kick out was well worth the expense.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
