Mojave Audio MA-50K Cardioid Condenser Microphone

Large-diaphragm cardioid condenser microphone with 1" gold-sputtered 3-micron capsule, fixed cardioid polar pattern, and transformerless circuit design


Product Description

The Mojave Audio MA-50K was created by David Royer to offer a transformerless microphone circuit without the inherent issues found in typical transformerless mic designs. Producing the realism and clarity that Mojave mics are known for at an entry level price, the MA-50 outperforms transformerless microphones costing several times more.

The MA-50 features the same hand-selected large diaphragm 1" 3-micron capsule found in the MA-201fet. It features a single sided diaphragm in a fixed cardioid polar pattern with very fast transient response, excellent low frequency accuracy, and high SPL handling. This single sided method yields a fantastic proximity effect for using distance to the source as a way of increasing the bass or making the source more natural sounding with distance. The single sided capsule also lowers self-noise, and the Mojave transformerless design offers even lower noise with a more neutral response, leaving room for sonic color of your preamp to shine through.

The natural, even response of the MA-50 combined with the bass response up close makes this an ideal mic for male vocals and voice-over. When used with a little more distance, it's ideal as a full bodied acoustic instrument mic, a detailed Foley/ADR mic, or in stereo pairs on larger sources. The fast transient response also makes it a great option for guitar amps, percussion, or drum overheads. The MA-50 includes a shock mount and hard-shell carrying case.

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.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
