Mojave Audio MA-100 – No Longer Available

Small diaphragm, vacuum tube condenser microphone with interchangeable cardioid and omnidirectional capsules.
MFR# MA-100

Product Description

The Mojave Audio MA-100 is a small diaphragm, vacuum tube condenser microphone with interchangeable cardioid and omnidirectional capsules. The latest in a linage of successful microphone designs by David Royer, the MA-100s ‘cathode follower’ design allows use on high SPL instruments such as drums and guitar amplifiers, as well as the more common applications of a small diaphragm, vacuum tube condenser microphone, such as acoustic instruments, cymbals, stereo pairs and pianos. 

Featuring hand selected 3 micron capsules, high quality Jensen audio transformers and military-grade JAN 5840 vacuum tubes, the MA-100 performs at a level reminiscent of some of the best loved classic small diaphragm tube condenser microphones. The MA-100 power supply can be set for either 115v or 230v via an external switch. Each MA100 microphone, power supply and cable set is burned in for 24 hours, carefully tested and evaluated, then packaged in its protective case. 

Small Diaphragm – Big Sound! 
Why choose a small diaphragm microphone? Because small diaphragm microphones offer some distinct advantages over their larger brethren:

  • More consistent polar pattern
  • Better transient response
  • Ease of placement

Why choose an MA-100?

  • Extended low-frequency response
  • High SPL handling capability – try putting your large-diaphragm mic on a snare drum!

Features:

  • Interchangeable cardioid and omnidirectional capsules
  • Hand-selected three-micron capsule
  • Jensen audio transformer
  • Military grade JAN 5840 vacuum tube
  • External switchable power supply voltage
  • Ultra clean signal path
  • High SPL handling capability

Recommended applications:

  • Acoustic instruments
  • Drums
  • Guitar amplifiers
  • Piano
  • Stereo pairs (X/Y, MS, etc.)
  • Decca tree
  • Orchestral recording
  • Choral recording
  • Voice-overs and broadcast
  • Percussion

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!

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.

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.

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.
