Mojave MA201 FET Microphone Demo -- Acoustic Guitar Video

The impressive Mojave MA201 FET records some impressive acoustic guitar. It has a full, rich, and balanced character that shined through on both a clean Millennia mic preamp, as well as a more colored tube preamp from Sebatron. The MA-201 from Mojave Audio doesn't have the harshness associated with many of the large diaphragm mics currently being built, and proves here to provide detail, without that brassy top end, and instead has a full, rich and well-balanced character. Sound Pure carries the full line of Mojave microphones in addition to owning and using them in our own high end professional recording studios, so please don't hesitate to send us any question that you might have about them.

Manufacturer's Description from Mojave Mics

The MA-201fet is a large diaphragm, phantom-powered, solid-state condenser microphone with a fixed cardioid pattern. With its roots in a lineage of microphone designs by David Royer, the MA-201fet 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 a 3-micron gold-sputtered capsule, high-quality Jensen audio transformer, military-grade FET and custom designed low-noise resistors, the MA-20fet performs at a level reminiscent of some of the best loved classic condenser microphones. Each MA-201fet microphone is carefully tested and evaluated, then packaged in its protective case with a professional grade shockmount.

Features:

  • Hand-selected 3-micron 1" capsule
  • Jensen audio transformer
  • Military-grade FET
  • Custom designed low-noise resistors

About Manufacturer

David Royer started Mojave Audio in 1985 in the garage of his house. The location was Fullerton, California, and Mojave Audio was a one-man, custom pro audio gear shop. David is best known for his ribbon microphone designs with Royer Labs, but he originally started out designing and building vacuum tube microphones, mic pre's and compressors for engineers in the Los Angeles area. Since the mid 1990's, Davidýs custom Mojave products have been used on a number of well-known recordings and have achieved legendary status among a small circle of high-end engineers. With the launching of Mojave Audio, we are able to bring David's non-ribbon designs to the world.
