MOJAVE AUDIO DEBUTS NEW MA-1000 TUBE CONDENSER — AudioTechnology
Mojave Audio introduces its new MA-1000 large-diaphragm multi-pattern tube condenser microphone, the first model in the company’s new Signature Series line of products. Designed by David Royer, known for his work with ribbon microphones, the MA-1000 features an original new old-stock 5840 tube, a 251-style capsule, and a custom-designed transformer built by Coast Magnetics. The MA-1000 offers a 15dB pad, low frequency roll-off and a remotely controlled, continuously variable polar pattern selector located on microphone’s power supply. With high-quality components, the MA-1000 is designed to deliver an airy top end, realism in the mids, and an accurate yet authoritative bottom end.
Dusty Wakeman, President of Mojave Audio, commented on the company’s new MA-1000 Large-diaphragm Multi-pattern Tube Condenser Microphone, “The MA-1000 is a versatile, high-end microphone designed specifically to address the most challenging studio recording applications. The mic’s switchable 15dB pad enables one to address of variety of high SPL challenges while the low frequency roll-off capability makes it a tremendous microphone for both vocal and voiceover projects. Cosmetically, as the first offering in Mojave Audio’s new Signature Series product line, this mic represents a step forward compared to Mojave’s traditional ‘working class’ designs. I have every confidence this microphone will be well-received by engineers and artists from a wide range of musical disciplines.”
The Mojave Audio MA-1000 carries an MSRP of $2,995 US and will become available the fourth quarter of 2015. The microphone ships with a new shock mount design created by and licensed from sibling company Royer Labs.
