MA-50

The challenge? Create a transformer-less microphone circuit without
the inherent problems found in transformer-less microphones. Technical
Grammy® award winning microphone designer David Royer has
created a thoroughly modern microphone that rises to that challenge:
the new MA-50. Designed to produce the clarity and realism that
Mojave microphones are known for – at an entry level price – the MA-50
out performs well-known transformerless mics costing many times
more.

The MA-50 is the perfect microphone for pros and semi-pros alike.
Utilizing the same capsule as the MA-200 and MA-201fet, it handles
the fastest transients with ease – even up to 140 dB.
