Mojave Audio MA-201fet
The MA-201fet is a solid-state 48v phantom powered condenser microphone with a fixed cardioid response and a big American made Jensen transformer on the output. It is based around a military-grade FET and custom designed low-noise resistors for excellent performance. With high SPL handling and a smooth response, the MA-200 is fit for a wider range of sources than most single sided microphones.
The solid-state circuit of the MA-201fet offers exceptional transient response so instruments and sources with fast transients are ideal. Percussion, Kick Drums, drum overheads in pairs come to mind. With unusual high SPL handling for a FET mic, it is also a great option for higher SPL sources like guitar/bass amps. It also provides a full bodied response without sounding too bright or too bass heavy, making it a great choice for vocals, both male and female. Broadcast and VO artists love this microphone due to its unusual smoothness. And it holds up at a distance, so piano, acoustic instruments and room miking are all strong applications. Versatility is the nature of a Mojave microphone.
Like all Mojave microphones the MA-201 is burned in, tested, and evaluated before packaging. It is included with a hard-shell protective case and professional grade shock mount.
