Cardioid Condenser Microphones
Mojave Audio Cardioid Condenser Microphones
A condenser microphone may be the workhorse of any studio, but that doesn't mean all condenser mics are the same. Far from it, in fact: they're high-precision equipment, and making them is a craft... one that often involves a world-class craftsman. For Mojave Audio cardioid condenser microphones, that craftsman is David Royer. He's been building mics since 1985, when he started out in his own garage workshop. After spending 20 years attracting a loyal following with his renowned microphone designs, he took things a step further by founding Mojave Audio in 2005. Today, the brand is still going strong, and mics like the ones in this section are the reason why.
If you're looking for the go-to option in the lineup, then that would probably be the Mojave Audio MA-201 FET Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone. It's surprisingly warm for a solid-state mic, thanks to a 2-micron gold-sputtered capsule backed by a sweet ensemble of top-shelf electronic components (and, of course, a foundation in David Royer's historic designs). Prefer your mic in a tube-driven flavor? In that case, check out the Mojave Audio MA-200 Large Diaphragm Tube Condenser Microphone. This model excels as a guitar or drum mic, and packs similarly high-end hardware as its solid-state cousin, but with the addition of a military-grade JAN 5840 vacuum tube that delivers performance akin to classic condenser microphones.
From broadcast to recording, there are plenty of applications for Mojave Audio cardioid condenser microphones. And since they give you the choice between tube or solid-state, it's pretty easy to customize the mic to your personal taste in tone. These are the latest generation in a long lineage of microphones based on David Royer's impressive design skills, so if you've been looking for a mic that can honestly claim to have a master's hand in its construction, you'll certainly find that here in this section.
