Mojave Audio MA-50 Large-diaphragm Transformerless Condenser Microphone

SGD 895.00

“The MA‑50 sits in that price band just above the more budget options but, to my ears, it sounds noticeably better than some of the cheaper mics I’ve looked at in recent years. I’d always recommend that it’s better to build up a small collection of ‘good’ mics slowly rather than rushing out and buying a number of budget mics that you may quickly outgrow and have trouble moving on!” – Sound On Sound


“From the moment I started using Mojave’s large diaphragm condenser MA-50 mic, it sounded great on everything. Microphone designer David Royer went on a mission to create an affordable, transformerless large diaphragm microphone that would outperform more expensive mics of the same ilk. I think he achieved something special, one that holds its own among the best mics out there.” – Ben Bernstein, Tape Op


“The MA-50 is a versatile workhorse microphone that provides unmatched quality in its price range. It is a perfect solution for single mic project studios and a great addition to even well-stocked mic closets.” – Pro Sound News


“It’s kind of an easy entry point into the higher-end microphone world, from the consumer and even pro-sumer levels, to what the big boys use. The leap in sound is amazing, but considering the competition, the leap in cost isn’t that big, and the MA-50 is well worth the asking price.” – Performer Magazine


Rivals Expensive Transformerless Microphones

The challenge? Create a transformerless microphone circuit without the inherent problems found in transformerless microphones. Technical Grammy® award winning microphone designer David Royer has created a thoroughly modern microphone that rises to that challenge: the MA-50. Designed to produce the clarity and realism that Mojave microphones are known for – at an entry level price – the MA-5 out performs well-known transformerless mics costing many times more. The MA-50 is the perfect microphone for pros and semi-pros alike. Utilising the same capsule as the MA-200 and MA-201fet, it handles the fastest transients with ease – even up to 140 dB.
