A versatile stereo tube pair with interchangeable capsules.

The Mojave Audio MA-100SP is a matched pair of MA-100 small-diaphragm, vacuum-tube condensers with interchangeable cardioid and omnidirectional capsules and dual power supplies. Packaged in a single carrying case, the MA-100SP provides professional recording engineers with a convenient, easy to set up system for stereo recording applications.

The small diaphragm MA-100 condenser microphone with interchangeable cardioid and omnidirectional capsules. Featuring hand selected 3-micron capsules, high-quality Jensen audio transformers and military-grade JAN 5840 vacuum tubes, the MA-100 performs at a level reminiscent of some of the best-loved classic small-diaphragm tube condenser microphones. The MA-100 power supply can be set for either 115v or 230v via an external switch.

The latest in a lineage of successful microphone designs by David Royer, one of an elite group of microphone designers who know that music and sound are inseparable from electronic design, the Mojave MA-100 microphone's cathode follower design allows use on high SPL instruments such as drums and guitar amplifiers, as well as the more common applications of a small diaphragm, vacuum tube condenser microphone, such as acoustic instruments, cymbals, stereo pairs and pianos. Each MA-100 microphone, power supply and cable set is burned in for 24 hours, carefully tested and evaluated, then packaged in its protective case.

Small Diaphragm-Big Sound!
Why choose a small diaphragm microphone? Because small diaphragm microphones offer some distinct advantages over their larger brethren:
¢More consistent polar pattern
¢Better transient response
¢Ease of placement

Why choose an MA-100 Mic from Mojave Audio?
¢Extended low-frequency response
¢High SPL handling capability-try putting your large-diaphragm mic on a snare drum!
