Designed to produce the clarity and realism that Mojave microphones are known for, at an entry level price, the MA-50BLK (black version) outperforms well-known transformerless mics costing many times more. The MA-50BLK is the perfect microphone for pros and semi-pros alike. Utilizing the same single-sided capsule as the MA-200SN and MA-201VG, it handles the fastest transients with ease – even up to 140 dB.
Here’s the deal: we’re looking for a great artist to win and demo the Mojave MA-50 for us. The winner will get a new mic to keep, and will work with us to shoot some product demos and behind-the-scenes videos that we’ll share on our site and social media channels (WATCH an example of our past winner, Jesus Martinez, using his new MA-200 in Los Angeles). You’ll also be featured in an upcoming print issue of Performer. Cool, huh! PLUS we’ll add your track to a year-end digital sampler on Bandcamp.
