Mojave MA-50 Large-diaphragm Transformerless Condenser Microphone

The Mojave MA-50 is a transformer less large diaphragm condenser microphone featuring a fixed cardioid polar pattern. Designed by David Royer, the MA-50 is Mojave’s “budget” large-diaphragm studio microphone, aimed initially at home and project studio users. Transformerless microphones have an inherent inability to adequately capture sharp transients. In essence, the concept behind the MA-50 was to address the deficiencies of transformerless microphones, and build a high quality microphone to exceed them. The MA-50 can handle fast transients even up to 140dB! The MA-50 is a great alternative to the Neumann TLM 103, and a great addition to any studio.
