No Better Mic at this Price pointThis is a must have if you record vocals. Stunning clarity. Vocal tracks cut right through the mix. It is as good if not better than the TLM-49 but adds the continuously variable polar patterns to cinch the deal. You can open up the pattern between cardioid and figure 8 to get this added top end from that extra vocal getting picked up as it passes around the backside of the mic. I'm convinced that no mic currently in production can best it on vocals and it also shines on acoustic instruments. David Royer is one hell of mic designer.

The Mojave Audio MA-300I have been using the AKG 414 XLS for just about everything. It's a wonderful mic but it lacks in delivering strong full vocal mid range for me.
A friend recommended the Mojave MA-300 as the next best thing to a Bock. And it is. This is a well built tube mic that has plenty of mid range power and is affordable. There is a marked difference in the recorded vocal track. Strong and full. I highly recommend this piece, you won't be disappointed with the professional sound it will deliver.

Mojave MA-300I use this mic for vocals paired with the Grace M103 Channel Strip. It gives my voice depth and bottom (that I don' have) that sounds natural and takes the EQ that I use for my voice beautifully. My vocals stand out in the mix. I also use it as a room mic for my Acoustic guitar, also paired with the Grace M103. It adds a very nice open and warm sound to blend with the close micing.

Make sure you use the right preampTried it with 2 preamps, Manley TNT and an Avalon 737. Much more transparent, clear and clean with the Manley cool side than the tube. The Avalon I got a warm sound , but not as transparent. Actually it sounded a bit dull, but interesting.
All in all a good mic with great capabilities.
