Mojave sweetness

Mojave MA-100 gets a lot of use in my home studio. it sounds great on 6 and 12 string guitars. I still have to find the sweet spot like any other mic. highs are clear and present. lows sound natural. I do not have to eq this mic when recording acoustic instruments. overall i give this mic 5 stars because fits my needs perfectly.

MA-100 redefines the go- to snare drum mic

The venerable Shure SM 57 perhaps will always have a place in the pantheon of great snare drum mics, but I was completely unprepared for the sonic delivery provided by the Mojave MA-100. In some ways the analogy of saying the SM57 is a great movie in 2D whereas the MA100 is the 3D version would not be too much of a stretch. The presence, depth, clarity and Punch was startling, and oh so satisfying. Perhaps a new paradigm? Check it out for yourself, you'll have reason to rejoice having another great choice in a snare drum mic. Wow.

Great sounding mic

I love this thing. It has the best snare sound. Get rid of your 57s and put this guy on snare and be amazed at the body and balance your high hat and snare will receive. Also works great on acoustic guitar. This weekend I put a Neumann M 147 on the body and this guy on the neck, and WOW! Best guitar sound I have ever heard.
