The Mojave Audio MA-101fet is hands-down the most versatile small-diaphragm microphone I've ever used! It stood up to every application I have used it on, ranging from acoustic and electric guitars, horns, toms, snares, and as drum overheads. It's amazing at how it seems to bring everything to life. The best part is that it makes things sound the way I want them to without EQ and compression. True, the body of the mic seems a little unusual, but that's because it has to house that huge Jensen transformer which helps produce the "Mojave sound." This is easily one of the best and most versatile microphones I have in my mic locker.
I now have two of these and am extremely happy with the way they handle acoustic guitar, banjo and mandolin.
I record a lot of acoustic guitar in my home studio and have used/owned a few SDC mics over the years. This is the first small condenser mic I've used that had both Omni and cardiod capsules. A very 'open' natural, sound and built like a tank. The recorded sound is really good and I don't have to do much afterwards. I'm saving my pennies to purchase another one for sure! Yeah..I'm impressed!
